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.
- Calming: The steady cycle of inhales and exhales provides you with a calming, mental focal point.
- Purification of body: The continual movements, from one pose to another, gives you an added cardiovascular benefit creating internal heat. The increased circulation and sweat leads to purification of the body.
- Increase muscle strength & flexibility: The routines, whether they are slow paced or fast paced are a great workout for your body.
- Brings you to the present: Yoga opens you up to this moment, which is all there is and which is the doorway to experience truth and real happiness.
"My yoga practice began at birth and I continue to explore and learn. I am a photographer, videographer, and artist with a background in dance. For many years I alternated between ballet class, yoga, swimming, and marathon running, and eventually my yoga and meditation practice deepened. For the past twelve years, I have devoted my energy to the study of yoga and yoga philosophy. My teachers are numerous and include my students, my family, my friends, and the yoga community. A Yoga Alliance certified instructor, I completed the Heart Center Yoga 200-hour teacher training in May 2009 and the Asheville Yoga Center 500-hour certification in October of 2012. My hope is to teach classes that are energetic, playful, mindful, and rooted in compassion, and that we continue to grow together through the infinite love that is our true nature." — Sally Fanjoy
