Vinyasa 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 which explains why it is sometimes referred to as Vinyasa Flow or just Flow.  The classes of Vinyasa at Yogalinda are intermediate due to their strong enfassis on strength.  If you want to sweat a lot and are in good physcial shape Vinyasa would be the perfect class for you.

Hatha Yoga

Hatha is the combination of “ha,” meaning sun, and “tha,” meaning moon denoting the union of opposites.  Hatha also means a force of determined effort.  Therefore hatha yoga implies that it takes a lot of strength, discipline, and effort to unify opposing forces and to bring together the body and the mind.

Hatha Vinyasa Yoga

Hatha Vinyasa Yoga is the combination of the two disciplines giving the student a way to experience the union of opposites within their own bodies by teaching a flow sequence of asanas and the breathing associated with them.  Vinyasa Flow moves steadily from pose to pose in a sequences of movements linked or associated together synchronized with breathe, often pausing to hold poses for various lengths of time while maintaining the rhythmic flow of the breath.  Unlike Ashtanga Vinyasa, each class usually offers a different sequence of poses, although most use some form of Surya Namaskara A and B.  Most Hatha Vinyasa Flow classes apply Iyengar alignment principles, energetic actions within poses, and use of props.

Unlike most approaches to Hatha yoga, which have a fixed system, Hatha Vinyasa is not a system.  This allows creativity in sequencing asanas and offerring a diverse array of themes in different clases.  There is no hierarchy, no leading guru as in Anusara, Ashtanga, Bikram, Iyengar, and many other approaches.

Yogilates

Yogilates is an exhilarating blend of the strengthening peaceful qualities of yoga mixed with the core-toning and stretch of Pilates.

Yin Yoga

Yin Yoga is the perfect balance in your practice of dynamic yoga (Yang, Vinyasa, Ashtanga) and a complement to the agitated lifestyle with lots of worries and distractions.

Yin Yoga is different from other styles as yoga as you stay in the postures for a longer period of time and your objective is to influence your connective tissues, ligaments and articulation.  Mentally you learn to keep your mind still while practice staying in the present during long postures.

At Yogalinda, the practice of Yin Yoga is restorative allowing the body and the mind to come to the maximum relaxation as possible.  We will utilize different supports such as blocks and straps to permit the body to stay in the postures for long periods of time, experimenting in each the sensation of absolute tranquillity and heath benefit.

We recommend the practice of Yin Yoga if you identify yourself in one or more of the following situations:

  • Stress
  • Problems sleeping
  • Recuperating from an illness or injury
  • Balance your energy from a agitating day
  • If you feel you are too old to practice yoga
