Course Description: Welcome the oncoming of spring with stimulating, dynamic and heat-building Vinyasa Yoga! Vinyasa means, “To place in a special way.” It is a breath-to-movement practice, which aims to still the mind by speeding up the body and connecting deeply to the breath.
This practice will help students decompress and re-educate both physically and mentally after a
long week, semester or winter season. One will be able find places to pause and stretch deeply,
or choose to create continuous flow. Vinyasa is as gentle or vigorous as the practitioner wishes,
nourishing stiff joints during the colder months.
Using the sequences as a guide, we will thread yogic philosophy throughout the series to
explore the wisdom embedded in what is seemingly a purely physical practice. We will cultivate
physical strength and stamina to meet the demands life puts, not only on our bodies, but our
emotions, ethics, and intelligence. After heating up during the practice, we will cool down into
deep relaxation, and allow the stresses of life to soften and melt away.
