Vinyasa is a style of yoga that links movement and breath to attain balance in the mind and body. The term Vinyasa translates from Sanskrit as: “to place in a special way.” In this way, Vinyasa places or aligns a deliberate sequence of poses (Asanas) with the breath to achieve a continuous Flow. Vinyasa's Flow helps us cultivate a strong connection between our body, mind, and soul.
Arm Balances & Inversions
Arm Balances and Inversions are some of the more challenging poses in all of yoga. By challenging ourselves we can stay fully present as well as focused. Arm Balances and Inversions allow us to build strength physically and mentally. They help us to overcome our fears on the mat as well in the life. Arm Balances are just as they sound, balancing one's own body weight fully on the arms. Inversions on the other hand are where the entire body is Inverted (upside down, above the head) and all the weight is balanced on the arms, hands, or head.
SUP or Paddleboard Yoga, originated in the U.S. around 2013. It is the combination of modern yoga for exercise with stand up paddleboarding (SUP). The board is placed in calm water, often anchored in place, and the participant Flows while on top. SUP Yoga helps the participant build strength, flexibility, and especially balance while providing a calming and peaceful setting.
