“Progressive Power Yoga® is an intensely rewarding and upbeat workout
that embraces the purest form of yoga,” says 25-year yoga veteran Mark
Blanchard. “There are no levels, props, or music to this practice. We
simply perform by listening to the sound of nature and our own breath.”

Mark Blanchard’s Progressive Power Yoga® workouts are suitable for
students who are beginners as wells as for those who consider
themselves to be advanced. Mark urges those of all fitness levels to
practice the workouts at their own individual pace. “This is yoga
practice, not yoga perfect,” shares Blanchard. “When you arrive fresh
at your mat every day and do not come with expectations, you will find
your true yogic being. I did not create these workouts for my students
to breeze through. They will challenge you. But beginners will
appreciate that I produce workouts with students of all skill levels so
the beginners will always have someone to watch with whom they can
identify. You truly progress at your own level on your own timetable.”
