What is Vinyasa Flow Yoga?

Vinyasa Flow Yoga is a rhythmic style of Yoga where there is a coordinated set of movements or poses synchronised with the breath.   As you move from one pose to the next you will often be told to either inhale or exhale as you go.   While you will find your body stretching as you go, Vinyasa Flow is as much about movement – some compare it to a dance – as it is about stretching.

Vinyasa yoga isn’t overly difficult.  Most people find the poses are fairly straight forward and after a while you begin to see the patterns of movement in the class which helps you to learn and develop.

There are a number of important terms that you may hear in a Vinyasa Flow Yoga session  – these include:

  • Pranayama – the breath which is the life force
  • Mudra – ritual gestures such as those demonstrated in the warrior poses
  • Asana – posture

Although one Vinyasa class may differ to the next, you may see many consistencies.  This can include the following sequence of movements:

  1. Mountain Pose (Tadasana),
  2. Standing Forward Bend (Uttanasana)
  3. Forward Lunge
  4. Downward Facing Dog (Adho Mukha Svanasana)
  5. Plank
  6. Low Plank (Chaturanga Dandasana)
  7. Cobra
  8. Upward Facing Dog (Urdhva Mukha Svanasana)

You may go through some or all parts of this sequence many times in the one session.

Who is suited to Vinyasa Flow Yoga?

Vinyasa Flow Yoga is suited to beginners and intermediate students.

The good thing about Vinyasa Flow Yoga is that it allows the teacher to adapt the class to suit its students.  If you are a new member to the class, Amy will always seek you out and chat to you before the class so she fully understands your experience and capability level and can make recommendations to make adjustment to the class easy for you.

There are a range of modifications that Amy references with each pose so you will always find there are easier options should you find any pose challenging.

No two classes will be exactly the same and so you will find a wide variety of movements that keep you energised and stimulated week by week.

Vinyasa Flow Yoga classes are suited to those who enjoy a light continuous movement that stretches your muscles and recharges and reenergises you.
