CLASS DESCRIPTION
The purpose of a Vinyasa class is to link the traditional yoga asanas / postures together into a harmonious flow of transitioning positions while giving focus to active meditation. This could be considered a more 'active' class than our Hatha offerings. It is dynamic yet soft in nature, and relaxation is often reserved to the end of the session. The sequence of postures will vary from class to class, building on the fluid transitions of core asanas to develop strength, flexibility, balance and focus.
This class is taught in English, most of our teachers do speak some French, don't hesitate to ask for help understanding.

Le but d'un cours de Vinyasa est de relier les asanas traditionnels/postures ensemble dans un flux harmonieux, tout en donnant l'accent à la méditation active. Cela pourrait être considéré comme un cours plus «actif» que nos cours de Hatha. Il est dynamique mais doux en nature, et la détente est souvent réservé à la fin de la session. La séquence de postures varie d'un cours à l’autre travaillant sur les transitions fluides d'asanas de base pour développer de la force, de la souplesse, de l'équilibre et de la concentration. Le cours est ouvert à tous et il est en Anglais, n'hésitez pas à demander de l'aide à mieux comprendre. Apportez votre tapis de yoga ou une serviette.
