In Ron's first class, he shows you why so many students love his style. He's a dancer, performer and massage practitioner, and all of these skills are expressed in his classes. This class is fun, vigorous and a beautiful progression into some very difficult standing balance postures. You will hear Ron mention Mula Bandha, which is a pelvic floor contraction. If you're unfamiliar with this, check out our Core Activation: Pelvic Floor video tutorial.

Equipment: None
Style: Vinyasa Yoga


Ankles nice and warm

What a difference it makes in balance poses when plenty of time is spent warming up the ankles. Great way to enter Warrior 3 by noticing the placement of the foot when stepping; I love these simple tricks to learning a pose better :) Thanks for including a link to this class in the blog entry for Standing Balance Poses; it's a nice discovery. Thanks!

Excellent building up...

...of balance, focus, and strength. Love the fluidity and inner body awareness you model, Ron, and that this and other of your classes generate! It only takes 1 hr and 11 min to be fully regenerated and ready from the core for what's to come.
Bring on more classes, Ron!
In gratitude!

So good!

I loved this class. The moment by moment awareness of the body, the visual cues, helped so much to really stay present and to keep balance. Thank you!

I think this class was misnamed. It did not feel in any way like a power yoga class. It was slow slow slow - which some people may want, but I was looking for a power yoga class!

Yes, I guess it depends on how you define 'power'. You're right, typically power classes move at a quicker pace, so in that respect it doesn't quite meet the criteria.

I wore these few practices out during post op and radiation for breast cancer, I even got my Radiation Oncologist to watch you and he thought your practice was perfect! I went through breast cancer treatment and found your video on youtube. I have tried others and always come back to yours on this page . So sad there are only these few
I hope to see more of you Ron! If not I will keep cycling though these until I know them by heart thanks again

I have now done Ron Stewarts videos at least 3 times apiece and really appreciate his practice. I found him on a rainy day, on Youtube and it was such a nice practice it lead me to this site and that lead me to other practices with other instructors and really I keep coming back to Ron thanks so much and hope to see more of you

Simply gorgeous! It is amazing how close I feel to Ron while following his class. It is as if he knew the exact words at the right time to make me surrender, lose any resistance and enjoy. Thanks!!
