Vinyasa yoga, in which movement is synchronized to the breath, is a term that covers a broad range of yoga classes. The term vinyasa refers to the alignment of movement and breath, a method which turns static asanas into a dynamic flow.
This style is sometimes also called flow yoga, because of the smooth way that the poses run together and become like a dance. The breath becomes an important component as your teacher will instruct you to move from one pose to the next on an inhale or an exhale flow.
We at TruBliss are proud to offer vinyasa-style yoga, in the various classes below.
