About Vinyasa Flow Yoga
* Explore movement * Breath work (pranayama) * Meditation * Manage symptoms of stress, anxiety and depression *
Vinyasa Flow Yoga is a fantastic introduction either for students wishing to try yoga for the first time, or those that prefer a more restorative practice. The class is a steady pace offering students the opportunity to learn the fundamental alignment required for practicing safely but will also incorporate an element of play and the chance to enjoy full guided relaxation. The classes also work on how breath work (pranayama) and meditation techniques can support the physical practice of yoga, alongside managing the symptoms of stress, anxiety and depression. A new theme is introduced each week allowing students to explore twisting, forward/backward bending, core strength, neck and shoulder release and more.
Five elements of Vinyasa: * Breath * Bandhas "energy locks" * Drishti "gaze" * Vinyasa pose * Asana pose *
Students who are familiar with yoga will be able to progress deeper into asana, experiment with new sequences and focus on connecting their practice with breath work and/or personal intention. Classes look closely at the 5 elements of Vinyasa; Breath, Bandhas (“energy locks”), Drishti (gaze), Vinyasa and Asana (poses). This dynamic class will provide practitioners with an element of cardiovascular stimulation both warming the body and increasing muscle plasticity. Classes allow students to develop strength and flexibility through the asana practice. Additionally, end-of-class relaxation provides a space for students to put aside their daily anxieties and leave the studio feeling calm and revitalised.
