What is Vinyasa Yoga?
In Sanskrit VIN means to flow, and YASA means in a good path. Vinyasa is an evolving form of traditional Hatha yoga that focuses on alignment, strength, awareness, and breathing through asanas.
Vinyasa is a movement and sequence metholody, where each posture (asana) are practiced with a vinyasa flow and each vinyasa is connected to the next position by transition movements synchronized by breath.
Hatha Yoga introduces asanas (yoga postures) and pranayama (breathing techniques). Each asana is typical held for a longer period of time which introduces a gentle, relaxed style.
Yoga Nidra, which has been referred to as "yogic sleep" is the state between sleep and consciousness. The body is in a relaxed state and the instructor will guide you through a specific initial meditation to help relieve stress.
