Vinyasa Flow
1 hour with Kandace Stewart
All Levels Vinyasa Flow that allow teachers to creatively share their passion for yoga with you on your mat. A flow that unites the mind, body and spirit thru Breathing, Stretching, Endurance, Balance, and Relaxation providing practitioners of all levels an holistic and unique yoga experience. Vinyasa: Sanskrit for “to place in a special way”—like “the arrangement of notes in a raga, the steps along a path to the top of a mountain, or the linking of one asana {pose} to the next,” as yogini and author Shiva Rea has poetically put it. Breath-synchronized movement: one possible definition of vinyasa yoga. If you wrote out a sequence of poses, it might read: breathe in, upward-facing dog; breathe out, downward-facing dog; breathe in, look toward your hands; breathe out, step with your right foot between your hands. While there’s not necessarily a strict 1:1 breath-to-movement ratio, vinyasa-style classes do tend to hold fewer long poses than, say, hatha-style classes.
