What is Vinyasa Yoga?

‘Vinyasa’ means ‘to place in a special way’

In Vinyasa (or Flow) yoga, the postures are linked together in a fluid movement with the breath, so the poses ‘flow’

Core Strength Vinyasa Yoga

Based on the teachings of Sadie Nardini, founder of Core Strength Vinyasa Yoga, this Flow class will focus on connecting to our core and building inner strength.

Sadie says of this style that she created: “Out of my journey into deep Center came my Core Principles, ways to clarify what the core is, exactly how to instruct it and activate the core within the yoga practice. To help students experience their Center, I created my Core Poses, specific movements, postures and sequences that bring the student into more core-generated alignment.”

Yoga Jam

The Yoga Jam is an open space where yogis with a regular practice can work on poses of their choosing!  It is your time to play, discover, and explore: you may want to spend the hour working on flying in your Arm Balances, climbing the walls with Inversions, opening your heart with Backbends, or anything else you desire.  This informal practice will begin with a Sun Salutation-inspired group warm-up.  Each person will have an opportunity to share what he/she is working on, and then the floor is yours to indulge in Self Practice.  YUM!  Plus, the support of the group will be there to give assists and feedback on your progress should you want or need it!  The session will wind down with Savasana (relaxation) and a closing meditation.
