  • Vinyasa Fundamentals – Wednesday 27th October –  1-3:30pm

Vinyasa or (flow yoga) has fast become a very popular style of yoga, one of the reasons for this is that Vinyasa gives students exactly what they want… a fast, challenging and sweaty yoga experience. This is mostly what comes to mind when people think of Vinyasa yoga. If working up a sweat is the only objective on our mind when we practice we are truly missing the essence of what Vinyasa is all about, and what it has to offer us.

In this workshop using discussion, practice and workshop style tutorials we will completely breakdown the bio mechanics of the vinyasa movement, the sun salutations and the breath. We will explore whether jumping forward and jumping back should be a part of your practice, and we will work to master some of the key vinyasa standing poses and transitions.

we will aim to uncover and reveal the underlying concepts and ideologies of the Vinyasa practice. Once Understood we will work towards bringing them to the forefront of our practice.
