Vinyasa is a style of Yoga with an emphasis on breathing and healthy alignment in the poses. Moving at a faster tempo, this class builds stamina and strength while developing grace and ﬂexibility. This class allows those with a regular practice to experience a more intense Vinyasa Yoga and introduces more challenging asanas. Expect sun salutations, strong balancing poses, hip openers and inversions and arm balances. Our aim is to be able to move into and out of each asana with balance, a quiet mind and a ﬁrm connection to the earth, as well as actively seeking the relationship between movement and breath. By turning up the intensity, we can explore the place where our breath, mind and movement come together. Although the focus is not on tying ourselves into Yogic knots, classes are likely to include some more advanced asanas, especially inversions.
This advanced class is suitable if you have a regular Vinyasa practice (2 or more classes per week for at least 6 months); if you are a complete beginner we suggest you start with one of the other Vinyasa classes we offer. If you are unsure whether this is the right class for you, please chat to one of our Vinyasa teachers.
Vinyasa (advanced) classes are 105 minutes long. Classes are held at room temperature. Music is played in these classes.
