Vinyasa Yoga

Vinyasa is often called flow yoga. Like a moving meditation, this style of yoga is performed by linking together several postures and movements in relation to the breath.

Understanding Vinyasa Yoga

The variable nature of Vinyasa Yoga helps to develop a more balanced body as well as prevent repetitive motion injuries that can happen if you are always doing the same thing every day.

As a philosophy, Vinyasa recognizes the temporary nature of things.  We enter into a posture, are there for a while and then leave.

While Vinyasa dates back to the earliest period of yoga thousands of years ago.

Put all this together and Vinyasa, is a breath initiated practice, that connects every action of our life with the intention of moving towards what is sacred, or most important to us.
