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.

Power Yoga is a fitness based vinyasa yoga practice, An offshoot of Ashtanga Yoga, it has many of the same qualities and benefits, including building internal heat, increased stamina, strength, and flexibility, as well as stress reduction. Our curriculum for these classes will typically include the following elements:

Yoga asana (postures)
Pranayama (breath control)
Yoga and Vedic philosophy
Meditation
Physical adjustments
Anatomy of yoga (more than most Teacher Training programs)
Chakras
Working with injury
Creative sequencing
Yogic diet
Teaching yoga
Home practice
Selfless service
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. Please call on 8377053325 to book a trial class.

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 BBC, 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.
