Jerry LePore founded Powerflow Yoga in 2008 after discovering the healing and transformative effects of a consistent yoga practice. He started taking hot power vinyasa after completing his first round of treatment for Hairy Cell Leukemia, a type of treatable but recurring blood cancer. “It’s important to stay as mentally and physically strong as you can. Yoga has played a big part in that for me.” Powerflow Yoga provides a safe and inspired space for you to heal and grow in all areas of your life: physically, mentally, and spiritually.

Located at 1005 Washington St, Hatha Yoga takes place in a beautiful historic building, built over a century ago circa 1905. Hatha Yoga is a practice that combines stretching the body, regulating the breath, and focusing the mind in order to reduce stress, lower blood pressure, and improve heart function. Hatha Yoga is as simple to explain as ‘A…B...C'. A) Stretching One's body. B) Regulating One’s breath. C) Focusing One's mind. In fact, this class proceeds precisely in that order, and is guaranteed to calm your body and mind.
