Power Yoga Sequence | Power Yoga Routine (Sadie Nardini)

This is a refreshing power yoga sequence that you can do anywhere as long as you have an internet connection. Adding a power yoga routine to your weight loss or overall fitness plan can be extremely beneficial for both your mind and your body. Yoga boosts your metabolism and helps you crave whole foods – at least it does for me.

I found this video (in 4 parts) on YouTube.  The instructor’s name is Sadie Nardini.  She lives in Brooklyn and here is her website.  Here’s the YouTube link (Part 1), and I also embedded the video below.  She titles the series “Weight Loss Yoga”.  I think that most people get into power yoga for the weight loss benefits, but then stick with it because of how it feels (freakin amazing).

Part 4

It was a great power yoga sequence – short, but invigorating.  Her voice is very nice to listen to, and she’s easy to follow.  This type of yoga is called Vinyasa.  It’s flow yoga.  You flow through “vinyasas”, which are like little dances (for example: start in plank pose, then lowering down, then up-dog, then down-dog). You hold the strength poses briefly to build long, lean muscle. This is the metabolism booster

Sadie likes to use “fists of fire“, which reminds me of the pilates term “breath of fire”.  “Fists of fire” are just extending your arms, then pulling in with fists, and repeating.  It keeps the heart rate up and makes it easier to hold the poses, in my opinion. Fists of fire give this power yoga routine an element of cardio (hence the name weight loss yoga).

The full sequence is about 36 minutes long, and it flew by when I did it.  I hope you enjoy!

  1. Hey Maggie,

    Thanks for this recommendation. I just did this routine this morning. It was the toughest one I have done so far (possibly because I was little sore from the NZ one last night). In some of her YouTube comments, Sadie asserts that doing this 3-4 times a week will turn anybody into a fitness monster, and I believe it.

    Did you do the handstand?

    Also, your blog is incredible. I sent it to my Mom who is a vegetarian, and she responded, “This is making me hungry! I’m going to the supermarket right now for ingredients!”

  2. OMG, I just did yoga for the first time yesterday! I immediately thought of you.

    IT’S HARD! My calf muscles are so sore today – but I will definitely do it again! Had no idea it could be such a great workout!

  3. Thanks for this!

    Excellent point about doing yoga for how it feels. Really, that’s what all forms of exercise should be about. The weight loss is a side effect of having fun with an activity that we really enjoy.

  4. Just did this whole series. Thanks for the link Maggie – I loved this!

    P.S. Just steamed a really crappy kabocha squash. It was so hard and not sweet at all. 🙁 I should have known by the color on the outside – it was really pale green instead of dark green like the others I have bought in the past. Bummer.

  5. it is easy to learn Yoga although it seems difficult at first try. I practice Yoga mainly for relaxation and for improving my blood circulation.

  6. I like yoga because it increases my strength and flexibility at the same time! I haven’t found any other types of exercise that do that very well. I like to do it by myself though because sometimes I get stuck or fall over and it’s embarrassing.

  7. Thank you for your article. But please consider an article about “quickest way to lose weight”. It’s an article that must be writen, so hopefully I’ll read something about it here in your blog.

  8. J’ai hâte d’essayer cette routine! Je suis une habituée du Power yoga j’ai un excellent coach mais je n’ai plus les moyen d’assister à ces séances! Bon matin à toutes!

  9. When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get three e-mails with
    the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service?
    Thanks!
