This vinyasa flow is inspired by the Ashtanga tradition — each posture is linked and connected with an inhalation or exhalation of breath and a vinyasa sequence. Each pose is held for 5 breaths and is followed by a breath-connected vinyasa as a transition to the next posture or series. First there will be a grounding warm-up, followed by sun salutations, then a standing sequence, a sitting sequence and we will end with a closing sequence designed to seal your practice as we move through the chakras. Flow with breath and grace to link mind, body, and soul. Room Temperature.
