Vinyasa Yoga - Beginners/Intermediate Class
The word “vinyasa” can be translated as “arranging something in a special way,” like yoga poses for example. In vinyasa yoga classes, students coordinate movement with breath to flow from one pose to the next. Vinyasa is also the term used to describe a specific sequence of poses (Chaturanga to Upward-Facing Dog to Downward-Facing Dog) commonly used throughout a vinyasa class.
Vinyasa, also called flow because of the smooth way that the poses run together, is one of the most popular contemporary styles of yoga. It's a broad classification that encompasses many different types of yoga, including Ashtanga and power yoga.
In contemporary yoga parlance, vinyasa stands in opposition to hatha. Hatha classes tend to focus on one pose at a time with rest in between. In contrast, flow classes string poses together to make a sequence. The sequence may be fixed, as in Ashtanga in which the poses are always done in the same order, but most of the time vinyasa teachers have the discretion to arrange the progression of poses in their own ways, so making it good for beginners as the teacher can adapt the flow accordingly.
I cannot tell you how much your classes have helped and inspired me. You truly are an amazing teacher, your ability to make everyone feel confident about their own ability and the ability to extend themselves is second to none.
Thank you for being you.
Just want to say how amazing Janet Hanspal is at New Moi her Yoga classes are not only really relaxing but give me the best stretches and have helped considerably with the back pains I was previously getting from my job. I can now work pain free and feel great. Thanks Jan
