Yoga Studio Review No. 2: Mark Blanchard Power Yoga

When I moved back to L.A. in 2007, I kept hearing about a style of yoga called “power yoga”.  I had always loved the deep stretching and meditative aspects of yoga, but was definitely looking for something more intense.   My best friend insisted that I come to her favorite studio in the valley to burn off some of the Yummys cupcakes calories we had consumed the night before.  We were running late, but she assured me we were fine, as Mark, the founder and teacher, was never on time.  And she was right.  He was fifteen minutes late, that day and every time thereafter.  However, she was also correct about the butt-kicking workout, which made it worth the wait.

One leaves Mark’s classes dripping with sweat, every muscle trembling, and feeling completely worked–which is one way of finding zen, right?  Being the jock that he is (former baseball player), his classes are more like a gymnastics session, with endlessly linked balancing poses, deep standing splits stretches, push-ups and ab work.  No music, no props.  In fact, Mark is the human prop and gives plenty of hands on adjustments, so if you don’t like to be touched, he might not be your guy.

There are two locations in L.A. : Studio City and Downtown.  http://www.markblanchardsyoga.com/contact-us.html
