Our Philosophy

Our mission is to provide a safe and inclusive space to facilitate the growth and evolution of consciousness within our community. We aim to guide you into the fullest expression of your human potential through the practice of power yoga. 


What is Power Yoga?

Power Yoga is a dynamic, flowing yoga practice that links movement together with breath. This athletic style of yoga will get your heart pumping and your sweat pouring — all the while encouraging you to connect with something deeper than the physical.


The physical challenge of the practice serves as a training ground that prepares you to face deeper mental, emotional, and philosophical challenges off your mat and in your life. The aim of Power Yoga, ultimately, is to cultivate access to your own personal power and authenticity.

Is it hard work? You bet. Can you do it? Absolutely!


Power Yoga is for anybody - at any age, size, fitness level, or level of experience. This intuitive practice can be adapted and modified in infinite ways to meet your needs and be accessible to you, just as you are right now. 

The results will transform your life. Just show up, sweat, and watch the shift happen.

Core Values

Our Founder

Sam Newton-Whitaker

Sam experienced radical healing and transformation through the pathways and practices of power yoga. She’s been dedicated to sharing this practice ever since. 


After years of struggling with eating disorders, anxiety, and depression, Sam found herself wandering into a hot power yoga class in Southern California. That class powerfully altered the trajectory of her life.


Sam went on to study, work, and train in the fields of yoga, pilates, and personal training. She holds certifications in Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga, Baptiste Power Yoga, restorative yoga, paddleboard yoga, pilates, group exercise, anatomy and personal training.

The practice of power yoga helped Sam understand that health and happiness are hers to choose and cultivate NOW - from moment to moment. Her mission at inPOWER is to support you to do the same. She delivers a class that takes you beyond the physical, through the physical. Expect a challenging, thought-provoking sweat session that will help you shift your vision and wake up to new possibilities and pathways for yourself.

    Through the practices of self love, gratitude, meditation, journaling, and asana I have discovered my own super power strength — not only physically, but also mentally and energetically. I wake every day and do my best to practice and teach these principles by being a student and teacher of my own body, mind, spirit.

    I’ve been practicing yoga for over a decade and completed my teaching certification through inPower in 2020. Yoga inspires me to connect, share, support and give back to others. My intention in teaching is to lead from my heart, both on and off the mat. I am grateful to be a part of this community. 


  • Kayla Brennan


    I found inPower, which now feels like home, in 2017. I completed my yoga teacher training with inPower in January 2018 and it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made! Besides loving yoga I also love running, traveling, spending time with my family and friends, my dogs, and of course a good glass of wine!


  • Kevin Whitaker


    Professionally, I’m a psychic, medium, life coach, TV personality and sometimes-yoga-instructor. Personally, I’m a husband, father and all-around handyman. I’ve been a professional psychic medium for 30 years, and completed my yoga teacher training through inPower in 2016. 


  • Lauren Kalvaitis


    What started as solely a physical practice has developed into so much more. I’ve discovered so much physical, personal growth, and community connection both on and off my mat. Yoga has carried me through physical injuries, relationship changes, and career shifts. My intention as a teacher is to inspire awareness, acceptance, and growth.

  • Richard Desjardins


    Yoga, my number one choice to stay fit, has taught me to “be here now,” and fully enjoy each moment. With asana, meditation, and personal inquiry, I choose to give myself the best chance at success. My intention in teaching is to learn from and inspire my students with curiosity, passion, and the joy of being alive; all wrapped up into a huge smile.

  • Tia Teeft


    I joined InPower as part of the Energy Exchange program. I was pursuing a change, not knowing what I was looking for. On my mat, the movement of my body became a necessity, and I fell in love with a community. Off my mat, I work at an organic vegetable and flower farm, enjoy reading and researching about nature.
