2. It Offers Continuous Activity
Jen Cassetty, an American College of Sports Medicine certified Health Fitness Specialist, based in New York City, explained that while yoga was not a high-intensity exercise, usually the standard classes for power yoga ran for 75 to 90 minutes. During this time, yoga practitioners are taken through a series of poses. Each pose is usually held for around five breaths. Power yoga, unlike softer, gentler varieties of yoga, works at a faster pace and offers an intense workout which will make the body sweat.
This continual activity means muscles are working for the full exercise period. This is achieved through a series of core work and strengthening, lengthening, and balancing poses. As with any effective weight loss program, the disciplined practitioner should engage in this activity four to five times a week to fully experience a changed body shape. Practicing the discipline regularly is key to achieving lasting results.
