Lysander Parks and Recreation: Karate after school

— Vinyasa Yoga

Vinyasa classes, which require intermediate level, previous yoga experience, will be offered from 9 to 10:15 a.m. Wednesdays (Sept. 26 to Oct. 24) or from 5:30 to 6:45 p.m. Thursdays (Sept. 27 to Oct. 25) at AM/PM Yoga Source Studio in Phoenix. The class heightens body awareness, strength and endurance. Vinyasa (Flow Yoga) is a class of continuous movement where one pose flows into another. The breath is synchronized with the movement and sets the length of the holding. This style is more aerobic and more challenging. No Vinyasa experience necessary but should have yoga experience and knowledge of proper alignment in yoga postures.
