Vinyasa Flow Yoga is a style of yoga that links breath with movement in an effort to unite body and mind in a flowing state of joyful presence. For the most part, is based off of the original & ancient power yoga - Ashtanga Vinyasa - which links together poses with vinyasas (plank → chaturanga → up dog → down dog). Ashtanga Yoga, founded by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, is directly linked to the father of Yoga- Krishnamacharya- who taught Jois. In this workshop, we seek to learn the roots of vinyasa flow practice and diving deeper in to the art of flowing. Not only will we be refining our alignment, learning modifications & exercises to sustain your vinyasa practice for life, but we will also be learning a bit of the history behind the practice.
Vinyasa yoga is very popular at the moment but it is also the branch of yoga where people are most commonly injured. Refining your vinyasa alignment is the key to safe practice and being a lifelong practitioner. By taking this workshop, you’ll learn to introduce power and length to your practice. You'll learn how to build the strength to lower from plank all the way to the floor with control, how to protect your low back in upward facing dog and many more alignment "tricks". All of those things there’s never enough time for in a drop-in class! And if you’re new to yoga, there’s no better way to get started than to learn proper form!
