About our Vinyasa Yoga Auckland classes

These classes are creative and flowing sequences of yoga poses linked by steady rhythmic breathing and practiced to music. We absolutely love Vinyasa Yoga.

Sequenced poses

Vinyasa translates (loosely) as “to arrange in a special way” meaning that poses are often intelligently sequenced to achieve a specific goal within the class.

Deep breathing

Breathe deep and use the entire the lung capacity. This increases Prana (vital life force) leaving you feeling really good.

Dance like

Doing a vinyasa class feels like dancing. There’s music, flowing, connected poses and special sequences.

  • Level 1
    Open to all levels.  No yoga experience necessary.

  • Open Level.
    A class for all levels. Be guided through sequences with enough instructions to suit newer students and options to challenge more experienced practitioners. Modifications will be given to suit students’ needs.

Why we love Vinyasa Yoga

There is something about a vinyasa yoga class that leaves you with a ‘what just happened’ feeling.

The journey from meditation, to warm up which builds you to a delicious peak and then winds you all the way back down to a well deserved rest is something difficult to describe.

The continuous flow of movements help you to stay present during class, the perfect antidote when you’ve got lots on your mind.

Vinyasa yoga movements stretch and move you in ways that balance, tone & realign your body.

It’s the practice for true lovers of movement, energy & music.

“Great, friendly and accommodating. Encouraging.” Jay

Is Vinyasa Yoga right for you?

  • This is the class to move, breathe and sweat as well as develop strength and flexibility. Although the long term benefits of all yoga classes are to relax the body, this is where we’ll throw in the challenges.
  • Beginner? Don’t worry! That’s what level 1 classes are for, you’ve got to start somewhere right? You will need a basic level of physical ability, and we’ll guide you into it slowly but suggest that you get in touch with us first if you are unsure.
  • If your mind wanders in slower styles of yoga, then the concentration required in a vinyasa yoga class will help you to calm a busy wandering mind.
  • From teacher to teacher, classes vary a lot – it’s all about personality, so try a few before you settle with your favourite. Think variety, creativity, fun, music, movement, challenge, energy & anything goes. You’ll never get bored.
  • If you have injuries, are pregnant or have specific requirements, then consult us before trying a class.
