What is Vinyasa Yoga?
Vinyasa is the uninterrupted flow of one asana (posture) to the next. It is typically described as synchronizing movement with breath. Transitions during Vinyasa are done purposefully, steadily, and at a deliberate pace. Depending on the instructor, the pace may be slow or more vigorous.
What is the difference between Vinyasa and Hot Yoga?
The major differences between our 60-minute Hot Yoga and Vinyasa are the heat and the postures:
Hot Yoga is performed in a 105° Fahrenheit room, while Vinyasa can be done in either a hot or room temperature environment. All of our Vinyasa classes are done in a heated room set at a temperature of about 95° Fahrenheit.
Vinyasa flows from one posture to another while linking the breath to movement. Depending on the instructor, classes and postures may vary. With Hot Yoga there are no variations, meaning that the same 26 postures are taught in the same sequence each and every class.
Do you offer beginner yoga and advanced Vinyasa classes?
Similar to our Hot Yoga classes, all Vinyasa classes are appropriate for all levels ranging from beginner to advanced. The more that you attend class, the deeper you are able to get into the various postures therefore increasing the difficulty of your practice.
Remember to breathe! During physical exertion many tend to hold their breath, it is always important to always keep breathing even if it is just tiny sips of air.
Listen to your body! It is important to always respect your body and your abilities. This means that if something is too difficult, you should take care not to overexert yourself and risk injury.
It is not about perfection, rather about the intention! The hardest part of any Yoga practice is showing up to the studio. When you do show up, set your intention to work your hard.
