Often called “flow” yoga, the focus of Vinyasa yoga is on alignment of movement in which the breath, mind and body are consciously connected. Yoga sequences are practiced step by step, each breath and movement leading into the next. Moving from one posture to the next, poses gradually become more elaborate as they challenge your mind to focus on maintaining a comfortable breathing pattern.
Vinyasa yoga in which movement is synchronized to the breath is sometimes called flow yoga because of the smooth way the poses run together. Each pose is held for a few moments making Vinyasa a great cardio workout. The challenge of pace and pose, with rapid results in weight-loss and toning, continue to make Warm Vinyasa a studio favorite.
Yin Yoga focuses on the connective tissues of the body through postures that are held in stillness and mindful awareness for several minutes at a time. A perfect complement to more yang styles of exercise (such as flow yoga, running, skiing or biking), Yin Yoga addresses tightness and toxin buildup in the joints and connective tissue through poses that are equally challenging for the mind and body. The result is not only more lubricated and flexible joints, but also a greater sense of balance, peace, and calm. Props make the practice accessible to people of all abilities. This is an all levels class, appropriate for beginners and those new to yoga.
Mind-Body connection … this class focuses on working the core and the mind. Learn the skills to reach your fullest potential and change the way your mind thinks. Slowing down the flow and holding each asana (pose) longer works the muscles and core, sculpting the body and strengthening the mind. For the beginner and advanced yogi alike.
