VINYASA fLOW YOGA
A Bit about Vinyasa Flow Yoga
Vinyasa yoga, in which movement is synchronized to the breath, is a term that covers a broad range of yoga classes. This style is sometimes also called flow yoga,because of thesmooth way that the poses run together and become like a dance. The breath acts as an anchor to the movement as you to flow from one pose to the next in time with an inhale or an exhale.
The literal translation of Vinyasa from Sanskrit is “connection,” In terms of yoga asana (postures), we can interpret this as a connection between movement and breath.
A cat-cow stretch is an example of a very simple Vinyasa because the spine is arched on an inhale and rounded on an exhale. A sun salutation sequence is an example of a more complex Vinyasa. Each movement in the series is done in time with an inhalation or an exhalation.
What to Expect From a Vinyasa Class
This style allows for a lot of variety, but will almost always include sun salutations. Expect movement, not just stretching. Whether the class is fast or slow, includes inversions, or is very alignment-oriented will depend onthe individual teacher and the particular style in which he or she is trained. Some classes include some warm up stretches at the beginning while others launch straight into standing poses. Some very popular yoga styles, including Ashtanga, Power Yoga, Jivamukti, and CorePower make use of the Vinyasa method.
If a class is simply identified as Vinyasa it may make use of aspects of any number of traditions. The one thing you can be sure if is the flow between poses. The rest is up to the teacher.
What To Bring?
It is advisable to bring your own mat especially if you are hoping to turn up every week otherwise a large towel will be fine to start off with. Warm active wear is also advisable during winter to keep the body warm during the yoga class.
Who Can Participate?
Classes will be structured at a beginner’s level for all those who are new to yoga and as we establish a committed group of yogis who are here every week we will slowing build the class up to an intermediate level to keep the class challenging.
