Founder of Baptiste Power Vinyasa Institute Baron Baptiste has changed how the west practices yoga.  The power of the practice is Baron’s authenticity that lands with people from all backgrounds.  Yogis cannot get enough of this practice which blends asana, meditation, and personal inquiry.  The Journey into Power asana sequence is a blend of rigorous physical practice and true north alignment.  Baptiste meditation grounds us in the physical realm, creates space, and possibility for every student.  Through personal inquiry Baron inspires students to shift their vision, creating insight around patterns and stories that deplete human vitality.   He is the internationally renowned best-selling author of Journey into Power, 40 Days to Personal Revolution, My Daddy Is a Pretzel, Being of Power and many yoga videos.  He leads yoga teacher trainings, transformational personal growth workshops, and speaking engagements all over the world.  In 2010 Baron co-founded Africa Yoga Project with Paige Elenson.  The Africa Yoga project creates yoga teacher training programs in Nairobi, Kenya, one of the largest and most impoverished cities in the world.  Baron and the Baptiste community have created an ever expanding network of yogis that move beyond the mat, inspire greatness, and lead change every day.  Earth to Yogis, this is it – Baron Baptiste.

Book Review by Desirae Pierce

Feeling stuck in life? Read this book now.

In Being of Power, Baron Baptiste delivers nine in-depth practices that deliver results for living life. Baron is a transformative yoga teacher and proliferate author. These nine practices are accessible for any person yogi or not. Baron vividly shares from his heart and generously gives tools that he uses to generate the “power of connection.”

I read his first book Journey Into Power over 8 years ago and have revisited it at least 10 times since. With each exploration, I experienced a deeper level of self-understanding, and with Being of Power, this holds true as well. Each practice builds upon one another and creates a pathway to understanding limited thought patterns and beliefs. Baron’s nine practices are concise, easy to follow and simply work. His first practice, “Be a Yes,” showed me where I was a “no” in connection to the world. I realized that my own blind spots where disconnecting from the results I wanted. Once I put Baron’s practices in action, I accessed the evolution for which I was seeking.

I highly recommend Being of Power and his nine universal practices for anyone feeling stuck in life and looking to access more power. Ready to live life fully, buy this book.
