5 Reasons to Try Power Life Yoga Barre Fitness Now

Fitness
Mindbody Community

Power Life Yoga Barre Fitness. The name truly says it all–Power Life offers a wide range of classes to suit everyone from the first-time yogi to the seasoned athlete. That's why we're excited to go live with them on our IGTV (keep an eye on our Instagram @mindbody for the date)!
 

Here are the top 5 reasons you should tune in to Power Life on our IGTV—and head into their studios as soon as they reopen: 
  

1.     There’s a workout for everybody and every body! 

Power Life is rooted in the principals of power yoga, so you can expect your breath to take center stage. And, let’s be honest, who couldn’t use a reminder to consciously breathe every once in a while? But they have an extensive product offering of 7 different class formats to meet a wide range of fitness goals. Classes vary from power vinyasa, to yin, to yoga sculpt, to F.I.T. (functional interval training), so there’s truly something for everyone. No matter what class you take, you’re sure to leave feeling better about your day than when you started, says student Eric B. 


2.     You’ll work up a sweat and torch calories. 

Heat plays a huge role in Power Life’s identity. The majority of their classes are taught in a heated or semi-heated environment, so no matter which one you take you’ll definitely break a sweat. Of course, there are some class formats that include traditional cardio moves. (Who doesn’t love a few burpees now and then?!) But the heated rooms ensure your heart rate stays elevated even in classes that are less intense.

3.     You’ll be part of a community.

Starting a new workout routine or shaking up an old one is stressful enough without having to worry about fitting into some sort of exclusive club. Power Life prides itself on putting people first. “From the first time I entered Power Life, I have felt accepted and supported,” says longtime student Matthew R. At Power Life, you’re more than just a body on a mat in a class. You matter. You can always expect a kind smile and a warm welcome every time you step foot into a Power Life studio (did we mention there are 8 between Des Moines, IA and Kansas City, MO?) or tune in virtually. Power Life’s teachers are encouraged to not only know their students by name but to develop real, lasting relationships outside the studio, too. 


4.     You’ll have tons of fun!

Being quiet is so not Power Life’s style! “People are always hanging out before and after class,” says student Michelle P., “the [other students and teachers] are what make every class so much fun!” You can always expect an amazing playlist and plenty of opportunities to interact with both your neighbors and your teacher.

5.     You’ll leave each class feeling inspired.

“The inspirational teachers make me feel energized and peaceful after every class,” says Amanda L. Power Life prides itself on employing some of the best teachers in the industry. No matter where you are on your fitness journey, you can always count on a sweat session at Power Life to offer a message that is timely, relatable and encouraging. Power Life’s tagline, Find Your Fire, is about a whole lot more than just working up a sweat in their heated studios. They hope the time spent on their mats helps students ignite a spark within that inspires them to reach for their very best lives.

Black-owned Beauty and Wellness Businesses to Know

February is Black History Month—a celebration of the achievements and contributions of African Americans in society.  As the beauty and wellness industry becomes a more welcoming and inclusive space for all, we are taking this opportunity to continue to shine a light on the gap of inclusivity and diversity in our industry, and take action to promote, empower, and honor the Black community that shapes and grows wellness.  

While the beauty industry is making improvements—it's important to showcase and support Black businesses and the creatives in this space every day. To honor them, we're shouting out some of our favorite Black-owned beauty and wellness businesses to support. 

1. Beauty Bin 

Beauty Bin is a full-service day spa and dry bar located in Asheville, NC. With a focus on inclusivity for people of all backgrounds, genders, and races, their MO is to match the outer beauty of every client to their inner beauty. From eyelash extensions and hydrafacials to waxing and massage, Beauty Bin is a one-stop-shop for all the spa services.  
 

2. KIKA Stretch Studio  

The KIKA Method® is a gentle assisted stretching process that loosens up tight muscles freeing your body from pain and stress. By practicing this method, clients can experience decreased muscle tension, increased energy, enhanced flexibility, a substantial reduction in stress, improved posture and relaxation, and increased mental clarity. While its headquarters is located in Las Vegas, NV, they have multiple locations sprinkled throughout the US, including Atlanta, New York City, and Dallas—just to name a few.

3. Kimberly Coleman Salon 

At Kimberly Coleman Salon, their philosophy begins with promoting healthy tresses, elegant sets, unique accouterments, perfect pampering of hands and feet, and precision cuts. Known for working with models and celebrities, they fully appreciate and celebrate the diversity of their clientele which also includes super moms and warrior dads. 

4. Pressed Roots 

Pressed Roots was developed with the simple concept in mind—that everyone deserves access to easy, and quality hair care. What started as a single pop-up shop in Boston, grew to a multi-city pop-up tour, and is now slated to be the largest national hair salon franchise specializing in the care and styling of highly textured hair, they launched their first flagship location in Dallas, TX.  

5. SW3AT  

Jersey City resident, Alyza Brevard-Rodriguez started SW3AT. The company began as a fitness apparel line in 2015 but evolved into a sanctuary catered to health and wellness now known as SW3AT Sauna Studio—the first infrared sauna studio in Jersey City. The healing power of infrared heat therapy is a phenomenal option for holistic health proven to strengthen the immune system and provide relief from joint stiffness and muscle pain. It is also supportive of any fitness program as it aids in weight loss (you can torch up to 900 calories in a 45-minute session) while also detoxifying your body from some of the most harmful toxins. 

6. The TEN Nail Bar 

Kelli Coleman and Anika Jackson opened The TEN Nail Bar in Detroit to address a void in their city. They saw a need for a quality, modern nail bar that could also serve as a fun social space for Detroit’s residents and professionals. They designed the TEN to provide their clients with a #Perfect10 experience—where you can relax, enjoy music, a drink, your friends, a clean and precise manicure, and a much-needed break from all your hectic days. 

7. Bettye O Day Spa 

Located in the beautiful downtown Hyde Park Chicago area, Bettye O Day Spa specializes in first-class treatments. They aim to nurture and relax each of their clients with individualized and innovative therapeutic techniques. From body wraps and massages to facials and hydrotherapy, this day spa promises to be a safe place for healing to occur.
