VINYASA – To Place in a Special Way
When you break down the word Vinyasa into its sankrit roots, “Vi” means “in a special way” and “Nyasa” means “to place”. Literally, vinyasa is “to place in a special way”.
The way that a class is sequenced informs the physical and energetic effects of the practice. One posture follows another in a specific way – the placement of the poses is purposeful and powerful. This month at Prema we will explore how well-placed Vinyasa leads to a balanced, complete feeling at the end of the practice. Along the way, we will learn about bhandas, breath, gazing points, transitions and other fundamentals of our Prema Yoga classes. Expect lots of fun sweaty sequencing paired with deep relaxation.
