What is Vinyasa?
VINYASA is a flowing, dynamic yoga practice that cultivates presence by connecting movement with breath. Most classes feature several elements of traditional Ashtanga yoga— vigorous sun salutations, standing poses, preparation for arm balances & backbends, with focus on gaze point guided by a steady breath.
This class is based on the Ashtanga Primary series of postures. The sequences integrate movement and breath while holding postures for a specific amount of time. The class is aimed at seasoned beginners and regular practitioners. Within the class twists, backbends and approachable inversions will be introduced. Be prepared to explore both beginning and intermediate poses. Modifications are given allowing the students to practice according to their needs.
This vigorously paced class offers dynamic transitions through poses, explores more complex movements and sequences including twists, backbends; options for inversions and arm balances layered over solid foundations. The sequences are planned for building more strength, balance, and flexibility. The class has more rigorous/athletic sequencing and is geared toward experienced practitioners. Students should have at least 6 months experience before choosing to attend this class.
