Open Level Vinyasa (South)

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. The basic components of a vinyasa class will be present – warm up, sun salutations, standing poses, inversions, back bends, forward folds, and a well-deserved savasana.

Our Open Level Class is for every practitioner regardless of experience or skill-level. This class is tailored to meet the ability of the class as a whole. Basic poses with more advanced options are offered as well as sequences that start slow and build to become more challenging. You can push the limits of your body while having fun. Because of the open structure of this class students are often asked if there are any poses, transitions or specific parts of the body they’d like to target during the practice. There will be opportunities to break down some of those trickier poses you’ve always wanted to try and a few minutes for any inversion of your choice. Come willing to try something new!

Not your stereotypical Yogi. People are often surprised when they find out that I practice Yoga. Born and raised in Key Largo and Miami. Played every organized sport I could in High School. Continued that trend playing College Football and Lacrosse at The Carnegie Mellon University while obtaining a BS in Electrical and Computer Engineering. I was the typical Fraternity/Football/Beer/Party College Kid. Came home to work with the family after graduating. Not loving the cold of Pittsburgh may have had a small part of that decision.

In 2013, I sought out Yoga to releive stress, and have been hooked ever since. I practice a little of everything including, but not limited to, Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Hatha, Gentle, Restorative, Aerial, and SUP. I completed my 200 hr YTT in 2015 at Key Largo Yoga under the guidance of Kathy Shirley.
