What is Vinyasa Yoga?
Vinyasa Yoga is a transformational, fluid moving Yoga practice that builds strength, flexibility and balance in both the mind and body. Vinyasa literally means coordinating the movement with breath, which is the fundamental principal of the physical Yoga practice. In a Vinyasa class the sequencing is energetic, creative and specifically designed to teach you how to breathe and move consciously. This is a complete, full body workout, each posture complimenting the next and our skilled teachers will accomodate each student to satisfy every fitness level. Learning to be present, with yourself and your breath everyday is what Yoga is all about. Come, be inspired, move your body and breathe easy as you shine bright at Yoga Bound.
What is Yoga Therapy?
Yoga Therapy are depthful classes that allow you to soften into the body, relieve discomfort, build strength and create elasticity and lightness where there was tension and density. As you move, you will be educated with a scientific understanding of the body, how to promote stability and length (flexibility) from your stable center. Each class is a sequence of Yoga postures you will move into with the breath and increased awareness of movement habits. All of us can benefit from Yoga Therapy, as everyone has movement habits that create specific aches, weaknesses or tightness. We re-create these habits when we sit, walk and move through life. Inside of Yoga postures, under guidance of a Yoga therapist, these degenerative habits are easier to see and feel as well as investigate and correct . When learning how to live in the body with stability, confidence and lightness of moving in a Yoga class, this will transfer to the movements of daily life. In Yoga therapy, you empower yourself to heal.
What is SmartFLOW® Yoga?
Smart, deliberate and intelligent sequencing, this method of yoga, created and founded by master yoga teacher, Annie Carpenter in Los Angeles, concentrates heavily on alignment, strength building and pranayama (breath control).
FLOW-ing fluid movements coupled with classical yoga and modern anatomical breakdowns, help the practitioner move from a place of freedom and ease. This practice is designed to deepen one’s dharana (concentration) with mindful intent and intelligent somatic awareness.[/twocol_one_last]
