Kate Doran instructs the following:
  • Power Basics
  • This class will teach you the fundamental poses and breathing techniques used in all of our power yoga classes. If you are new to the practice, looking to fine-tune some of your poses, and/or you want a slower paced flow - this is a great class for you! This class is heated to 90 degrees. 

  • Power Up/Power Down
  • In this class you will find stillness in power, then experience the power in stillness. There will be an equal blend of flow and deep stretching. This class is heated.

  • 40 Day Transform and Renew
  • Join us on a 40 Day journey into yoga, meditation, conscious eating and self-inquiry. This program, based upon Baron Baptiste's 40 Days to a Personal Revolution, will take new students as well as long-time yoga practitioners to a new level. You will develop a daily yoga and meditation practice. Through conscious eating, you'll explore how foods affect your body and your attitude. Together we'll engage in journaling and other exercises to peel back the layers and begin to see our own true nature.
    Practice: Attend yoga classes 3-6 days/week (or do podcasts at home).

    Meditation: Start with 5 minutes a day and build up to 30 minutes by the end of the program. Online Podcasts will be available to help guide you through the process.

    Weekly Meetings: We will gather together to practice, meditate, journal, check-in, and receive personal and group support during the program. Mondays 7:30 PM-8:30 PM.

    Food Cleanse: Build and maintain a new dietary awareness, learn how foods affect you mind and body, and participate in a mini-cleanse.

    Cost: $175 before March 20th, $225 after. 
    The program fee includes 40 days of unlimited yoga classes, a 40 Day Workbook, weekly podcasts to support your yoga and meditation practices, and 6 weekly meetings. 
    ** current unlimited pass holders may pay $100 to participate in the program **
    The book 40 Days to a Personal Revolution is available for purchase at SPY.

    This program is limited to 30 students.

    Cancellation Policy:
    No refunds. We will issue a store credit if you notify us in writing/email at least 24 hours before the the first meeting.

  • Power Hour
  • In just one hour you will stretch your muscles, build strength, find your balance, open your hips, get upside down and enjoy some stillness. You will leave feeling refreshed and invigorated. This class is suitable for all levels - from raw beginners to experienced yogis. This class is heated to 90 degrees.

  • Free Meditation
  • Please join us for 15 minutes of stillness and meditation.

  • Gentle Power (No Heat)
  • This class is designed to move and stretch your body at a slower pace. If you are looking for a class without any jumping or fancy arm balances, this is the class for you. We do not heat the room during this practice.

  • SPY Yoga Teacher Training Info Session
  • What does it take to be a great yoga teacher? It's not flexibility, perfect poses, or fancy Sanskrit terminology.

    What makes a great yoga teacher is LOVE for the practice. What our yoga teacher training programs will do is help you tap into your ability to powerfully SHARE YOUR LOVE with others.

    Savannah Power Yoga's unique 100, 200, and 300 Hour training programs are limited to 16 students to make sure each and every student is mentored and coached both during and after the program.

    Come in for a FREE Power Hour at 8:15am Friday morning and then join the SPY teacher training faculty for an overview of the programs and a chance to ask questions.

    Our next training program begins June 9th.
