Playful Power Yoga

Advanced

Ron's playful style lends well to a power yoga class that borders on intermediate to advanced. The power of his imagery makes common poses, such as the warriors, balance poses and savasana, suddenly feel wonderfully new. Ron brings a dance-like flow to this class, so be ready for some unusual transitions.

A great and energetic class from Ron. I always enjoy his teaching style The music was distracting and did not seem to match the rhythm of the class. I would have preferred to only hear Ron's voice for this one.

I enjoyed this flow! I love the taking off the sweater movement and the brushing off at the end of Savasana. Thank you! I feel great and relaxed.

Nice way to start the day. I'm new to Ron's classes so I have to look more often, but I'm learning, I enjoy the sweater moves and the flow elements. Thank you.

Absolutely LOVE Ron's classes. I've always been intimidated by Power Yoga and anything labelled "advanced"... even though I've been practicing (usually daily) yoga for 25+ years. I didn't realize how far I could go into poses until I introduced Ron's playfulness ideas. So eye- and heart-opening!

Wow! I've never done a class quite like that! Thank you Ron. It is a challenge in itself to let go and be creative, and I think I need more of that. Loved it, thank you.

Love, love this! Ron's gift in this practice is the gentle yet powerful way he guides energy movement. First there is power-energy-movement, and the practice ends with feeling completely centered in personal power that the practice helps you find.

Love this practice! Enjoyed the graceful flowing movements of "taking off the sweater"; this movement felt beautiful and freeing. I also enjoyed the powerful poses you guided us through. Will return to this many times. Namaste'

Thank you Ron, I have been putting off trying this advanced class only to find it very doable with the occasional modification. I love the quirky style of this class and it left me feeling joyful and energized.

Beautiful practice. I enjoyed the flow and focus on gentle self-care. The transitions were smooth. Had a bit of a hard time following cues, but overall loved Ron's teaching style. Very fluid!

So great to practice with grace and flow and opening, lengthening visualizations. Loved the sequences and transitions, and the challenges - will keep me coming back. A beautiful fluid way of being in the Yoga.
Thanks Ron - will check out other ones of you too!
(always gravitating to the ones in nature - inspiring to go out there for Yoga again soon too).

I like Ron's energy. This is a creative and interesting flow. However, the cues are not very well executed. I found myself glancing up to look at the screen with every transition to figure out what was going on. I thought it made it more difficult to get into the flow and work on my breath. I also noticed that he did not perform some asanas on both sides, such as twists. This left me feeling unbalanced. I also think this class should be considered intermediate rather than advanced.

Shaking the hands in prayer down the body and brushing out the energy was a fantastic way to settle into svanasana - I will definitely be using these techniques in the future. Due to the minimal instruction at times, I had to look up quite a bit to figure out what was going on. This video is best is done more than once.

I loved the movements and the instructor's tone of voice. The occasional self care was just what I needed at that point to bring my attention inward. Beautiful practice. Thank you

I just did this class. It made me break into a sweat. I found some of the arm movements to be a bit confusing , especially the move called taking off the sweater.
But it made me challenge my hips and shoulders. I will do this class again when i run out of advanced classes. The transitions in this class were very challenging and very flow-vinyasa based.

I see it more of an intermediate than advanced. Perhaps reclassify?

I feel like I'm dancing when I take Ron's classes. Def think this is more intermediate, but it was enjoyable nonetheless.

Ron's style of yoga is very relaxed. This practice incorporates many different asanas, but I thought the transitions lacked fluidity. I think it would be helpful if the instructions were presented a breath or so ahead of the movement, as well as made more concise.

Additionally, I would not say that this practice is advanced; I would label it as intermediate.

Regardless, I am thankful for this offering, as well as the opportunity to further my practice. Thank you, Ron and DoYogaWithMe.

Ron has a very unique and refreshing style! He approaches yoga from a dancer's perspective, emphasizing fluidity, balance, alignment, and openness. I love his use of imagery throughout the practice. It stays with you and makes you more aware of your body. I'll be thinking differently the next time I'm taking off a sweater.

As always, Rpn's practices never feel like work but bring us back to childhood dance and play. I cannot do "advanced" yoga. I would say this was intermediate (with the exception of wheel). Always love Ron and this is my favorite since his very first video. Thank you!
