Lyons Den Power Yoga

Roar like a lion or at least sweat like one, because this class is a serious workout!

Katie was subbing for Bethany Lyons (a.k.a. Head Lyoness) the day we showed up to Lyons Den in the Tribeca neighborhood of NYC. She had an amazing voice that projected loudly as she took complete control of the class. She was great and gave us a helluva workout.

Lyons Den Power Yoga is Manhattan’s only yoga studio dedicated to teaching Hot Power Vinyasa Yoga in the Baptiste Yoga™ Method. The mats are close together when the class is full, but feels surprisingly spacious. The room is heated to around 90 degrees. This external heating of the room is intended to allow students to quickly stoke their internal fires (tapas) for a loose, sweaty practice. And a sweaty practice it is.

And there is absolutely a feeling of courage and empowerment when you finish this class. The fact that we stuck with it, didn't give up and felt the intensity of this workout was definitely empowering.  One nice feature of this class was a personalized spotter – somebody who moved around the room and adjusted our positions. I appreciated the personalized attention and was mindful of the adjustments made. We moved rapidly through the poses which made the class move quickly. Many in front of us had long lean bodies and I wondered if they were professional dancers or just dedicated patrons of the Den.

Following the class, people moved briskly in the locker room and we were amazed that the showers became available so quickly. Everyone is on a schedule which enables you to fit in a class before work.

As we made our way uptown following the class, I resisted the urge to crawl along, and reminded myself to stand tall and proud. Cause I just came from the Den.
