Our Signature Class
A well balanced yoga session to the sound of the breath and music that will make you groove. The word ‘vinyasa’ is derived from the Sanskrit term nyasa, which means ‘to place’ and the prefix ‘vi’, means ‘in a special way’. Vinyasa is a flowing sequence of specific asanas (yoga postures) coordinated with the movements of the breath. Vinyasa yoga requires that we cultivate an awareness that links each action to the next – one breath at a time.

Power Yoga involves synchronizing the breath with a series of postures (asanas) to some groovy world beat sounds. Each asana is linked in a special way using the breath, rhythmic pulsations, and stages of sequencing (kramas) linking each asana intelligently towards a specific peak pose. This process of sequencing producing intense internal heat and a profuse, purifying sweat that detoxifies muscles and organs. The result is improved circulation, a light and strong body, and a calm mind.
