Vinyasa Flow Yoga

Vinyasa or Vinyasa Flow Yoga is a highly popular form of yoga which serves as the backbone of many modern yoga styles. The practice of Vinyasa consists of a series of poses that flow from one to the next, with mindful attention placed on the synchrony between movement and breath. The continuous movement makes this style of yoga a particularly well-rounded physical exercise, with aerobic benefits as well as those of increased strength and flexibility. In addition, the practice of mindful intention and harnessing the calming power of breath teaches students to manage stress better in their daily lives.

What to expect

Vinyasa is a faster-paced yoga style that will keep you moving throughout the class. The synchrony between each movement and breath requires focus, makes this practice a workout for both the body and the mind.

Founder

Krishnamacharya, a world-famous Yoga teacher born in 1888 in India, developed Vinyasa Yoga to integrate the benefits of yoga asana (movement) with the benefits of controlled breathing.
