Vinyasa Yoga

What is it?

Following the teachings of Tirumalai Krishnamacharya, the Vinyasa concept means to place (the body) in a certain way. Unlike Hatha which holds the postures for a long time, Vinyasa seeks harmonic transitions linking the inhalation and exhalation to the movement. This generates more cardiovascular work, strengthens muscles, increases flexibility and helps to flush toxins from the body.

Vinyasa Yoga is a dynamic yoga style where the movement is synchronized with breathing to link the asanas (postures) of Hatha very precisely, balancing both strength and flexibility. With the fluidity of movement and breathing we guide body and mind on a fluid journey through a choreography of asanas that opens the door to a better physical, emotional and mental state. At the end of the class there is time to observe effect of the practice, delivering us to a state of relaxation and meditation.
