Vinyasa Yoga is a practice that emerges from Hatha Yoga, the first being more dynamic and demanding than the latter. “Vi” means to go or to move. “Nyasa” means placing or planting. The union of these two words equals going through movement in coordination with the breath.
Sequences of postures are created, linking breath and movement harmoniously. Each inhalation and each exhalation is connected to a movement which gradually helps the student strengthen their muscles, increase focus and concentration, connect to the wisdom of their body and to calm the fluctuations of the mind. This class is open to all levels of participants that want to challenge themselves and, like in every class, postures and sequences can be adapted to the needs and limitations of each participant. In a way, this practice resembles a dance or a moving meditation that energizes the body, eliminates toxins and liberates any energy blockages located in the body or the internal organs.
