Yoga has long been touted for a wide variety of benefits from stress relief and anxiety reduction to increased flexibility and improved balance. Techno yoga has the added advantage of providing a cardio workout and, of course, a jammin’ playlist.
“If you have ever wanted to experience yoga in a truly different way, this is the class for you,” Powers said. “If you are not afraid to sweat and walk away knowing that you are stronger than you thought you were, you will love this class. You will leave feeling energized, rejuvenated and positively radiant.”

While the dance-inducing tunes and upbeat pace will definitely make you break a sweat, many of the traditional benefits of yoga remain.
“Don’t be fooled, while this is going to be heavy on the movement and heart-pounding sounds, it is going to be just as spiritual,” Powers said. “Come with an ‘I can’ attitude and leave with an ‘I did’ attitude.”
While there are no other Citilites Unwind yoga events slated at this time, there will likely be several more in the near future according to Schoeffler-Warren.
“These events are always popular, we’ve had to turn people away,” she said. “So, as space and time allows, we will definitely have more.”
