ABOUT THE CLASS
For first timers or those looking to slow down, fine tune or deepen their practice, taking a Vinyasa restorative yoga class can get you there. Focusing on quality transitions between posture and awareness of breath and mind, Vinyasa, also called flow is one of the most popular contemporary styles of gentle yoga class.
In Vinyasa yoga, each movement is synchronized to a breath. The breath is given primacy, acting as an anchor as you move from one pose to the next.
Each movement in the series is cued by an inhalation or an exhalation of the breath.
This gentle style becomes a catalyst for physical healing, psychological, emotional development, and spiritual awakening. Postures are held as meditation in motion, emphasizing proper breath, alignment.
A restorative yoga class allows for a lot of variety, but expect to move, sometimes vigorously, from pose to pose.
Some classes include some warm-up stretches at the beginning while others launch straight into standing poses.
You can expect to go through any combination of the poses below in this relaxing yoga class.
The beginner’s version of the vinyasa is plank → knees, chest, chin → cobra → downward facing dog.
The advanced version is plank → chaturanga dandasana → upward facing dog → downward facing dog.
Some flow classes have a lot of vinyasas. If you get tired and your form starts to slip, go back to the beginners’ version.
The strength of a Vinyasa restorative yoga class is in its diversity. If you appreciate having things a little loose and unpredictable and like to keep moving, this style is definitely worth a try.
In most cases, there is no single philosophy, rulebook, or sequence that teachers must follow.
