The purpose of a Vinyasa class is to link the traditional yoga asanas / postures together into a harmonious flow of transitioning positions while giving focus to active meditation. This could be considered a more 'active' class than our Hatha offerings. It is dynamic yet soft in nature, and relaxation is often reserved to the end of the session. The sequence of postures will vary from class to class, building on the fluid transitions of core asanas to develop strength, flexibility, balance and focus.
This class is taught in English, most of our teachers do speak some French, don't hesitate to ask for help understanding.
We will meet outside the Metro Tuileries, just inside the gates of the gardens. About five minutes before the start of class, we will walk over to the two tree groves closer to the Louvre on either side of the mini Arc de Triomphe. So be sure to arrive in plenty of time to get checked in and walk over with the group. For those arriving late, come find us there!
This class will be held on the tree grove on the LEFT
(looking at the Louvre).
