“Power yoga” is a style of yoga characterized by vigorous, fluid, and creative pose sequences sometimes set in a heated room. Power yoga is a vigorous practice intended to increase your heart rate and strength and tone muscles, while also calming your mind and feeding your soul. Power yoga is also synonymous with the term vinyasa. PPY yoga classes are heated, but are NOT Bikram style classes. Since PPY classes are heated, so kids under 16 may not take regular studio classes. Check class descriptions for specific temperatures and more information about each class format. Your PPY class is set to music that will get you moving, so plan to get a full-body workout!
Mat, towel, and water. PPY normally has mats and towels available for rental and a water cooler for your refillable bottle, but these amenities are currently suspended because of COVID-19. Note: Please bring a yoga mat, not a thicker pilates or general exercise mat. Yoga mats are usually less than 5mm thick for your safety. Thicker mats can be unsafe for yoga and cause you to slip. Show up with an open heart! Leave your worries, ego, and your phone at the door!
We recommend you wear active apparel with moisture-wicking properties or non-restrictive and cool materials. But remember, we like to go upside down at PPY, so pick your loose clothing with that in mind! Note: Yoga is practiced barefoot for your safety. Please bring sticky socks if you require socks for practice, as regular socks are unsafe in yoga.
We know that entering a yoga studio can cause anxiety, but we are so glad you are here and your instructor will tell you everything you need to know for your first time at yoga or your first time at PPY. If you have never done yoga, heated yoga, power yoga, or vinyasa yoga before, we recommend that you try any of the classes marked as Beginner Friendly first. You may need to attend a few beginner friendly classes before you can “go with the flow”, but that’s okay! Listen to your instructor’s words in class. He or she will guide you safely and confidently into poses. Please see our Studio Etiquette here for additional info.
Come hydrated! Heated and power yoga works to detox and cleanse your body of toxins, so if you take a PPY class when your body is not properly hydrated, you may feel uneasy during or after class. Prepare for class with a protein snack, but avoid large meals less than 2 hours before class.
Come to yoga! You don’t avoid baths because you are too dirty, do you? Same goes for yoga! Yes – come to yoga to increase and maintain flexibility. Flexibility is relative!
PPY classes that are heated more than 85 degrees are not recommended for women that are pregnant. If you are pregnant, please check with your doctor first, and let your instructor know when you check in to the class and they will offer you safe options during class.
Since our classes are all heated, kids ages of 14-17 may practice at PPY with a parent/guardian present and a signed waiver onsite. Must be 18 to purchase services online. Kids Yoga parties and private sessions are available. Contact us for info!
We require all clients to sign up for PPY classes in advance using the scheduling link to MBO here or on the MBO app. We understand that life happens, but if you miss a class that you have signed up for in advance, and fail to cancel more than 3 hours before class, you may be charged for the class as if you attended, or charged a penalty.
Generally, studio doors are only open 25 minutes before and after each class. See our class schedule. The studio locks and is closed to the public during classes for safety. Please contact PPY at email@example.com or 678-861-4374 for appointments and information about the studio.
PPY has a strict late policy of NO ADMITTANCE after class begins. This is for your safety, and for the safety and respect of others. Please try to arrive at least 15 minutes before class begins, and 25 minutes early if it is your first class.
Vinyasa means “to place in a particular way.” Your PPY instructor may use the term vinyasa to refer to a particular sequence of poses linked by breath that is often repeated throughout class. You may also hear the term vinyasa to refer to the style of yoga offered at PPY, also referred to as power yoga. PPY classes are creative sequences of poses mindfully designed to transform and strengthen your bodies’ performance, and flow from pose to pose while syncing your breath the movement.
