  • Strength n' Pow{h}er
  • Strength n’ pow{h}er is a intentional movement fusion experience rooted in balance and strength. The fifth class birthed within THE pow{h}er METHOD uses a weighted bar to enhance the strength component to further challenge participants. Training with added light weight has been proven to preserve muscle mass, assist with weight control, decrease injury risks and reduce incidence of osteoporosis.
    Strength n’ pow{h}er motivates and empowers the spirit, soul, and body for women of all ages with an emphasis on building strength inside and out. Movement married with weight synergistically recharges and refreshes our energy and the innate fearlessness within each one of us.

    Strength n’ pow{h}er provides form focused movement designed to educate our warriors in the safe and effective use of added weight resistance.
