What is yoga vinyasa?
Yoga means union. It comes from the word “yuj” which means concentrate one’s attention on. Union with what? The divine source.
Vinyasa yoga is a modern practice of yoga. Vinyasa focuses on coordinating breath with movement. It comes from Ashtanga Vinyasa which was taught by Pattabhi Jois. By linking the postures, it creates a continuous flow of energy that heats up the body, bringing oxygen to the blood, nourishing the glands and internal organs, cleansing and purifying the nervous system releasing unwanted toxins through perspiration.
A class will usually start with some breathing exercises, seated postures, standing postures, balance postures, inversions or arm balance postures, seated postures and savasana (relaxation).
I am a certified Vinyasa yoga teacher (RYT-200 hours). My yoga journey started in 2013 in Brussels, when working as lawyer I was looking for a practice to calm my mind.
After my yoga teacher training in Bali (at Joga Yoga), I decided to share the benefits of this practice with others. Since then, I stopped my corporate job to devote my time and energy teaching yoga. I am currently following a Mentorship Program at Yoga Room to deepen my knowledge of yoga.
I love dancing, music and cooking. I will probably put some music on during classes and talk about food after class.
