You’ve asked for it, here’s another opportunity to practice Vinyasa in the Iyengar tradition!
Vinyasa is often thought of as a flow of asanas, typically Surya Namaskar and/or jumpings. In Astadala Yogamala (Vol.2), Guruji writes, “The word vinyasa has two parts. ‘Vi’ means separating or disjuncting and ‘nyasa’ means placing or putting in order. Vinyasa means separating and putting down or placing in sequential order.” It includes jumpings but is not limited to jumpings.
As we did in January, we will look at the coordination of dynamic continuous movement of primarily introductory poses to give further insight into the natural flow and evolutions of actions inherent in the asanas. On a purely physical level, the actions of a Vinyasa practice yield endurance, power and strength.
Prerequisite: Strong Level 1/2 experience.
Need not have attended the January sessions.
Not recommended for those with injuries.
