What is Vinyasa Flow Yoga?

Flow yoga is a term given to a style of yoga where the practitioner moves gracefully from one pose to the next and the class, or practice, becomes almost like a dance.


Each movement in to or out of a posture is made on an inhalation or exhalation, so the yoga unites the breath with the movement in a choreographed sequence. The flowing movements will be combined with some longer holds of certain postures.


The class will begin with gentler movements to warm up the body, then into progressively more challenging flowing sequences. These may include balances, inversions and peak poses. It will end with calmer, deeper stretches, and floor-based asana practice.
