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. Cost: $60 for a 6 week session plus a one-time $12 annual registration fee.
