Vinyasa means 'to place in a special way' and is a hatha yoga practice in which conscious 'ujayi' breath is yoked to conscious movement and sequential postures - creating a fairly dynamic physical practice which also calms and focuses the mind. The class concludes with 'pranayama' - focused breath work and 'nidra' - a deep relaxation.

Hatha yoga is a practical system which offers a wide scope of techniques including: inner purification, posture, breath, containment of energy, meditation and relaxation. Hatha yoga tones & strengthens muscles and organs. Flexibility is naturally increased and the spine is encouraged towards a state of optimum health. Hatha also works on a subtle, energetic level: releasing blockages, replenishing depleted reserves and increasing vitality. Hatha Yoga has been practised in India for at least eight centuries.
