In Vinyasa, we practice breath initiated movement. Class pace is aerobic, fluid, and challenging for beginners. There is a strong emphasis on delicate transitions, with steadiness and ease recognized as elements of graceful movement. Refined movement through powerful postures create integrated strength, flexibility, and a kick butt workout.Athletes will tell you that weight bearing sports put an enormous amount of stress and strain on your body. From your hips to your hamstrings or lower back sports can put a real burden on your muscles. Athletic Yoga combines the cardiovascular exercise of a short dynamic warm up with the stretching achieved through more traditional fitness stretches. This type of yoga is especially designed for athletes and is perfect for before and after your traditional training regimen or practice session. Professional sportsmen from runners and tennis players to American footballers have all started to integrate yoga into their lives. Yoga for Weight Loss by Julie Montagu
