The word vinyasa derives from the idea of artfully linking movement to breath. In these classes youíll work flowing sequences where the focus is on the connection of breath to movement, building heat from the inside to detox the organ systems, develop core stabilization and strength, and generate peace of mind through meditation and hard work. Class will be based around the sun salutation (Surya Namascar A and B) and often incorporated inversions and basic pranayama (breathing practices).
It is recommended to partake in a beginnerís workshop prior to vinyasa classes. See my Workshop page, under Yoga 101.
These classes are an amazing complement to the business of life, as well as the relaxing counterpart to a heavy vinyasa or athletic practice. With the focus on healing the body and mind, connecting to our inner voice and spirit, the body will be awakened by stretches as well as soothing passive poses (restorative and Yin) held for extended times.
A great introduction for those new to moving and breathing, as well as Type A personalities who need to unwind!
