APY 200-hr Teacher Training
Become a Certified Yoga Instructor in Dallas
In American Power Yoga we use different physical challenges taken from many practices of Yoga, Kung Fu, and Qi Gung, as well as the very latest in Western rehabilitation. This allows us to replicate the mental, emotional, and physical challenges we all face, each day. We condition the body while strengthening the mind.
I strongly believe, by making our mind strong and flexible enough to successfully deal with daily challenges, it will lead to a happier and more fulfilling life. I also try to infuse elements of all the branches of classical yoga within the practice, by reminding the practitioners of the importance of taking care of themselves daily (devotion), educating them on the ancient laws of energy and the latest studies on Western medicine (knowledge), urging them to use their strength and compassion to assist others (service), and encouraging them to see each class as a meditation. Because we hold on to the traditional values of this practice, in many ways I consider us “new traditionalists.”
