UPDATE 6.28.2020:  Due to recent developments in the spread of Covid-19 and this past week’s rapidly rising number of cases, we are taking precautionary steps to ensure the safety of all Ayama students and staff. We will continue classes ONLINE ONLY for the coming week and closely monitor the situation in order to determine when we can resume in-person classes as safely as possible. We will be reassessing the situation on Friday an announcing our plans for re-opening at that time. We thank you for you understanding and look forward to seeing you on Zoom!

As we continue to adopt the best measures for preventing the spread of coronavirus, we are also working tirelessly to keep our studio open. Your support during this critical time helps us pay rent and continue to keep our local Yoga family in strong standing. Please sign up for Zoom classes as often as you are able to or donate to the studio by clicking here. We are eternally grateful for the support we have received thus far and we hope to be a beacon of light in the community for years to come. It wouldn’t be possible without you!

Vinyasa

Vinyasa

Vinyasa

The word Vinyasa means the connection of breath to movement. Thus in Vinyasa yoga all movements are synchronized with the breath, creating a practice that is both dynamic and flowing. The asanas, or postures, are derived from the Ashtanga system. The difference between the two styles is that in Ashtanga yoga one performs the same asanas in the same sequence every time, while in Vinyasa yoga one has more freedom to improvise sequences of asanas.

  • LEVEL 1 – These classes are ideal for practicing beginners to build breath awareness, strength and flexibility at a gentler pace.  With more guidance from the teacher to learn proper posture and breath rhythm.
  • LEVEL 2 – These classes are intermediate-fast paced, though practicing beginner students are welcome to attend at their discretion.  As class will progress at a faster pace less instruction will be given and students are expected to be familiar with basic postures and breath exercises.  Inversions, arm balances and more advanced back-bends are introduced.
  • MIXED LEVELS – These moderate paced classes are open to all levels: active beginners, continuing students as well as advanced practitioners.  Students are given deeper variations depending on their possibilities or props as needed to allow the body to achieve each pose.
