You will also learn the names of the poses (asanas) and how to move in the best possible way for your body. The Morning Yoga Vinyasa Classes are also designed for Beginners.

These classes will prepare you for flow yoga classes. You will learn about shifting your balance appropriately, transitions, terminology, etiquette and alignment. At the end of the beginner classes you will gain body awareness and knowledge to feel confident to go into regular Vinyasa Classes and follow along comfortably.
What is the difference between vinyasa and therapeutic?
Vinayasa is flow yoga; the poses are connected together one after the next in a pattern of movements similar to dance. It is quite athletic. Therapeutic classes offer the yoga poses mostly separated by a pause – you hold a pose then return to standing before holding another pose.
Vinyasa classes can be suitable for people at any age but are usually most popular with young people. They require a moderate degree of flexibility, athleticism, and balance. Overweight individuals, older individuals, and people recovering from surgery can sometimes find flow yoga challenging or even uncomfortable. Depending on the recommendations of your doctor and your personal taste you may prefer therapeutic yoga. Therapeutic yoga is also quite challenging and athletic but by using props and the wall it is made more accessible to people who find vinyasa too difficult.
Both types of classes at Liberty Yoga are designed to get you “in shape” with a body that feels good and to help you quiet your mind. Meditation is an important part of the yoga practice and is seriously approached in all classes at our studio. Breathing exercises and concentration exercises are also essential to yoga. Many of our clients take both vinyasa and therapeutic classes and modifications can be made in both types of classes for special circumstances. Sometimes attitude and commitment are the only things holding a client back but not always – accommodations must be made for each individual. We pay attention to you as individuals to support your needs and help you grow in a way that is safe and fun. Both Christine and Erin like to play around in class and have a great time!
