Vinyasa classes at Yoga Palace

VINYASA

Vinyasa is intelligently designed sequences of poses (asana) woven with creativity that draws on the breath as the primary source of support. Yoga Palace offers three levels with both English and a Sanskrit level translation. As yogis, we hear EKA, DWI & TRI spoken throughout our practices. Reading the words helps reinforce the language recognition and usage. EKA, DWI & TRI is as easy as one, two, three.
