Vinyasa Flow, likened to a dynamic dance, is a practice where postures or asanas are connected through the breath for a transformative and balancing effect. Classes build heat, endurance, flexibility and strength. Vinyasa classes are more vigorous than a Hatha yoga class, and they can sometimes have a fun play on them, like in our Yoga Belly Dance Fusion class.
The word Vinyasa means to build upon or link together. Our Vinyasa Yoga classes offer an equal challenge of endurance, flexibility and strength. Vinyasa allows you to truly experience the effects of dynamic alignment and connection to the breath. Vinyasa practice is interwoven with wisdom, poetry and music to inspire a balance between physical, energetic, mental, intuitive, and pure bliss states of consciousness. This class is a vigorous flow, and some experience with yoga may be helpful but is not required. The room may be heated to approximately 75 degrees at the discretion of the instructor.
The relaxation techniques, breathing exercises, stretches and poses of yoga can help lessen chronic pain, such as lower back pain, arthritis, and headaches. Practicing yoga can also help lower blood pressure, reduce insomnia, increase flexibility and strength, and improve metabolism. In addition to the physical benefits, yoga has the ability to help manage stress and the devastating effects it can have on the body and mind. Yoga can help you clear your mind and reach a more positive outlook on life.
