the power house
i fell in love with yoga in 2014 via the journey into power sequence. after years of gymnastics, dance, and the wackiest european circus adventures - i found myself at dancing mind yoga in falls church, va where i quickly established an almost daily hot power practice. the athleticism, sequencing, and freedom of expression sucked me in and i soon embarked on my 200-hr training in 2015. i knew my life would be geared toward sharing my love of movement and this practice was the perfect vessel. while i have since continued to stack trainings such as rocket, yin, ashtanga, vinyasa, pre-natal, and meditation - the power practice will always be my home.
"the power house" is my personal studio to pick apart, dig deep, manipulate, shake, stir, and redesign the power sequence through my own creative lenses.

a series of series
did you know that the JIP practice is divided into 11 series - each with their own name and specific energies? for this section, i have taken every individual series and designed each into a complete mini-practice. there's no need to be familiar with any series prior to practicing, perhaps just choose one whose title currently intrigues you and take it from there!
& done = in the middle column of classes in the table below, we visit one pose per 11 modules in the journey into power sequence. you'll encounter logical transitions in between postures, and the goal is to provide an abbreviated but complete power class.
DOWN = in the column on the left, we take the one & done sequence and modify it extensively. great for beginners and/or those new to a power practice! features the frequent use of 2 yoga blocks.
UP = in the column on the right, we do the opposite - take the same sequence from the one & done and amplify it allll the way UP! i *highly* recommend practicing its relative one & done before attempting!
