About Our Studio

Omaha Power Yoga exists to help people human better. We look forward to having you practice with us.

Why Omaha Power Yoga?

“If you want to walk quickly, walk alone. If you want to walk far, walk in company.”
Strengthening a healthy heart, mind and body is powerful and requires effort. You don’t have to do it alone!

OUR CLASSES have a relaxed paced to encourage deep breaths, exploration of sensation, self-awareness and non-competitiveness.

OUR STAFF is committed to skillful thoughts, words, and actions, and sharing our experiences to empower and encourage others.

OUR SPACE is clean, quiet, uplifting and free from distraction.

OUR COMMUNITY is welcoming, supportive and light-hearted.

What makes us tick?

There are no mirrors in our studio. It’s not about being flexible or skinny, what gear you have or what your poses look like. Strong muscles & supreme balance won’t improve your relationships. It’s about setting your ego aside and re-inhabiting yourself so you can notice how the body and mind respond to experiences. With practice you can lessen reactivity and find ease amidst effort.

About Our Practice

Focus is on developing strength, stamina, and flexibility of mind as much as body. Pace of practice is conducive to a moving meditation. Emphasis is placed on breath and self-awareness. Temperature in classes range from 77-82. Sweating will result from your effort and engagement, not high heat & humidity.

Our Mantra

I am open and receptive.

I choose to see myself and others with divine perspective.

I will not pick up what is not mine, and I will not give a way what is.

I will not make assumptions, and I will not take things personally.

This requires awareness, acceptance and skill.

When I choose unskillfully, I will acknowledge, smile to soften and try again.

Life gives us opportunities to feel every possible feeling. It flows from rewarding to challenging, from frightening to thrilling. The high or low we experience in this moment is temporary. How we react feeds the experience that follows. When we lessen our reactivity, we lessen our strain and stress, and our health improves.

Your ability to notice and regulate your reactions – not the ability to stand on your hands, balance on one leg or put a foot behind your head – is key to elevating your quality of life. A consistent and solid yoga practice draws out your virtues and changes your presence. Power Yoga asks you to pay attention; to be willing to watch yourself; to accept, love and learn from what you discover so you can live bigger. It’s not easy – it’s empowering. Its most potent effects come gradually over time.

We all have our work to do. No one can do it for us, but we don’t have to do it alone. OPY is a safe space full of amazingly strong and resilient people…doing their own work, together. I will never tire of hearing students say “I love this place, there’s just something different about it!”

WE LOVE OUR STUDENTS and are committed to their growth!

Anything that delivers profound results, takes real work.
Do the work. Move forward. Don’t quit. Live your full potential!

I hope to see you soon. Peace,

Suzanne DeJong
Owner, Omaha Power Yoga
