4 Reasons to Practice Vinyasa Flow

By September 13, 2019 September 18th, 2019 No Comments

Vinyasa Flow offers plenty of amazing benefits–honestly, you’ll get a lot of them in original hot yoga too–but it’s a great complement to that practice, particularly in building upper body and core strength.

If you already know (and love!) Vinyasa Flow, these benefits will come as no surprise. But if you’re wondering whether you should see what it’s all about, the answer is YES!

Here’s four great reasons to try it!

Vinyasa Flow builds strength. More than just upper body strength (which is a plus), this class helps strengthen and balance the whole body. 

Vinyasa Flow improves flexibility. Flowing from one posture to the next warms up the body, allowing stiff muscles to loosen up–which also helps to reduce stress. Bonus! 

Vinyasa Flow helps you breathe better. In this class, movements are initiated by inhales and exhales, which helps build awareness of breath. That in turn increases lung capacity, removes toxins, calms your mind, improves organ function, regulates metabolism and so much more! 

Vinyasa Flow boosts cardiovascular health. Linking movement and breath also helps to give your heart a workout. Heat is generated by having to work the whole body, which get the heart rate up and burns calories. That’s good news!

Try it Wednesdays at 5:30 p.m., Saturdays at 2:30 p.m. and Mondays (heated) at 6:45 p.m. this week!
