What is Flow Yoga?

Flow Yoga, also known as Vinyasa, is an ancient yogic style/system whereby static yoga postures (asanas) are linked together with movement & rhythmic breathing. 

How it works?

  • Continuous movement maintains heat in the body, and brings fresh oxygen to the blood and in turn the muscles; which are warm & nourished with oxygen as we move into yoga postures
  • By unifying movement with rhythmic breathing, we soothe the nervous system and calm the mind & body
  • The postures are linked, creating a continuous flow of energy helping maintain internal focus, and the focus of the class/group
  • As we gradually increase the heat in the body, this leads to detoxification of the internal organs, and seceretion of toxins through the skin (sweat)

Class structure: 

  • Breathing techniques (pranayama) to calm the mind, and provide a focus for the class
  • Gentle warm up
  • Slow Flow
  • Standing postures (linked with movement)
  • Slow Flow
  • Seated postures
  • Restorative postures / Relaxation (e.g. Savasana)
