Community Classes at the Deering Estate at Cutler


(Miami-Dade County, FL) -- 
The Deering Estate at Cutler offers a variety of enriching community classes in a relaxing atmosphere and historic setting. For more information, or to register, please call the Deering Estate Ticket Office at 305-235-1668 ext. 233.

Vinyasa Yoga
Instructor: Zamanta Archibold
For beginning and intermediate participants. The intention of this class is to move in a consistent flow. Vinyasa means "breath-synchronized movement." The technique utilizes the flow of one's inhalations and exhalations in coordination with the poses, better known as Asanas. This style covers a broad range of yoga and its strength is in its diversity. There is no single philosophy, rulebook, or sequence that the teacher has to follow, so there is a lot of room for individual personalization and quirks to come through. Students should bring a yoga mat, blocks and straps.
