Vinyasa Flow is a therapeutic yoga class, moving through yoga postures at a pace that allows you to feel more, enjoying the subtlety of the transitions and in-between moments. The focus may be on moving with what feels nicest for you, or moving entirely connected to the breath. Vinyasa Flow Yoga takes emphasis off accomplishing things and puts it on experiencing things.
Don’t worry, there is plenty of strength to find in softness, we just learn that there are other ways to move into this strength.
This class is the perfect antidote to a busy modern life, for injuries that require softness and connection rather than force, or to balance out high intensity/impact workout.
Vinyasa is often thought of as just one of many yoga types. Some people, however, see it as more essential to one’s practice. Without it, they feel the practitioner is merely doing stretches without great health benefits.
Regardless of your perspective, the term, vinyasa, has come to encompass a range of general and specific definitions. As a category of yoga, vinyasa includes, but is not limited to, Power yoga, Baptiste yoga, Ashtanga, Jivamukti, and Prana Flow. Because vinyasa practice puts a strong focus on sun salutations, most vinyasa classes will focus heavily on this sequence. In fact, “Take a vinyasa” or “Go through yourvinyasa” has become shorthand for completing a sequence of poses leading from the Sun Salutation, and including plank, chaturanga dandasana, upward-facing dog, and downward-facing dog.
The continuous movement of vinyasa reflects the impermanence of all forms and the necessity of accepting change to achieve balance and completeness.
