Level: Gentle to Moderate, some experience with yoga postures is recommended
Vinyasa yoga is a general term that describes a style of yoga that links movement to breath. The breath acts as an anchor to the movement as you to flow from one pose to the next, moving with inhalations and exhalations. As one becomes more practiced, the flow can feel like a dance, and the mind stills as the breath moves the body in movements of expansion and contraction.
There are as many different styles of Vinyasa as there are teachers, but keeping with our Gentle Place philosophy, our teachers always offer modifications to account for students’ different levels of experience and capabilities. Props, assists, and an encouragement to listen to your own body’s wisdom, are tools we use to help you find your own inner yoga experience.
This is class is a more gentle style of Vinyasa, and includes flow, balance, strength and breathing techniques. It is designed to give some challenge to students, relieve stress and deepen the mind/body connection. Focus is on proper alignment, use of props, and modifications to accommodate individual practices.
Benefits of Vinyasa Yoga include improved strength, balance and range of motion, improved respiration, calming of the mind, increased body/mind awareness, and an overall sense of well-being.
If you are new to yoga, or have been we recommend starting with our Beginner’s or Hatha Yoga classes to familiarize yourself with the different yoga postures and safe body alignment.Reserve a Space
