Yoga: What’s Vinyasa

Vinyasa Flow is the practice of being present to the beauty of each moment.

Guided by the inflow and outflow of breath, we travel mindfully, consciously,

uniting breath and movement through a series of poses staying absolutely present

to the sensations that arise.  It’s a juicy, feel good, meditation-in-motion practice

meant to bring peace of mind, clarity, balance.

What is Yoga?

 Yoga is a Sanskrit word that means “to yoke” or “union, connection or relationship.”

Dating back more than 5000 years  by the ancient sages of India, and codified around

200 BC by the Sage Patanjali and modified through the generations.

Through the process of yoga, we connect mind, breath, body and spirit into wholeness

cultivating a higher level of being, or consciousness.

 

Asana: Physical postures to build strength and flexibility so energy can flow freely.

Pranayama: Breath practice to cleanse and strengthen and balance the nervous system and increase your vital energy.

Meditation: Learning  to focus, concentrate and quiet the mind.

Spiritual Fulfillment: The increased self-awareness you develop from practicing yoga allows you

to connect with your inner spirit and follow its guidance.

 

Benefits of Yoga Practice:

Physically, yoga can lengthen and restore suppleness to your spine; allow joints to open; muscles to strengthen, stretch and untangle; and improve fitness, balance and endurance.

Psychologically, yoga can relieve stress; open deeply held blocks; create a sense of inner calm, relaxation and well-being.

Spiritually, yoga facilitates deep mindfulness and meditation, which can lead to a connection to the higher aspects of self

Classical yoga also provides good common sense guidelines for living a healthier, happier life.  It includes social ethics, yamas,  to live in harmony with others, and personal ethics,  niyamas , to live a balanced life.
