Yoga:  Vinyasa (Flow) Classes

Welcome to healing and connection.  By committing to your yoga practice you will notice an increased sense of presence, wellness, and mindfulness - as calm infuses into your life on so many levels.

A translation of the word “vinyasa” is often stated as “arranging something in a special way,” like yoga poses for example. Vinyasa yoga classes involve students coordinating movement with breath to flow from one pose to the next.  Many students awaken their strength, energy, and flexibility in a fun atmosphere in a vinyasa yoga class.

Ready to regain your flexibility and feel and be stronger? A great class is built around listening to your body, and honoring the messages that is sends.  No expectations, just surrender!

We believe that every practitioner has his or her own valid reason to step on the mat, and we respect each person's individual experience.  We encourage you to adjust or modify your practice as you see fit.
