Vinyasa Yoga Flow

Vinyasa is a form of yoga that uses the breath to synchronize movement with the natural flow of the body. It can be practiced by both beginners and advanced. There are many stops that take place sequentially, without any interruption or break between them.

The term “vinyasa” comes from the Sanskrit words “nyasa” (to place) and “vi” (in a special way) and essentially means “to place something in a certain way”. In practice, this translates into a series of yoga positions (asana), in which we transition from one to another synchronizing breathing and movement.

Unlike more “static” yoga classes, where the point is to experience more of the asana itself, in a vinyasa class, transitions between positions are equally important and demanding in concentration.

Most dynamic, motor and “fast” yoga classes are considered vinyasa classes. A vinyasa class usually raises body temperature, adding an aerobic element to the practice that is not often found in traditional hatha yoga classes.

This variety and the constant alternation of positions keeps students’ interest alive, while the constant flow of movement “forces” them to be constantly consciously present in what is happening, as it happens.

Finally, it gives them the opportunity to better understand the mechanical part of their body functioning, exploring different perspectives in each lesson.
