WHAT IT IS

Vinyasa (pronounced "vin-yah-sah") is used to describe both a method of yoga and specific sequence of and transition between postures. It is a Sanskrit word that essentially translates as “to place in a special or sacred way”, which speaks to the intentional flow of movements that comprise and define a complete Vinyasa Yoga practice. Born from Ashtanga Yoga, Vinyasa differs in its variation of sequences from class to class.

 

WHAT TO EXPECT

The dynamic series of movements in Vinyasa Yoga are intelligently designed and guided by breath, flowing fluidly and progressively from one to the next. No two classes are necessarily the same. The interconnectedness of your breath cycles and physical movement inherently commands mindfulness, with focus that will keep you present. This breath-movement correlation also helps set the pace of Vinyasa Yoga, often somewhere between Hatha and Power Yoga. Depending on level, it is usually moderate to faster-paced. Your teacher will give you cues for situating your body throughout your practice, as well as inhalation and exhalation timing and patterns to synergize with your movement.

 

BENEFITS

Yogis of all levels who seek variety in their practice and are looking to gain strength, flexibility and reinvigoration of mind and spirit may find joy in Vinyasa Yoga. And, anyone seeking a smooth, continuous practice that invigorates the body and mind will find much to gain from a Vinyasa Yoga practice. The emphasis on integrity of the breath and proper form and alignment can be attained through individual modifications or variations to make your practice both accessible and appropriately challenging for you.

“In the practice of Yoga one can emphasize the body, the mind or the self and hence the effort can never be fruitless.” – Sri Tirumalai Krishnamacharya
