VINYASA

Building skill in breathing exercises (pranayama) and postures (asana) and linking these two together through movement will be the focus of the Tuesday evening Vinyasa class.  Vinyasa is an important practice in any form of yoga, where movement, breath and visual focus are coordinated to catch the attention of the mind and to move vital energy throughout the body.  This class will focus on developing connection to our breath & from there, how going deeply into breath can help us to listen to our physical body, psyche & spirit.
