What Is 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 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.
