Vinyasa Flow


This class is taught by:

Barb Owen-Boerger

Yoga has been whispering to Barb for years, each time speaking a different language. At first, the whisper was somewhat medical – a nagging back ache interfered with an active lifestyle. Later, the whisper became louder and somewhat urgent. This momma needed a break! Then, the voice was friendly, inviting, fun and encouraging. It may have even texted her a few times!!!
 
So, today the endlessly interruptible mother of two teenage boys looks forward to sharing the many forms yoga has taken to find its way into her life.
 
With a BA in Sport Management/Fitness Studies, Barb is known as an anatomy geek. “I am endlessly amazed at how our bodies work! When you can get down into the kinesiology of it all, it makes sense and visually explains the how/why of each asana”, she states, with shameless enthusiasm.
 
Barb loves half marathons, is a 3 time Tough Mudder finisher, HIIT workout fanatic and credits her yoga and workout gurus with keeping her injury free well into her 40’s.
 
Barb enjoys life with her husband and two sons. She seems to find lots of interesting things to occupy her creative and boredom-fearing brain.
 
Currently deep into her 200 hour Yoga Alliance yoga certification training under replenish owner, Christa Heibel, she invites anyone who is curious yet reluctant about yoga to hang out with her for a little while. She’s probably fluent in the yoga language whispering to you, too!
What Is Vinyasa Flow Yoga?

Vinyasa Definition
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 the smooth 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.
 
What To Expect From Our Vinyasa Flow 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 on the 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.
 
Is this Vinyasa Flow Class for You?
Vinyasa’s strength is in its diversity. There is no single philosophy, rulebook, or sequence that teachers must follow, so there is a lot of room for individual personalities and quirks to come through.
 
If you appreciate having things a little loose and unpredictable and like to keep moving, this style is definitely worth a try.
 
There are also more slower, gentler ways to do yoga, as you could try one of our Hatha Classes.
 
The Vinyasa Flow Class is considered a Walk-In Class, or can be scheduled ahead of time on this page directly below.
