Based on the belief that yoga is for everyone... young, old, stiff and flexible, for the novice and as well as the advanced practitioner. This ancient science of breath, movement, and self-awareness will improve the quality of life of anyone who chooses to experience it. Yoga practices are designed and intended to promote self-knowing, or the deepening of consciousness about who we are in relation to ourselves and the outside world. This allows us to live up to our full potential as a human being. By repeatedly connecting to ourselves via the body, breath, and mind we are practicing Yoga. We discover little by little, or in flashes of perception, who we really are. Yoga is firstly for individual growth, but through individual growth, society and community develop." B.K.S. Iyengar. Our main focus at Serenity is Power Vinyasa Flow. The word Vinyasa means breath-synchronized movement. We will instruct you to move from one pose to the next on an inhale or an exhale like a dance or moving meditation. Yoga flow, or "vinyasa" yoga, connects each pose or asana to the next, dynamically linking movement with breath while creating heat and stamina in the body. The length of each inhale and exhale typically determines the length of time held in each posture. This technique is often referred to as "flow" because of the fluid way that the poses run together, much like a tightly choreographed dance. Two examples of common flow sequences include the simple cat-cow stretch, where the spine is arched on the inhale and rounded on the exhale, and the more complex sun salutation, which links plank, chaturanga and upward facing dog. A series of sun salutations are often used as a warm up at the beginning of many flow sessions. One of the greatest appeals of cultivating a flow yoga practice comes from the diversity of poses it offers. No flow sequence is ever exactly the same, leaving a lot of room for the experience and personality of the teacher to shine through. While most of our classes are heated to around 80-85 degrees we do have some classes that are not heated.
