Yoga is ultimately the journey into truth. Power yoga is not about hardness, gripping, or extravagance, but having the power to surrender to yourself and the space around you. I think of it as the strength within to try again and again when failing, and the intelligence within to listen with compassion in a non reactive manner even when emotions may be stirring up anger, fear or jealousy. Power is about having a choice and being aware of how we treat our environment, the tone of voice we use, how we are feeding our souls, and the words we choose. As I write this, I recall one of my favorite action heroes was He-Man. As he reached to the heavens with his arms high above his head, he shouted, ” I have the Power”. Next time you are feeling small, contracted, or disembodied, surrender to yourself at the moment, pray for strength, and use this mantra….. ” I have the Power”.
