Focus of the Month: April

down dog

Vinyasa

Last month we focused on breath, this month we take note of how yoga is a play of linking breath to movement. The word Vinyasa is often translated as “to place with special care.” What are we placing with special care? Look for answers this month in all the classes as teachers give you their own renditions of the importance of this word. Some will take apart the series of poses and transitions inside that downward dog, plank, chaturanga, upward dog back to dog choreography we have come to associate with vinyasa. Others will explain the special care we take to connect a rhythmic breath with movement, the awareness we continually cultivate together on our mats in our sangha and much more. We look forward to sharing it all with you.
