Do you even lift, yogi?

Yoga + Weights. I heard the buzz around a brand new class to Y1.  I saw people leaving Studio B with weights in their hands. I couldn’t help but be intrigued. Yoga is practiced at the studio and weights are used at the gym, right? I’ve put those two forms of movement and workouts in separate categories… until now.  Enter Power Fusion. A beautiful blend of yoga and weights married together in a 60 minute class. I’ve been to the class and even spoke with the creator herself. If you’re like me, and wondering what it’s all about, here’s the breakdown.

SO, WHAT IS IT?

Let’s break it down a little. The word ‘fusion’ can be defined as the process of joining two or more things together to form a single entity.  Which is exactly why the title fits this class perfectly.

Life Uplifted! ... and BALANCED

Balance. Equilibrium. Effort vs. Ease.  I’m sure you’ve heard these words multiple times in our studios.  And do you really know what they’re all about?

Restoration. Self-care. Rejuvenation. TREAT YO’SELF.  You know what I’m referring to, right?

Am I right?  For some reason, when our brain sees a plateful of things to do, self-care seems to get pushed off that plate until it no longer is apart of our day (or week, or dare I say MONTH).

How often have you actually written down in your journal or created an event on your google calendar marked, SELF CARE? For me, it is rare. I will schedule work events, yoga events, home events, even dog events, and self care is seldom prioritized.  So I must ask the question, why do we so often give to other beings and things, and scarcely give time to restore ourselves?
