BASICS OF VINYASA
Vinyasa means to flow from one pose to another in a sequence of 2 or 20 poses. This Basics of Vinyasa class will focus on the basics to set you up in the poses safely. Expect to learn alignment and how to flow seamlessly from one pose to another.
Vinyasa is open to a more intermediate level and to all bodies. This class will focus on the Vinyasa practice of linking breath and movement while flowing from one pose to the next. We will get to know our own unique body through a physical flow. A great space for intermediates to learn technique, along with modifications, and for seasoned practitioners to challenge themselves as we focus on strength & energy combined with balance & mindfulness. Be prepared for a grounding yet energetic practice that challenges both the mind and body.
This class will focus on the building blocks of Vinyasa Yoga: linking breath with continuous, flowing movement. A great class for beginners or intermediate students looking to go back to the basics, we will breakdown poses, and learn correct alignment and breathing cues so that students become more confident in continuous movement and in modifying poses for personal practice. Pranayama to begin, an energetic flow practice in the middle, and restorative, calming techniques to wind down at the end of the day.
