What exactly is power yoga and how is it different from traditional yoga?

Just like Zumba is a more advanced and improvised form of aerobics, similarly power-yoga is an improvised form of traditional yoga as we know it in India. It is also known as gym yoga and is for those who aren’t really satisfied with just the stretching and breathing exercises that traditional or vinyasa/ashtanga yoga offers, we have now brought what’s a rage in the west – Power Yoga. Power yoga consists of “asanas” that are harder, help in building muscle and reduce weight. Power yoga isn’t completely different from the traditional Indian yoga, it is just a more advanced version.

Although Birch and Kest are popularly believed to have brought power yoga to the west after learning it from Shri Krishna Pattabhi Jois, every teacher has his/her own style of teaching power yoga.

You’re welcome to come, visit our studio, have a trial class and then decide if you want to join. Trial classes are for Rs 300.

      Sorry to tell you that I don’t have knowledge of any other academy there.

      Thanks,
      Nandita:)

      • my reply is under moderation for more than 20 days,and when ppl come with new questions,they get an instant reply,great team work guys,great!!

        • Sahil’s First question: I belong from sonipat,is your franchisee located near metro station?so that it can be convenient for me to come to Delhi.What are the batches available now?

          Dear Sahil, apologies for the late reply. Actually when you see newer enquiries being answered, that is usually because the officer doesn’t accurately know the answer to your question. This is a self ownen Delhi Dance Academy center not a franchise and here we take classes for all dance forms.

          We are very close to Kailash Colony metro station. From here, you just need to get a cycle rickshaw to Tagore International school and then follow the lane with the Maruti Suzuki Showroom.

          Once again, apologies for the delay in answering.

          Best regards

  • Hi I am overweight, I am sure that yoga will help me out but I am not flexible at all. Though I want to loose weight but I undergo a lot of pain every time I try exercising..please advise what kind of yoga or dance can be suitable for a beginner.

    • Ruchika, it will hurt initially but as you go on, the pain will subside as long as it is not because of an injury. You can try starting with Power Yoga which is appropriate for a beginner. Give me a call to book a trial class. Regards Arjun 9910222770.

  • Hi,
    I am a working woman,presently on leave for a month.l want to join power yoga to get toned and also to reduce abdominal fat which i have acquired after 2 pregnancies.i have not done yoga ever in my life.can i join yr course for a month? Can i do it at home later after i join back work?

    • Nazish, yes, you can join Power Yoga for weight loss after pregnancy but it depends on a few factors that the counselor will be able to advise you on. Please come over and meet the instructor. Regards Arjun 9910222770

  • Please suggest if a person will also get a diet plan after joining the classes?

    • Hi Neha, you can pay Rs 1000 for diet counselling where you will get 4 sittings with the counselor. :) Regards Arjun 9910222770

  • Hi Arjun my problem is that I’m a student and I cant get time for myself. Please can you tell how much weight I will lose in 1 month because I’ve become so fat these days.

    • Kavita, you can expect to lose roughly 2 kgs per month, but it cannot be said for sure, as it depends from person to person. Some lose less, some lose way more. Having said that, power yoga is good for yuor health and is something you must join to stay fit in general also! Regards
      Arjun

  • Hi there…I just wanted to know the average weight one can shed after starting power yoga and within how much time? Also, please confirm if there will be any diet plan along with power yoga?

    • Dear Neha, on average people lose upto 2 kgs per month doing power yoga, but this is not guaranteed, it depends on your body and various other factors. Some people lose way more also. Dr Narula, who is the power yoga teacher is also a doctor and you can pay Rs 1000 extra for diet counselling where you’ll get 4 sittings. That will further improve the kgs that you lose doing Power Yoga. Best regards
      Arjun. Class times: Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 7-8am.

  • I am 70kgs and want to lose at least 10kgs of weight. Will power yoga be helpful in losing my weight rapidly?

    • Dear Parinita, yes, power yoga is very good for weight loss, and so are Aerobics, Martial Arts and Zumba. Come and take a trial class from 7-8am on Mon, Wed or Fri. Regards Arjun

  • What are the timings of batch?

    • Hi Rahul, 7-8am Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Regards Arjun

  • HI !
    I am interested to join the certificate course of power yoga.
    me apna career yoga me banana chahti hu, so after this course kya me yoga me career bana sakti hu

    • Hi Sonia, to make your career in this field, you need to be a master of the discipline and therefore you will need to do level a, b and c for 9 months before you can start taking yoga classes and become a yoga trainer yourself. This course definitely is a good start. see if you can join the 7-8am batch. Regards Arjun. Call me on 9910222770 to discuss.

  • I would like to take the classes bet 1 – 2 in the afternoon. Is it possible?

    • Hi Priya, is it you alone or is there a group that wants to join? If there are over 4 people, then we can start a 1-2pm batch :) Arjun

  • What do you charge per month for the classes and how many days a week ?

    • Hi Sameer, it’s 3 days a week and Rs 2000 per month :) Please call us to arrange a trial class at a time convenient to you.

  • do u have any academy in gurgaon?

    • Not at present Shobali, we will have one there soon. The one we had is under renovation.

  • Hi, are there any plans of coming up with a weekend class for power yoga?

    • Hi Saumya, we think Power yoga needs to be done at least 3 times a week so your body stays in tune. We therefore don’t have any weekend-only batches for any fitness workouts. Regards, Arjun

      • Hey!

        Please tell me the Dance form for which you looking for.

  • Hi, I want to do power yoga but I’d like to know first, do I need to have some basic yoga experience to do power yoga?

    • Hello Huda, power yoga is muscle exercises mixed with conventional yoga stretches and breathing techniques.

      You DON’T need to have any knowledge of yoga at all to enroll for this course, our qualified instructor will train you from scratch :)

      Thanks for asking,

      Arjun

Dance Away that Flab

Can't decide between the gym and dancing to lose that extra weight or to stay fit in general? Here's a list of dance forms taught at Delhi Dance Academy with the average calories burnt in 1 hour:

Zumba: 500-1000
Aerobics: 500-800
Jazz Contemporary: 400-600
Bharatnatyam: 400-600
Hip-Hop: 350-550
Belly dance: 250-450
Bollywood: 300
Salsa: 200-300

These numbers vary with your body weight and the amount of effort you put in.

How can I lose weight?
You lose weight when you consume or burn more calories than you take. Burning 3500 calories means you lose 1 lbs or 450 grams (almost half a Kilo) of weight.

In other words, if you cut 500 calories from your diet each day or burn 500 calories working out or dancing, you would lose 0.45 kgs in a week. :)

At Delhi Dance Academy we can also talk to you about your daily diet and recommend changes to help you lose weight.

Delhi Dance Academy has been featured on 24 x 7 News Channel as one of Delhi's best dance institutes. We have made recent appearances on TV Channels like Aajtak, E TV, NHK World, MTv and NDTV Goodtimes. We are among the top 50 activities to do while in Delhi by TripAdvisor with excellent reviews.
