Vinyasa Yoga focuses on aligning breathing and movement to achieve an active meditative state. The practice allows you to cultivate balance, flexibility and endurance.
The classes typically include sun salutations, standing poses, balancing postures, seated and reclining poses, and backbends. We emphasise correct alignment and how to move in and out of postures safely, in connection with the breathing techniques. These classes can be challenging and make you sweat. However, the class will be tailor made and adjusted to your body, your level of practice and geared to providing all you wish to learn.
