Flow/Vinyasa

‘Vinyasa’ essentially describes synchronising breath with movement and the orderly steps or sequencing of postures. Vinyasa flow classes emphasise linking poses with movement. Derived from Ashtanga, the nouveau style follows a sequence decided by the teacher (good for variety junkies). Often held in a heated environment, the classes tend to be dynamic. Prepare to work up a mild sweat and feel the burn – a bit.
