The Evolve Yoga teacher’s role is to guide students to make their practice their own and their intention personal as each student is encouraged to embark on their own yoga journey. As is often said in an Evolve yoga class, “I am here to be your guide. You know your body best, listen to it and follow your intuition.

Accessible to beginners and advanced students Evolve yoga studio emphasizes breathing to connect the body and mind.

Power Vinyasa Flow Yoga is a powerful, energetic form of yoga where students fluidly move from one pose to the next while connecting their breathing to their movements.  It incorporates strength, flexibility, balance, cardio and physical and mental stamina in one session. Baron Baptiste, the founder of this form of yoga, describes this practice as the perfect blend of sweat and serenity.

Vinyasa meaning, flow or to move without resistance, incorporates interval and cross-training exercises to challenge both the aerobic and anaerobic systems of the body. As your body adapts, it is important to vary the types, intensity and duration of the exercises. Power Vinyasa yoga incorporates regular sequences that become familiar to students, but incorporates variations to modify, intensify, or challenge the body by altering the pace or duration of poses, and the frequency that they are repeated.
