Power Living uses MBO to manage all of our studios, if you are having issues with your MBO account, finding our studios, booking in classes or anything else below are some tips for you.
As a student, you will automatically get an account with us via MBO, however this is not your own personal account for the app – this is specific to the studio. To manage bookings etc via the app you will need to create an account and ensure that it’s verified with our studio. https://support.mindbody.io/s/article/Why-do-I-need-to-create-a-MINDBODY-login-when-I-already-have-an-account-at-my-favorite-studio

We are using Zoom Meetings
If you have a membership at either Manly, Neutral Bay, Bondi Beach or Fitzroy you all have access to the same live classes. Our 2 Adelaide studios are offering a different timetable to their students.
There are several factors that contribute to the quality of video and audio when using Zoom:
Yes, click on same link and wait to be admitted again.
Yes Q&A will be available for 15min after every class.
Yes all of our passes & membership prices have been adjusted down by 25% – if you were an existing direct debit member, this has been done automatically for you.
Level 1: establishes the foundations for a safe, lifelong practice. Slow enough to understand the basics of alignment and learn modifications, but still a strong class. You’ll also be introduced to some of Power Living’s core philosophical and traditional teachings. Ideal beginners’ yoga or for those wanting to refine their practice.
Level 2: open-level classes have become our ‘norm’. They’re challenging and all levels are welcome, but some experience of yoga is advised as there will be minimal modifications and education. Moving at a steady pace, these classes require a healthy, active body.
You can practice as often as you like, just remember to listen to your body. Some committed students practice 5-6 times per week, however the intensity will vary to suit the needs of their body on the day. Slowing down and listening to your body’s intuition is part of the yoga journey. If you’re cross-training with other sports then 2-3 times a week would likely be of great benefit.
We are offering vinyasa and yin classes, kids yoga and meditations, asana labs and free group meditations.
Always check with your doctor in advance and ensure it is safe for you to practice, avoid twists and modify poses as necessary.
Although yoga’s generally considered a fairly safe form of exercise, injuries can occur when students don’t take appropriate modifications or try and force their bodies into postures they’re not ready for. This is why it’s so important to honour what your body needs, every time you step on the mat. However, injuries can also be one of our best teachers as they force us to slow down, modify and listen to our bodies.
Here are some tips to prevent injuries:
Muscle Strains: A strain occurs when muscle tissue tears. If a muscle is powerfully contracted or stretched too far, an acute strain occurs. Chronic strains result from excess use over a period of time (with inadequate recovery). Hamstring strains are common in yoga, often occurring at the point where the hamstrings attach to the sitting bones, as a result of overstretching in forward bends. Other common muscle strains involve hip flexors (caused by deep lunges), neck muscles (from unsupported Shoulder Stand, Plough, Deaf Man’s Pose), and lower back muscles (from hyperflexion in standing or seated forward bends).
Tendonitis and Bursitis: These are overuse injuries. Tendonitis is inflammation or irritation of a tendon, and bursitis is inflammation of the bursae. Bursae are protective ‘cushions’, situated between moving structures such as bones, muscles and tendons. They let us move our joints easily, without friction.
Performing long holds in yoga poses such as Downward Facing Dog, Chaturanga and Side Plank without adequate strength or appropriate modifications can cause excess stress on bursae and tendons in the shoulders, elbows and wrists. This may exacerbate carpal tunnel syndrome, bursitis or tendonitis in these joints.
Ligaments and Cartilage: Students who are hypermobile, or those who hyperextend or flex their joints without adequate strength, can put additional stress on joint-stabilising ligaments and tendons without realising. This can cause joint inflammation or injury.
Knees, elbows and the spine are common problem areas. Hyperextension of the knee is often seen in straight leg poses such as balancing postures, Triangle Pose, standing and seated forward bends. Elbow hyperextension is often seen in Downward and Upward Facing Dog and Side Plank. Shoulder Stand, Plough, and forward bends place compression forces on the spine. Spinal discs can be damaged if an inappropriate level of spinal joint flexion or forced flexion occurs. Degenerative disease, pinched nerves or fractures can occur when the spine is hyperextended.
