The word yoga, from the Sanskrit word "yuj" means to yoke or bind and is often interpreted as "union" or a method of discipline. It is the connection of body, breathe and mind. Yoga is the restriction of the fluctuations of consciousness (Yogas-citta-vrtti-nirodhah).
A little bit about Vinyasa Flow Yoga
Vinyasa means "breath-synchronized movement," and Vinyasa yoga is a series of poses that will move you through the power of inhaling and exhaling. Vinyasa movements are smoothly flowing and almost dance-like, which explains why it is sometimes referred to as Vinyasa Flow or just Flow. Class will almost always include sun salutations.
Jason Crandell's method (with whom I trained) of Power + Precision + Mindfulness classes deliver a strong vinyasa practice, an education about the technique of yoga, and accessible contemplative teachings.
Power - Get stronger from the inside out
Precision - Move more skillfully
Mindfulness - Witness yourself without judgement
