Vinyasa Flow Yoga is a style of Hatha yoga that is a dynamic, flowing practice, incorporating breath work to both ease and deepen the movements. Vinyasa Flow Yoga links poses together in a mindful way, sequencing with a purpose and best preparing the body for what lies ahead. Yoga is an activity that is generally accessible to everyone. Vinyasa Flow Yoga practices involve bearing weight on the hands and wrists and also moving from a standing position to supine and and inverted positions (such as down dog). Modifications and props can assist in any challenges in these areas.
Yoga offers both a physical challenge and the unique opportunity to calm the mind while the body is hard at work. The “mental vacation” students experience can arguably be as addictive as the way muscles and joints feel after practice. If you have ever thought “I’m not flexible enough to do yoga” please know that you are not alone in this mis-identification of yoga prerequisites. Yoga is about strength and balance, and increased flexibility is a wonderful benefit but certainly not something you need to have mastered before you begin your yoga journey.
