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.As we carry on through our hectic day to day lives, we all too often fail to understand how our body's respond to stress. The stress that we cope with doesn't just go away, we actually carry it within our body; it stores itself in our muscles, particularly the muscles of our upper back, and this muscle tension can lead to tremendous pain and discomfort. Regular yoga practice can assist in relaxing your muscles to eliminate much of this upper back pain, restoring comfort and ridding your body of the pain you struggle to cope with.Cardio + Core Vinyasa by Laura Burkhart
