Vinyasa means "to place in a special way," by making the action of your breath encourage movement. It is sometimes referred to as a "Flow," which means poses are linked together in sequences. It promotes muscle tone and flexibility of the joints, increases cardiovascular and respiratory strength while clearing the body of toxins, leaving you feeling calm and centered.

It's a dynamic class and if you have never taken a Vinyasa class before we recommend you have a few foundational classes under your belt. Our vinyasa classes are sprinkled about the week so feel free to check out our schedule for the next class! We hope to see you in a class soon!
