Classes taught by the Greenlake Community Yoga team will be basic power Vinyasa classes. While no class will be exactly the same and will be scripted by the teacher, classes will follow a standard format. The classes will have an integration series, multiple sun salutations, warrior series, balancing series, triangle series, back bending series, abdominal series, inversion series, hip series, forward bending series, and final rest.
Vinyasa yoga, in which movement is synchronized to the breath, is a term that covers a broad range of yoga classes. This style is sometimes also called flow yoga, because of the smooth way that the poses run together and become like a dance. The breath becomes an important component because the teacher will instruct you to move from one pose to the next on an inhale or an exhale. Vinyasa is literally translated from Sanskrit as meaning "connection". In terms of yoga asana, we can interpret this as a connection between movement and breath.
