Beginner Philly Power Yoga


This class is taught by:

Steve Gold

Owner and Director of Philly Power Yoga & Thrive Pilates

Gold is certified to teach “Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga” and continuously studies his craft for advanced techniques to share with his students and instructors. Philly Power Yoga has been teaching Gold’s signature yoga for 10 years, and has now expanded into a full-service facility with a variety of yoga, Pilates and fitness classes, as well as massage and acupuncture services.
 
Philly Power Yoga is not leisure yoga. It is tough, you will sweat. It was developed to identify and correct the pressures the Western world puts on the body. The practice isn’t a fad, it’s a proven lifestyle with the goal of making spiritual fitness an individual’s primary goal.
 
Gold takes pride in his instructor’s primary goal of connecting to students by sharing personal experiences in addition to poses, which allow students to reach spiritual fitness by reconnecting with their authentic self. He trains instructors who are honest, real, and accessible. He teaches that beginning with unhealthy baggage and habits are ok, simply be still in the moment no matter how painful and begin to reconnect with the real you.
 
Gold doesn’t limit his yoga teachings to his studio. His new non-profit, Project 4 Peace, takes his Power Yoga back to his roots in the inner city to teach youth yoga principles that strengthen confidence and self-worth. Gold acknowledges that his own self-value only comes from being in service for others. When not in the studio, Gold is spending time outdoors with his two kids.

Troy Jackson

Troy was looking for a positive change in his life when he found Philly Power Yoga and began training with Steve Gold. Through his daily practice on and off the mat, Troy created the positive change he sought. Through the tutelage of Steve, attendance at Baron Baptiste Level One Teacher Training, and various other workshops, Troy has deepened his knowledge of yoga and shares this with the Philly Power Yoga community. Troy invites students to find their own inner power through a vigorous class that will make them sweat and inspire change at the same time. After earning his Masters Degree in Social Work at Bryn Mawr College, Troy continues to inspire change within the community in his work as a licensed therapist in Philadelphia. 
 
“Troy brought me to the mat. He made me understand that the practice is about you and not anything or anyone else. Being in his class has changed my life. His guidance and caring is priceless.”

“Troy inspires his students with a challenging workout and compassionate approach. I always know I will leave Troy's class having strengthened and stretched my body and mind."
-Hally Bayer
 
“I have had the good fortune of having Troy as my Yoga instructor for some time now. Troy's teaching philosophy is based on two points. First, take your practice seriously but don't take yourself seriously. Secondly, the practice of Yoga can be a unique experience for all participants. As a result, Troy reaches the perfect balance in his teaching method: Classes are physically and mentally intense and challenging but are always in context of a very relaxed, positive, and comforting atmosphere. Furthermore, while Troy gently pushes students to their physical limit, he always stresses safety and encourages students to modify their poses whenever needed. As Troy likes to say (while all of us are sweating profusely on our mats!) "Even if you just come here and quietly meditate on your mat, you are practicing Yoga." There are other qualities Troy holds that are not as quantifiable as his high degree of professionalism and his deep knowledge of his craft - He's just a cool guy to be around that makes one feel comfortable practicing Yoga.”
-Max Fisher
