Vinyasa ( translates to “flowing with breath”) is a dynamic style of Hatha yoga that joins physical postures, or asanas, with inhales and exhales, creating a steady internal rhythm for the practice. Our Flow classes are designed to cultivate heat in the body with creative sequences involving sun salutations, standing and seated postures, back bending, arm balancing, and a strong focus on the power of breath awareness. Flow yoga classes tend to be more vigorous and aerobic, and classes can have a variety of music and themes.
This class will flow slowly through sun salutations and postures designed to build internal heat slowly and gently. Meditation and Pranayama (breathwork) techniques are taught to promote relaxation. Class concludes with Restorative Yoga postures which settle the body and mind.

As the whole body rests and opens with long-held poses, the natural healing power of chi is used to rejuvenate and repair the area of focus.
