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.Runners are always looking for effective ways of taking care of their bodies and practicing yoga is a proven way for runners to prevent injuries. Running can be particularly hard on your knees, back and ankles and there are a number of specific yoga poses that can help relieve the strain placed on these muscles, increase your functional strength and flexibility. By helping you to train your breathing yoga can also help you to increase your oxygen intake whilst running. Yoga for Energy and Inspiration by Julie Montagu
