Vinyasa Level 1

The word Vinyasa means the connection of breath to movement. Thus in Vinyasa yoga all movements are synchronized with the breath, creating a practice that is both dynamic and flowing.

Modifications are provided to make this class accessible to all.

Vinyasa Flow Level 1/3

The word Vinyasa means the connection of breath to movement. Thus in Vinyasa yoga all movements are synchronized with the breath, creating a practice that is both dynamic and flowing. The asanas, or postures, are derived from the Ashtanga system. The difference between the two styles is that in Ashtanga yoga one performs the same asanas in the same sequence every time, while in Vinyasa yoga one has more freedom to improvise sequences of asanas. A moderately paced class, combining vinyasa flow with high intensity movement and music. Perfect for men and women seeking a challenging and invigorating workout, excellent cross training for strength, endurance and flexibility. This is an ALL levels class. There will always be modifications offered as well as more advanced poses. PLEASE feel free to attend and listen to your body!
