The word “vinyasa” can be translated as “arranging something in a special way,” like yoga poses for example. In vinyasa yoga classes, students coordinate movement with breath to flow from one pose to the next. Ashtanga, Baptiste Yoga, Jivamukti, Power Yoga, and Prana Flow could all be considered vinyasa yoga. Vinyasa is also the term used to describe a specific sequence of poses (Chaturanga to Upward-Facing Dog to Downward-Facing Dog) commonly used throughout a vinyasa class.
In our vinyasa classes we put a lot of attention to alignment. Its actually a combination of Vinyasa (Ashtanga) yoga with Iyengar elements of alignment.
We believe that Vinyasa Yoga should be fluid in nature and not harsh or mechanical.
