What is Vinyasa Yoga?
Vinyasa is a sanskrit term meaning “arrange something in a certain way.” Add this word to yoga and the meaning is a set of poses in arranged in a sequence to open, strengthen, stretch, and move your body in a beneficial way.
A Vinyasa Flow then means that the class will consists of a series of poses that flow / transition from one to the next.
In life we do not typically do one thing. We bend, step, lift, twist, and other moving activities to accomplish our daily activities. Just getting into our car, carrying groceries into the house, making the bed, mowing the yard and gardening, golf, tennis, running, cross fit, water and snow skiing, or just playing with the kids has many actions; all of these require flexibility, balance, strength as well as mental clarity.
A “Vinyasa Flow” transitions the body through various basic movements. It enable the body to regain balance, strength, flexibility plus the benefit of developing mental clarity. The results enables us to enjoy and participate in our daily activities with more grace, ease, and confidence,
