You Will Love Vinyasa Yoga
Vinyasa yoga, also referred to as flow yoga, is a practice in which movements and asanas (poses) are synchronized with the breath. At New Horizon Yoga in San Antonio, our vinyasa yoga classes consist of upward movements that are performed while inhaling and downward movements that are performed while exhaling. The asanas are linked together so that the class consists of almost continuous, smoothly flowing movement. One of our advanced vinyasa classes is a great way to break a sweat, and the synchronization of breath with movement brings sense of increased focus.
Benefits of Yoga
At New Horizon Yoga, our Vinyasa yoga classes can help you increase your muscle strength, improve your flexibility, enjoy increased focus and concentration, and enrich your spiritual life. We can easily modify the practice to suit practitioners of all levels, from absolute beginners to the most advanced. Flow yoga is a very diverse practice -- in fact, the Sanskrit word vinyasa means variations within parameters. Whether you're looking for a hardcore workout, increased focus on the mind-body connection, or an avenue to a more spiritual lifestyle, there's a vinyasa style ideally suited to your needs at New Horizon Yoga.
Ashtanga yoga is a popular option for our students who are seeking a challenging practice that grows in difficulty as their skills develop. The practice is based on six asana series, each more difficult than the last, so you can work your way to more advanced poses as you grow in strength and flexibility. If you enjoy an active lifestyle and are looking for a practice that will make you sweat, power yoga is the way to go. This practice is an offshoot of ashtanga that's designed to present a challenging, aerobic workout for strength training and flexibility. The certified instructors at New Horizon Yoga can recommend a form of Vinyasa to you based on your specific needs and the skill level where you are now -- as well as where you hope to end up.
Awaken Your Spiritual Side
If you want to benefit from the increased focus of meditation and the spiritual teachings of traditional yoga, try jivamukti, which combines chanting, music, affirmations, readings and meditation with asanas. Kali Ray TriYoga also offers a deeply meditative, spiritual practice. For a practice that emphasizes alignment and offers education on the philosophical background of the practice, try one of our white lotus yoga classes.
