"Vinyasa" is a Sanskrit term meaning most literally "to place in a special way". In the context of a yoga class, it refers to the linking of poses with movement coordinated with the breath. Vinyasa sequences are often referred to simply as "flows", which is indicative of the steady and continuous shifting between poses. The classes are often seen in the context of 'phases', starting in a grounded and stable position, building to a peak requiring vigor and balance, and then releasing into a final state of rest. In a broader sense, Vinyasa yoga seeks to bring the practitioners focus to the rhythms and sequences that exist all around them in the natural world and their own mind.
A Vinyasa class designed to warm up your body, with the focus on linking breath with movement. You will learn basic poses and proper alignment with lots of individual attention. Expect reclining, seated, kneeling, and standing postures; breath work (pranayama), and meditative elements to renew and restore the mind-body connection.
Yin yoga is a quiet contemplative practice. Yin yoga works deeply into our body with longer held poses. It targets our deepest tissues of the body, our connective tissues — ligaments, joints, bones, and the deep fascia networks of the body — rather than the muscles.
