What is vinyasa yoga?
Vinyasa yoga is a dynamic, movement-oriented yoga practice emphasizing the connection between mind, body and breath. Like other forms of yoga asana, regular vinyasa practice functions to prepare the body and mind for the deeper yogic practice of meditation.
What does a typical class look like?
In vinyasa yoga, no two classes are ever truly the same, but each practice will have the following basic components:
- Centering (including intention setting and breath work)
- A thorough warm up sequence
- Standing flow
- Balancing postures
- Seated sequence postures
- Back bends
- Closing meditation
While the order/flow of practice varies, classes are sequenced to help ensure everyone has a fulfilling and safe practice.
Who can practice vinyasa yoga?
Anyone with an open heart and willingness to learn.
What do I need for class?
If you are practicing with Imke at The Silo Workshop or Idylwild Yoga & Healing Arts, all you you need to bring is an open heart and a genuine willingness to learn. Be sure to wear comfortable clothing that allows you to move with ease.
