Why Baptiste power Yoga?

Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga stands for leadership, community, service, possibility and transformation…on and off the mat.

In 1940, Walt Baptiste and his son Baron founded Baptiste Yoga. The asana or physical parts of the practice are inspired by the teachings of Krishnamacharya and his students Iyengar and Desikachar, whom Baron Baptiste studied with personally from a young age. Baron took what he learned from these great eastern teachers and created a style of yoga that worked to empower, strengthen, and stretch the bodies and minds of modern westerners.
