Vinyasa Flow Yoga: Levels I and II
A sixty-minute dynamic, sweat-producing class focused on building strength and flexibility through a series of intense, vigorous, yet graceful postures using a blend of alignment principles and vinyasa. The class moves fluidly and quickly, offering advanced options. We set up each posture in stages, beginning with the modification, and then add additional components for those who want more intensity. The class is appropriate for a range of practitioners who are already physically fit, and pose modifications will be offered for more or less of a challenge; however, the class may not be best suited for those brand new to yoga.
