Hey everyone, I’m so excited to share this fun and challenging power yoga class with you today! This is a 35 minute yoga class working on the niyama of tapas which is about austerity, discipline and determination.
Tapas is about building heat in the body as a form of purification. For this class, we’ll be holding poses for a bit longer than you might be used to as a way to generate that heat and challenge ourselves physically and mentally. This is a great class to help you work through mental and emotional blocks and challenges.
The yamas and niyamas come from the 8 limbs of yoga as outlined by the sage Patanjali. If you’d like to learn more about this, try my Yama & Niyama online course: https://bit.ly/ywkyama
Rest assured there will be plenty of stretchy breaks throughout so that you can find your rhythm and care for yourself. It’s an intermediate full body yoga class with no props required.
Great practice in a different style. Feel invigorated and a great kickstart for my plans for better wellness and balance this fall. Thank you!.
Glad you enjoyed it!
So appreciate this, makes me appreciate my own determination to be strong and grow in my practice and yes, I would welcome more like this
Thank you. This was a great pick me up on a hot afternoon. Its a challe ge but in all the right ways..i love you invite us to be curious about our limits, not just to push it.
Amazing! Enjoy the rest of your day
I liked the slow flow to build heat and strength. Thank you!
Yay! So glad
This was a wonderful practice for strength. Please do more short versions of power yoga. Love it!
So glad you enjoyed
Loved it.. please do more like this.
This felt empowering and liberating. Thank you!
Liked this one, i weight lift too so i like the challenge. Yoga has been helping me stretch out and improve my core
Happy you liked it!!
Great class. Loved it
Definitely a challenge for me to hold a few of the poses. I had a lft wrist fracture 10 months ago. My lft side still hasn’t regained all strength back
If your wrist is still causing problems and pain, try doing side plank on that side on your forearm as well. You can use a block under the arm for extra height too
This was a wonderful practice! I was so excited when the notification came in. Definitely challenging but loved every minute. Thank you for everything you do! ❤️
So glad you were excited for it and enjoyed it
I loved it! Kease make more of these. I like power yogas and this was kinda different. I enjoyed it!
Amazing! So glad to hear
Maintain any Asana Gives me possibility to be more focused, it is like a meditation for me. Thank You so much ❤️
Exactly! A meditative challenge
Excellent practice! I just loved it! More of this please!! 🙏🙏🙏
Yay! Happy you loved it
Loved this class!!! I would appreciate more of these 30+ min classes with themes
Love it! Challenging, but soo good. Yes, please make more of them. Thanks so much, Kassandra 🙏
Challenging, but in a good way. Thank you.
Wow i needed that in so many ways! More please , and a titch longer😎
So glad to see all the enjoyment of this class!
This class is 🔥🔥🔥🔥 Feeling very accomplished after this one.. Thank you K 💜💜🌈🌈
Loved this one! Would love more like this!
I did this one yesterday and am feeling it too, which I love. This is a different type of flow and I appreciated the challenge. Thanks so much for always posting unique videos!
Loving the feedback this class is getting
I didn’t think I could last till the end. Thank you for this practice and the encouragement along the way
I absolutely loved this❤️
Wonderful! Im actually stronger than i thought i was! Thank you for challenging me mentally and physically. ❤️
I really liked this because i could really focus on form and in doing so was mentally very calming. X
I loved it! Please make more like this one.
This was an instant favorite, more like this please
Due to the various connents I could not wait until tomorrow in order to do this practice as part of the nonthly calendar😁 Such an awesome class in all ways. As I am doing Kundalini yoga regularly and have a weekly bones building yoga class I am used to held positions longer. It is so great for the mind and the body (calming and challenging). Yes, please more of it. But I also love your minimal cues practices, vin to yin classes, yin yoga morning and evening and of course your morning yoga practices……🤗❤️
It’s really getting great response! Hope you enjoyed it a second time on the 1st? Or did you switch to yin?
Maybe at times a bit boring in some poses but a wonderful practice and LOVE your connections between yoga poses and real life challenges ❤️
🙏 A new favourite 💚
I’ve now done this two days in a row! I LOVE IT! 😍 I’m a huge fan of yin and long holds, but always love a good vinyasa flow that strengthens—this mixes both! It’s meditative AND strengthening. More, please and THANK YOU!!! Yay! 🎉 Plus, I learned about Tapas. I’m so grateful. Thank you, Kassandra! 💕
So glad you enjoyed it! Twice!
getting back to the mat – this was perfect
Loved it! I like my butt kicked now and then. I’d love more of these!
Loved this practice!
Great class~ thanks
I also loved this class!💕💕
Loved it more please
Loved this too! A longer class like this would be ideal! Thank you
Yes, Please do more power yoga.
Excellent class! More please.
Excellant class! Loved it. Longer class😍
I loved this class. It was nice to settle into these more powerful poses. I didn’t find it particularly challenging, it was a nice comfortable level. Which I was surprised by! So; proud of my body ^_^
Well done! Congrats
Loved it! More please 🙏
I’ve been working through a back issue and feel like I’m on the mend and this class proved to me that I am definitely feeling better and stronger. Thank you for pushing me a bit, this class will definitely get a “favorites” star! ⭐️
Thank you, Kassandra! This was a wonderful class, good intensity, poses durations were great. It was so nice to come back to the mat after a little hiatus. I actually didn’t think I’d do so well but when the hearts in it, it seems to make us accomplish way more! You definitely have my support if you want to make more videos like this! Thank you again for sharing your creativity with us 💖🙏🏻
I loved this class!! Definitely challenging, but I held most of the poses for longer than I thought I would! I like the challenging poses held for slightly longer 👍🏻💜 Definitely up for more like this please! Thank you! 🧘🏼♀️🙏💜
Wonderful! Pat yourself on the back
I loved this class! While holding the poses for longer was definitely a challenge, I also found it relaxing in a way – easier to focus and turn inward. I’d love to see more classes like this 💕
Dear Kassandra, this is a wonderful class – I really loved it! I like holding the poses for longer and concentrating on the posture and the sensations that come up when going deeper into the pose. To me this is very meditative and grounding and somehow also very caring. I truly appreciate this type of classes and I am very grateful for this one. Thank you so much!
Oh thank you for this lovely review
I really loved this, what a great start to my week, thanks!
I really loved this one and would like more like this. Even a little bit longer would be great. I feel so good after this one. Thank you so much!
Enjoyed the holds. Really used the breath. Enjoyed the long relax at the end. Felt fab afterwards.
This is really great and because it is slow, I was even able to go through this class with some bruised ribs. It is easy to adjust to very slow transitions. Please more of those strengthening 30 min classes. Thanks so much 🙂
Oh! Be easy on yourself, but so glad this worked for you
I love this class! Please more of this or even a longer one🤗❤️
I feel like I got out the kinks, and the achy bits. Now I feel much more stretched out and aligned. I like this practice, and hope to do more like it! Thanks, Kassandra 🦋
I love this practice. Just long enough to really feel it and short enough to fit into my day❣️
LoVe! ❤️ thank you for this.
Loved this! Thank you as always for sharing your gifts! More 25 to 35 minute classes please! Namaste.
Great practice! Somewhat challenging but really clarifying at the end. More please!
More of these please for 20 mins and 40 mins
Loved this pace and even the shaking in the holds, it went by quickly. I’d love to see more like this.
I am so very grateful that you take your time to make these videos Kassandra. You have the perfect balance: The sequences are challenging, informative, very cosy and not too chatty. Thank you so much. 😊♥️🙏
Strength, determination, resilience and inner strength. These are the words that come to mind after this Power Yoga practice. I’m energised and exhausted at the same time. Day 2 of Everything in 30 October challenge
So good, thank you 🙏
Another outside flow in the Great British weather. Sunshine and bird song. Perfect. Thank you Kassandra
Dear Kassandra, thank you for your wonderful content and practices. It is a joy to practice with you, to do your flows and to watch your vlogs 😊😊 I am really appreciative of what you do, your choices and stories you share give me hope. xx 😘😘
Thanks for being along for the ride
This was good. Challenging but quite doable.
More Yama and Niyama classes, please! LOVE IT! 😍🙏
Thank you, this is rhe second time that i have done this class, and this time it really clicked for me. 🙏🏻
This is a wonderful class for an afternoon in october, challenging but also very satisfying, now I am focused and happy!
So good. I have chosen this for my Monday morning, that’s when I need some extra energy. It worked 🙂 Thanks so much!
It was not easy, but it felt great afterwards!! Thank you K!!!
My mind challenged me first by saying ‘oh gosh, I’m not going to like this type of class’. Despite this I moved forward, and by the end decided it’s one of my new favorites! Thank you!
Well done! Enjoy the rest of your day
Challenging for sure! Bur in a good way! Thank you!
I love that! Always up for a good challenge
Loved it. Thank you!
I’m a new member this week but not new to yoga. The yoga I have been doing is mostly gentle. I didn’t know if I was going to be able to do this but wanted to give it a try. I want to get more strength training in my practice. Yes it was challenging but if it wasn’t then it wouldn’t be beneficial. There was only one pose i couldn’t do,the modified chair pose so j did the traditional pose. That was enough for me. This is going in my favourites.
Great one to put in your favourites then and work towards! Welcome to the app
It was challenging for sure, but I remembered what you said about this helping to mentally prepare us for other challenges. The deep breathing helped. Loved it. Felt so good at the end!
Challenging but loved it.
Challenging and beautifull ❤️ thank you so much
Very grateful for all the practices and the style and diversity you teach.
It’s important to mix it up
Challenging but could feel the progress in my flexibility as the practice progressed. Would love more of these type of videos for improving strength!
Such a wonderful feeling
This was a great start to my day focussed my determination. Feeling 👍 more of the same please and also loving the minimal queues sessions too x
Went better than i thought it would! Feel fabulous!
Excellent practice! Really enjoyed it. More of these please!

