Be Well with Vinyasa Yoga

For the month of September, which is National yoga Month, we will be exploring each of our 4 styles of yoga. All our classes offer the basic tenets of yoga which is breath, poses and the invitation to be present. There are 88 classic poses in all of yoga and there are said to be 88,000 variations on those poses within the different styles. So please enjoy this exploration.

This week we are looking at Vinyasa yoga, which is the most popular style of yoga in the US right now. Vinyasa is a good match to the American body, mind and lifestyle, because it offers movement. It is a good way to meet your body and your mind where and how they are-which is active- and to use the movement, the flow, of the yoga to begin to lead you inward, the ultimate purpose of all yoga.

Vinyasa yoga often includes repeated flow sequences. These dynamic series, synchronizing breath and movement, are great for toning your body and for building core strength and aligned posture. Each month there is a 'pose of the month' which is broken down and built up over the course of the classes that month so that you are able to track your progress.

Vinyasa yoga is vigorous and will definitely give you a workout, while building strength, flexibility, and endurance. You will be challenged, but compassionately so.

How do you know if Vinyasa yoga is for you? There's only one way- take at least 3 classes. If you want to go back and do more, then it's a fit.
