Fri*, 9/12, 6:00-7:15pm - Intro to Vinyasa Yoga

with Karen Sedlazek, RYT ($16 drop-in)

This class is designed for the beginner vinyasa yoga student. Vinyasa yoga combines breath and movement in unison for a focused flow. Vinyasa yoga focuses on moving through the poses mindfully and with grace, linking one pose to another, synchronizing movement with the breath at a moderate pace. Poses will include a variety of sequencing with emphasis on variations of sun salutations with the qualities of strength, balance, and flexibility weaved throughout. Students will be taught proper breathing techniques and movement alignment principles to ensure a safe and effective practice. Vinyasa yoga gives students the opportunity to explore stillness within motion, strength within ease, and meditation within action.
