Purpose sustains us through the intermediary challenges before we find relief and release. This is a shoulder-centric flow that focuses on the twisting and untwisting nature of life as represented by the physical rotation of our torso. Learning to breathe deeply and deliberately through challenging twists helps us to remove any energetic blockages in our system by increasing blood and energy flow. We end this practice with hip stretches as we settle down into our corpse pose to receive our aliveness.

Vinyasa is a dynamic system of practicing asana by linking breath to continuous movement in sequence. This style of yoga builds heat, endurance, flexibility, and strength through focused concentration. An attentive ear and some knowledge of basic yoga postures is recommended to keep pace with the flow. Sequencing is often built around sun salutations, and may vary with teacher. Students are encouraged to modify and take variations if needed.
