Hour Of Power

"It's meditation in motion," says Kristi Combs of Tyler. "Once you learn to leave your ego outside with your shoes--there's no competition. It's that persons journey on their mat."

Combs calls Yoga a "shift in perception". She been teaching Yoga for three year to folks like Amelia Junghans, "I come in, take a deep breath and it's all about me for one hour."

It's an age old practice, ""It's foreign, it's from India", says Combs. But, it's gaining modern day attention according to Nancy Washburn who's been in yoga classes for 9 months. "Physically, it's addicting," She says. "After you've missed a class for a week or two, you feel a little more tight, tense and stressed."

Based on breathing and postures and focus--it's stretching that makes you sweat. The rewards are long, lean muscles. "Not big and bulky," says Amelia. "They're pretty."

But the technique goes beyond toning and strengthening. Standing postures correct and strengthen the spine. Twists massage the internal organs. Forward bends lower blood pressure.
