Think of this as slow flow Vinyasa. Krishnamacharya used the term Vinyasa Krama to describe his yoga method and this class is transmitted through his longest running student, Srivatsa Ramaswami, passed down to Stephen and Julia-Marie. Vinyasa means ‘Art’ or to place in a special way. In Vinyasa Krama, the body and breath are brought together in beautifully orchestrated motion. Vinyasa Krama yoga is an ancient practice of both physical and spiritual development, and is a systematic method of practicing and adapting yoga for the individual and individual class. Krama is a Sanskrit word meaning “stages.” It is a step-by-step process involving the building in gradual stages toward a “peak” within a practice session. Vinyasa Krama uses numerous variations of each posture to gracefully explore the possibilities of the body.
Students with a regular yoga practice are encouraged to attend. Monday evenings at 6:30pm, this is a 90-minute class held in the Dharma Room (non-heated room). Limited space available, therefore pre-registration for this class is required.
