The Power of Release
On July 31, 2012 in
What could you release that no longer serves you? When you release a feeling, person, or obligation that no longer serves, you open to something bigger, and set yourself free.
Just for today, see which one of these statements would serve you best, or write your own:
- I release my judgment.
- I release my partner to do what he needs to do.
- I release my fear and worry of being alone, poor, or left behind.
- I release my grasping to something that doesn’t exist.
- I release my need to know why and to understand.
- I release my incessant wishing that things could be different.
- I release my criticism.
- I release my resentment.
- I release my disappointment.
- I release my feeling of not being enough.

Power Yoga: Everything You Need To Know
If you’ve never tried this invigorating and fast-paced practice of power yoga, you might be wondering what it’s all about. Here’s our rundown on what power yoga is, where it came from, and how it might improve your health! What is Power Yoga Power Yoga - it sounds daunting, but what actually is it? Power yoga is a sequence of postures that are specially designed to build on strength, stamina and flexibility, all while being fast moving. Power Yoga is derived from the Ashtanga yoga tradition, which can be equally as physically demanding, but works through building heath in your body, and moving through the vinyasa sequences in a fast paced way. Unlike Ashtanga, power yoga practice doesn’t have a set sequence of postures, and any class can be different from the next. However, it will usually start with Sun Salutation poses, to build heat within your body, and will often feature a strong focus on yoga poses that will build up strength and get your heart pounding and body sweating - power yoga can be a full on cardio workout!

What is Power?
When we think of power, we tend to think of domination or control. A few years ago, though, I heard of a healthier and more yogic definition of power which resonated with me: power can be measured by how quickly you can make your desire into a reality. When we are in our personal power, we get what we want so easily, as if in the blink of an eye. To access the kind of personal power that allows us to quickly transform what we want into what we have, we must have a clear vision of which possibilities we actually desire. Visualization and goal setting can be a helpful practice to turn the gaze inward and initiate this kind of alchemy.
