Yoga (Vinyasa Flow)
Yoga is an ancient form of physical, mental and sometimes spiritual exercises that have been practised and passed down through hundreds of years of generations across the globe. Urban Kings's trainers have developed yoga that fits into a modern, busy world - our aim is to teach not preach. With an emphasis on practise and experience over form and function.
About Vinyasa Flow Yoga Classes
Vinyasa is a term that covers a broad range of yoga classes. The word Vinyasa means “breath-synchronized movement”. In other words, the teacher will instruct you to move from one pose to the next on an inhale or an exhale. This technique is sometimes also called Vinyasa Flow, or just Flow because of the smooth way that the poses run together and become like a dance.
Any form of yoga will provide physical benefits, helping you to gain balance and flexibility. With Vinyasa, you will particularly notice an increase of stamina and endurance. As one practices yoga on an everyday basis, his or her muscles strengthen and stretch and the body heals itself. In conjunction with the increased stamina comes improved balance and coordination.
What it takes
Vinyasa for Health & Wellness
The body becomes revitalised and its ability to heal is enhanced by stretching, strengthening and breathing techniques. An increased body heat and energy will create looser muscles as well as stronger blood flow, carrying oxygen to essential organs for revitalisation. This style allows for a lot of variety, but will almost certainly include Sun Salutations. Expect movement, not just stretching.
