"Vinyasa is derived from the Sanskrit term nyasa, which means "to place," and the prefix vi, "in a special way"— as in the arrangement of notes in a raga, the steps along a path to the top of a mountain, or the linking of one asana to the next. In the yoga world the most common understanding of vinyasa is as a flowing sequence of specific asanas coordinated with the movements of the breath" - Shiva Rea 2017
Join me as we delve into the history of Vinyasa Yoga and how the co-ordination of movement and breath can spill off the mat into daily life.
Session 1 February 6th - we discuss the history of the practice, the importance of breath, and break down common Vinyasa poses including Chaturanga Dandasana.
Session 2 February 13th - we discuss how we can bring the flow of breath into everyday life, practicing leading with the body instead of the mind and build a strong Vinyasa flow that you can take home and practice daily.
