Vinyasa Flow Yoga
Vinyasa is a fluid sequence of poses, where breath and body move together as one in a physically intense practice that builds heat, endurance, strength and flexibility in equal measure. Students will flow through seated and standing poses, twists, balance poses and inversions when appropriate.
Indigo instructors are highly skilled in keeping students aligned and safe. We specialize in bringing a heart-centered, meditative focus and intention to this more vigorous style of Yoga.
Familiarity with standard Hatha postures is highly recommended.
