I think you will find my class challenging but fun, incorporating fast paced Vinyasa flow style with upbeat music. Vinyasa is a style of yoga characterized by stringing postures together so that you move from one to another, seamlessly, using breath. Commonly referred to as “flow” yoga, my classes move quickly but I always encourage students to stop and explore where and when they need to. Only you know your limits and class is meant to explore those. My Vinyasa style classes offer a variety of postures and no two classes are ever alike. No matter your age, expertise or fitness level, Yoga can be for everyone. My classes offer a judgement free space where we are truly here to explore and grow; no false pretenses allowed!
Vinyasa is fun and Yoga is a great way to strengthen the and body and improve overall health. With the flowing movements and great music, my classes provide a great work out. . In Vinyasa Flow we will move from asana to asana, connecting every pose with our breath. I will be there to guide you through the flow so poses run smoothly together.
If you are looking for private yoga lessons or a group yoga to celebrate an occasion like a bachelorette or bridal party, we can arrange that too. I can teach on the beach or at your house – and am always open to ideas and suggestions (like paddleboard yoga!)
A few tips before class:
You might consider coming to yoga class with an empty stomach. Yoga is full bending, twisting, lengthening, stretching, and strength moves.
Please let me know if you have any health concerns or issues. If you have a bad back or a sprained ankle, or any issues at all, just let me know before class and I will be happy to make modifications or advise when you might be better off to skip a certain pose that could make your condition worse.
BENEFITS OF YOGA
Created in India over 5,000 years ago Yoga delivers many psychological and physical benefits. Perhaps the most frequently mentioned psychological benefit of yoga is an improved ability to manage stress. Yoga diminishes levels of anxiety, depression, and lethargy and promotes achieving balance and happiness. Yoga encourages your body to attain regularity, relief from little aches and pains, the ability to sleep deep and wake refreshed. Yoga assists all your muscles and bones and organs to operate at their maximum potential. Yoga has the amazing power to relax and refresh you, soothe your nerves, calm your mind, and improve your stamina.
As Lao Tzu said, “the journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.” I hope you will take that step and join our tribe for your next yoga practice. See you on your mat!
What Is Vinyasa Yoga?
Vinyasa yoga, or “flow yoga” or “power yoga” as it’s sometimes called, is an energetic style of yoga in which the individual movements continuously move from one to another. The steps and phases begin with your own breath, synchronizing with the movements. This gives the effect of a full body flow as well as a focused element, allowing the practitioner to center on what’s most important to them.
Many vinyasa yoga students find this method internally soothing and outwardly refreshing, but these aren’t the only benefits you’ll find with vinyasa yoga. The synchronized breathing and continuous movement makes this an excellent cardio workout. It builds your strength and flexibility the more you practice and even helps instill healthy breathing habits that you can carry outside of your yoga class. With unique movements and a great soundtrack, vinyasa yoga is more than just a way to relieve stress — it can even be fun.
The breathing method used here is called Ujjayi breathing, a method intended to both soothe you and warm the body. Start by breathing in deeply. As one movement flows into the next, exhale through the nose. It’s this breathing method as well as the continuous movement that makes vinyasa yoga characteristic not only for its energy but for its heat.
Vinyasa yoga relies on finding beauty and peace in the fact that everything is temporary. The yoga poses are not fixed form, but rather transitional, formed and then let go in one cohesive but beautiful flow. Because there are so many postures to choose from, leading to such a different combination of flows, no vinyasa yoga class is the same. Students looking for a little more variety and invigoration than the typical yoga class offers find it in vinyasa yoga. It’s easy to understand why the very name vinyasa means “variation within prescribed parameters.”
In this vinyasa yoga class, you’ll be challenged in ways that fixed form yoga may no longer challenge you. You know your body’s limits better than anyone else. Vinyasa yoga relies on that and encourages you to push those limits, gradually becoming stronger and more flexible. But that’s not to say that beginners can’t jump in with vinyasa yoga. The diverse nature of vinyasa yoga means that you can find a class that’s perfect for your starting place.
