Enjoy the wonderful flow of vinyasa practice! Learn to play with different postures, progressions, and breathing, while working through the ujjayi breath. Vinyasa classes start with warm up and progress to standing series, floor series, inversions, and cool down. Vinyasa practice is a great way to increase strength and flexibility, while enjoying the mindfulness practice of yoga. Each posture is generally held for five full breaths.
Beginner: students will work through foundational postures and sequences such as sun salutations and related variations (surya namaskara), downward dog (arda mukta savasana), warrior (virabhadrasana), tree (vriksasana), one legged pigeon (eka pada rajakapotasana), seated forward fold (paschimottanasana), leg bends, back bends, and introduction to inversions. All students will learn on ways to activate the lower pelvic floor to support stability, strength, and balance throughout the practice.
Intermediate: students will work on endurance, staying in flow for longer, as well as intermediate postures such as half moon (ardha chandrasana), monkey (hanumanasana), crow (bakasana), and forearm stand (pincha mayurasana) and other inversions, while taking a deeper focus into the breath and transitions.
Advanced: advanced students will start to work lifts and transitions from poses into vinyasa sequences, such as downward facing dog jump to crow, to headstand, pop to handstand, back to crow, to four limbed staff pose (arda mukta savasana to bakasana to adho mukha vrksasana to bakasana to chaturanga dandasana).
