I LOVE teaching my Power Yoga classes! I teach a variety of yoga styles (relaxation, yoga for children, yoga for seniors, chair yoga etc..) but Vinyasa Flow/Power Yoga gets all my senses raging and soaring to unbelievable heights!. I am still reeling from my Power Yoga class last night at Golds Gym Orlando where the room was packed to the walls, the sweat was flowing, and the muscles were glistening and stretching to absolute perfection! Vinyasa Flow is the key to a successful and invigorating Yoga class. Below is a great article I found online and the source is on the bottom of the page. If you have questions about Vinyasa or want to attend one of my yoga classes please let me know.
~Vinyasa is a term that covers a broad range of yoga classes. The word Vinyasa means “breath-synchronized movement.” In other words, the teacher will instruct you to move from one pose to the next on an inhale or an exhale. This technique is sometimes also called Vinyasa Flow, or just Flow because of the smooth way that the poses run together and become like a dance.
This style allows for a lot of variety, but will almost certainly include Sun Salutations. If your yoga class schedule lists a Vinyasa class, expect movement, not just stretching. Whether the class is fast or slow, includes chanting, or is very alignment-oriented will depend on the individual teacher. Some very popular yoga styles, such as Ashtanga and Power Yoga, make use of the Vinyasa method, but they will be listed on a class schedule by their individual names.
Vinyasa’s strength is in its diversity. There is no single philosophy, rulebook, or sequence that teachers must follow, so there is a lot of room for individual personalities and quirks to come through. This makes it essential that you find a teacher you enjoy and can relate to. If your first Vinyasa class doesn’t rock your world, keep trying different teachers. If you enjoy having things a little loose and unpredictable and like to move, Vinyasa is probably right for you.~

Love the quote! I didn’t realise you had so many great yoga tips on your blog! In fact, I only just realised you had a blog.
So I may not be able to come to your classes in person, but i’ll be reading your blog and now I can practise at home! Miss you!
