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.

Lindsay Browning

Yoga Instructor

Yoga and it's principles have become a very important nurturing part of my life. I was given the opportunity in 2010 to practice vigorously and found that the ideals that yoga offered were what I had been missing and the methods of the practice were very useful in my day to day life. The first Power Yoga class I participated in was in Boston at a Baptiste studio in Cambridge. I felt an instant connection to the flow of the style and the challenges it presented to me.
 
Upon completing a series of studies in early 2011 with Philly Power Yoga's Steve Gold, I began to guide Vinyasa practices. I'm determined to continue my personal investigation of yoga and am happy to continue spreading the news about the healing benefits and transformations Yoga can provide.
 
Lindsay's background is in Contemporary Modern Dance and Theater. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from Radford University in Virginia in 2005. Shortly after completing her degree she moved to Philadelphia to begin creating and performing under the umbrella of it's movement arts community. She has a history with yoga through her dance education as well as a vast knowledge of the body and it's functions through her studies of the body and it's movement potential.

Ewa Zeljazkow

Yoga Instructor


Yoga found Ewa in 2001. The challenges she faced on her mat reflected very much on where she was in her life at the time.  Ewa realized how much of a positive impact yoga has on her everyday life , on and off the mat. She continually seeks to grow as a teacher and student of yoga. She decided to share her love for yoga by getting her Certification in Power Vinyasa and is E-RYT 200,YACEP  (Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher, Continuing Education Provider) Certified with Yoga Alliance.

Ewa encourages students to move towards their potential in the physical postures and guides students to understand that yoga is not just about the physical practice, but also about a commitment to a positive, life-altering experience. She hopes that students will find a sense of self-discovery, with a deeper aim of self-realization.
