Vinyasa Yoga is a vigorous, dynamic style which links breath and movement through a sequence of postures that are linked by awareness, depth and meditative flow. Vinyasa means to flow, to stay awake, to be connected to the circular nature of things. In these classes teachers work creatively and follow the mood of the students to help determine the pace and structure of the class.
The practice allows for a personal journey through synchronized movement and breath as we come home on our mat. In order to bring attention to our practice a class begins by setting an intention. An intention, or sankalpa, is suggested by the instructor and encouraged to be interpreted to best suit ones own personal needs, either mental or physical. This short positive statement (sankalpa) can help guide you into a deeper practice and lead to your higher potential. In vinyasa we connect breath to movement and body to mind. Every class has a unique sequence.
Please arrive 10 minutes early to set up and prepare. Bring a towel and water.
