Vinyasa Flow All Levels
Class length: typically 75-90 minutes
Focus: Give students (new and experienced) an opportunity to practice with other students of all different levels, deepening everyone’s knowledge of the various stages (“kramas”) available for each asana (posture), as well as the different options for each connecting vinyasa or surya/chandra namaskar (“sun/moon salutation”). More complex, but still approachable, asana are introduced from the balancing, backbending and inversion asana families. A great class for those with less time, who still wish to have an invigorating practice and to continue to deepen their asana knowledge.
Pace: more vinyasas, pace picks up
Level of teacher instruction: Still detailed, but basic knowledge of breath technique, bandhas (energetic locks) and basic sun/moon salutes and standing postures is assumed.
General description of typical class: A fun and invigorating yoga class, based on linking movement with breath. An energizing flow infused with namaskar (salutations), standing postures and some of the more basic arm balances, inversions and backbends. The teachers keep these classes lively with music and new and interesting postures; no two classes are the same! Basic yoga knowledge is recommended for a more enjoyable experience, but all kramas (stages of postures) are explained so that all levels feel welcome.
