Power Yoga is also known as Dynamic Yoga. As the name suggests, Power Yoga is fast paced and a strenuous exercise which makes it different from other forms of Yoga. Power Yoga can be used for a heavy work out and is primarily useful as a tool for weight loss. It does not have any fixed poses to be followed. The poses may differ according to the teacher or instructor. Power Yoga aims at improving strength, stamina and flexibility of the body there by generating energy by removing body toxins through sweat and getting rid of obesity.
