Vinyasa yoga is great for building muscle and increasing flexibility. Many common vinyasa yoga postures engage your abs, quads, shoulders and more to strengthen your body.
Vinyasa yoga also promotes flexibility in your muscles. The smooth transitions and repetitive flows of vinyasa yoga give you ample opportunities to improve your body’s range of movement. The more you regularly practice, the more length and stretch you’ll see in your poses. Even comparing your abilities from the beginning of a class to the end, you’ll see a significant difference!
On top of the physical benefits, vinyasa is helpful for your mental wellbeing. Vinyasa yoga focuses on breathing first and foremost, so finding your center throughout challenging yoga sequences is a surefire mind-clearer and stress reducer. After a great flow, you’ll get to experience the perfect intersection between a post-meditation glow and an endorphin high!
