Vinyasa 1-2 (North)

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.

This class is a step above our Level 1 practice.  You’ll see a wider array of poses, a slightly more challenging sequence and opportunities to move deeper into the poses and your practice.

Temperature: Warm

Level: Beginner to Intermediate

Jenny was first introduced to yoga when she attended a class at the local gym. She looked at yoga as a method to improved flexibility in her workouts, and continued attending yoga classes often. After her deployment to Afghanistan she joined a local studio in Georgia and began to explore the more meditative practices of yoga, the health benefits her body and mind received was an awakening from the anxiety she had begun to feel. When she began her transition from the Active Army in July of 2016 she was excited to attend yoga teacher training in Santa Cruz with Mark Stephens, immersing herself in learning and earning her 200 hour certification with Yoga Alliance. Outside of yoga she spends her time outdoors enjoying running, biking, and swimming. She and her husband are both avid divers and spend much of their free time together diving the coral reefs of the Keys.
