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.When you think of exercises that can help you relax, yoga is often the default. This is because yoga is all about remaining calm while maintaining some uncomfortable positions that slowly become more comfortable the longer you practice. Yoga is even a great way to help kids relax, as it can decrease stress and improve attention and behavior, according to a study by Wayne State University. And heck, if yoga can help even children find their calm, then you know that’s powerful stuff! Calming yoga is wonderfully beneficial in clearing the cobwebs from your mind and helping you to find your center. Moving Meditation by Julie Montagu
