Vinyasa Yoga is a powerful, energetic form of yoga where students fluidly move from one pose to the next while connecting their breathing to their movements. This type of yoga is taught in a heated studio which makes it a vigorous and revitalizing form of physical fitness. It incorporates strength, flexibility, balance, cardio and physical and mental stamina in one session. Baron Baptiste, the founder of this form of yoga, describes this practice as “the perfect blend of sweat and serenity.”

 

BENEFITS OF VINYASA YOGA:

 

  • Blood pressure. A consistent yoga practice decreases blood pressure through better circulation and oxygenation of the body.

 

  • Pulse rate. A slower pulse rate indicates that the heart is strong enough to pump more blood with fewer beats. Regularly practicing yoga provides a lower pulse rate.

 

  • Circulation. Yoga improves blood circulation. By transporting nutrients and oxygen throughout the body, yoga practice provides healthier organs, skin, and brain.

 

  • Respiratory. Like the circulatory system, a lower respiratory rate indicates that the lungs are working more efficiently. Yoga decreases the respiratory rate through a combination of controlled breathing exercises and better fitness.

 

  • Cardiovascular endurance. A combination of lower heart rate and improved oxygenation to the body (both benefits of yoga) results in higher cardiovascular endurance.

 

  • Organs. Yoga practice massages internal organs, thus improving the ability of the body to prevent disease. Additionally, an experienced yoga practitioner becomes better attuned to the body to know at first sign if something isn’t functioning properly, thereby allowing for quicker response to head off disease.

  • Metabolism. Having a balanced metabolism results in maintaining a healthy weight and controlling hunger.
