What is vinyasa yoga?

Vinyasa yoga focuses on matching your breath and the flow of movement from posture to posture. The transitions in vinyasa yoga are as important as the poses themselves, making this yoga style particularly flowy and active. Vinyasa yoga uses muscle-engaging poses and sequence repetition to strengthen muscles, increase flexibility and improve overall fitness.

What is vinyasa yoga good for?

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!

What is the difference between Vinyasa and Hatha yoga?

While vinyasa yoga and hatha yoga leverage similar postures, there are some key differences in the flows. Hatha yoga moves at a slower pace, both in holding postures longer and allowing more time for transitions to the next post. The goal is to focus on breathing, control and endurance of your body in these muscle-engaging poses.
Vinyasa yoga is more like mat dancing. While each flow depends on the instructor to a degree, pose transitions are typically fairly quick and some positions may meld together to create continuous movement. This style of flow allows for more fluid transitions and more opportunities to raise your heart rate through cardio.

What to wear to vinyasa yoga class

In a standard vinyasa yoga flow, you will lie on your stomach, spread your legs and even spend some time upside down. That means choosing clothing where you’ll never stress about flashing the person on the mat behind you! Many people choose form-fitting, stretchy fabrics that stay in place even in headstands. No matter what you choose, skip anything with buttons, zippers or hardware (including bras)! The skin on your back will thank you later.

How much does a vinyasa yoga class cost?

Vinyasa yoga classes typically range from $11 to $25 per class. Most studios offer unlimited classes if you commit to monthly or annual memberships. Of course, it may take some shopping around to find the studio environment, instructors and community that is right for you! With ClassPass, you can try several studios in your area without making any costly time commitments. Win-win!
