The challenging experience of Bhava Vinyasa practice strengthens and stretches the body, helps to quiet the mind, and uplifts the heart.
A typical Bhava Vinyasa class begins with the chanting of OM, followed by moon or sun salutations and standing poses for 30 to 45 minutes, to warm the body and establish a centered mood. The rest of the class is devoted to a well-rounded blend of twists, forward bends, backward bends, balances, inversions and rests, carefully sequenced so as to access the inner grace in the more “difficult postures.” The class closes with a substantial final relaxation sequence.
As we practice imbuing our efforts with grace, this approach becomes habitual and intrinsic to our nature on and off the yoga mat. Through the flow of our Vinyasa practice, we unfold toward greater self-awareness and acceptance, increased resilience and compassion, a healthier, calmer way of being.The challenging experience of Bhava Vinyasa practice strengthens and stretches the body, helps to quiet the mind, and uplifts the heart.
