WHAT FEELS GOOD
Vinyasa yoga features movements synchronized to breathing, in which poses run together – or flow – to become dancelike. The breath acts as an anchor to the movement as you to move from one pose to the next in time with inhale and exhale. If you appreciate having things a little loose and unpredictable and like to keep moving, this style is definitely worth a try.
What to Expect: This style allows for a lot of variety, but will almost always include sun salutations. Expect movement, not just stretching. Vinyasa’s strength is in its diversity. There is no single philosophy, rulebook, or sequence that teachers must follow, so there is a lot of room for individual personalities and quirks to come through. Whether the class is fast or slow, includes inversions, or is very alignment-oriented will depend on the individual teacher and the particular style in which he or she is trained. Some classes include warm up stretches at the beginning, while others launch straight into standing poses. Some very popular yoga styles, including Ashtanga, Power Yoga, Jivamukti, and CorePower make use of the vinyasa method.
