Vinyasa Krama means ‘Intelligent Sequencing’. It differs from other schools of yoga by;

– Slow movements into and out of postures with breath. This improves the action of opposing muscles around joints, which improves muscular co-ordination and joint congruence.
– Each vinyasa progressively moves onto harder variations at the rate our bodies open up and strengthen.
– Each movement is co-ordinated with a slow inhalation or exhalation that develops our breathing capacity, teaches us how to breath, improves our physiology and acts like a moving meditation for those interested in mindfulness.

Who Can Do Vinyasa Krama Yoga?

Vinyasa krama is accessible to all ages. Your yoga practise will be adapted specifically for you and your body. This applies equally to older beginners who may suffer postural problems, severe stiffness and weakness; and who might otherwise be put off a practise that is too strong and which over challenges the body. Vinyasa Krama helps you as an individual increase your own unique movement potential by working with relevant asanas. Through steady persistence, your body will transform towards greater balance, strength and flexibility.
