Vinyasa Flow involves elements of traditional Ashtanga Vinyasa system, however the sequence is open to change.
'Vinyasa' literally translates: to place in a special way. On a Vinyasa Flow class this refers to the linking movement with the breath.
Ingredients of Vinyasa Flow are: asanas (poses), vinyasa (specific sequence that links the poses), pranayama (breathing technique), bandhas (energy valves), drishti (gaze).
Proper use of these ingredients may led to the practice of Vinyasa Krama. Krama literally translated as step or stage.
Vinyasa Krama refers to that process, where the practicioner proceeds towards a certain goal. This can be an advanced/complex asana or exploring a certain mental/emotional topic such as fear, playfulness, mindfulness, breath, openness, acceptance, letting go, courage, nurturing the inner child etc.)
Possibilities are unlimited, you are encouraged being detached from the fruit of the action. It's yogis choice how you create your own magic, how deep you delve. Listen to the inner teacher, if you don't feel to do something, than don't do it. We create the space, you decide your pace and how far to go.
Remember, on the journey of findig yourself there's no right or wrong, but experience.

Choose this class if you find vinyasa based classes too much and feel the need for more explanation or time to get into each asanas. Get an insight to the ancient form of physical practice. A hatha class is ideal for you if you're interested more in the physical aspect than the invisible one. This calm and slow practice might be also beneficial for beginners as well.
'ha' is often translated as sun and 'tha' as moon referring to the two energy channels around the spine: ida and pingala. However the sanskrit verb 'hath' means 'to apply force' and some context understands it as 'oppression'. Therefore, hatha yoga is a form of practise that allows one to gain mastery over the mind.
Try this class if you're looking for something between Hatha- and vinyasa based classes. Hatha, Hatha Flow, Dynamic hatha are not independent forms of yoga traditionally. Just like pizza is baked differently all around the globe, the range of paths towards Universal Consciousness has become wider during history.
Come and see if your path includes this form of practice.

You can rely on a set sequence of poses which allows the progress traceable. The system ensures to find your path as a beginner, as an experienced practitioner or if you have injures. Traditionally, the asanas are practiced for five or six counts of breaths, however feel free to do it for three or four breaths. More important to spend equal time in each asanas instead of forcing them. You are encouraged to find that depth in each pose what keeps the body safe, yet still provides progress.
Patanjali suggests 'The eight limbs of yoga' to those who seek their path. Just like a plant or a tree grows towards light, a regular practice might lead the practitioner towards enlightenment. The eight aspects according to Patanjali:
Yama - Ethical disciplines
Niyama - Self observation
Asana - Posture
Pranayama - Breath control
Pratyahara - Sense withdrawal
Dharana - Concentration
Dhyana - Meditation
Samadhi - Enlightenment
The practice of Ashtanga yoga provides space to get to know them, however following them is not compulsory, rather suggestions to make the path towards enlightenment easier.
Joining an Ashtanga class helps you to become more familiar with the followings:
'Sthira Sukham Asanam' 'Asana is a steady, comfortable posture'- Patanjali
The emphasis is on the inner perception, rather than making a performance.
A special sequence that links two asanas. Choreography of breath and movement turns the practise into moving meditation. Creates heat in the body, letting the practitioner deeper in the asanas.
A mindfully executed Ujjayi (victorious) breath detoxifies the body and draws the practitioner back to the moment.
Bandhas (energy valves)
The subtle part of the practise. They help you to direct energy within the body and find stability.
Each asana has a specific focus point to silence the mind.
Let me invite you to a journey beyond the usual asana practise!
Are you missing something from your yoga path? Are you feeling it stuck? Need motivation?
You've probably heard that how you do something is as important than what you do.
You've probably experienced that sometimes force isn't enough for results.
This approach is absolutely fine and sometimes necessary for surviving in life.
This is one half. The other is yin: yielding, nurturing, allowing, transformative.
Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Hatha are yang approaches to the asanas, what make the muscles and their cells trained. Complete your practise by training the tissues, ligaments, joints and the fascia. Yes, they are trained during a yin practice. What seems stretching, that's actually stressing those body parts what are protected by warm muscles during a yang practise.
And what happens in the mind? You can learn to approach what happens on and outside the yoga mat softly.
