Vinyasa

Vinyasa is a dynamic class where movements are linked to the breath and sequences of postures are often repeated. By connecting one posture to the next using the breath, this creates a state of "flow" - consistent movement.

This flow can be a beautiful dance of expression.

Because of the heat that is often generated in vinyasa, it is sometimes associated with Power Yoga, and although it does have a cardiovascular component due to the nature of the various shapes that are made, it doesn't necessarily mean every vinyasa is fast-paced. Vinyasa just refers to the movement; moving in and out of postures is the obvious one but even in stillness vinyasa is represented by the beat of your heart and inhale/exhale of your breath.

Vinyasa can be thought of as a complete class because of the range of poses practiced. Expect to build strength, flexibility, and balance. Open to all levels (including beginners) as modifications can be given. Reminder to discuss injuries or concerns with instructor prior to class.

*The term Vinyasa is derived from nyasa, meaning “to place,” and vi, meaning “in a special way.” This indicates that we are not just throwing our bodies around, but are bringing consciousness to each movement in each moment.