Loved this! Great level and really enjoyed the endurance challenges
I really enjoyed this class, Thank you 🙏
That was great! Yes please to more of these power ones! It’s a nice balance of workout and peace. Thank you ❤️
I loved this class! I would love more like it, too, if you ever have the time 😊
Much needed energy on a dark day like today. I love the 30min power practises! Thanks so much, Kassandra 🙂
Perfect! You’re welcome
Wow! Really tried to stay in the thoughts of how am I when things are challenging. Oft times it gets intense, sometimes complain, also focus on the countdown for breaths. This was a challenge!
In a good way!
Way to stick with it and stay in it
Good for body and mind. Thank you Kassandra
Phenominal exactly what i needed after a few hightened days. Feeling grounded and powerful

Great set of yoga positions! Definitely worth making more of those. I have been practising mainly 15 min morning yoga for the last 2-3 years, but I was still able to do most of the exercises here. Feeling good!
Great practice. Thanks, Kassandra. Alan.
I enjoyed this class even though it was challenging. I was able to hold the balance pose and complete all of the other poses.
Exactly what I needed and not too hard. Love the concept of this March Matness double video’s! Following you from Belgium 🙂

One of my favorite classes so far! Very challenging. I’m trying to build more core strength so this was exactly what I was hoping for 🙂
