The breath is synchronized with the movement and sets the length of the holding. The flow is built around a series of poses of the Sun Salutation, which is the foundation for the class. The continuous movement of a vinyasa makes this style more aerobic and more challenging. Participants should have basic knowledge of asanas and alignment. Heightened body awareness, strength and endurance is attained by this practice. This program is taught by a Kripalu certified teacher.
