Vinyasa is the movement from one posture to the next, accompanied by conscious breathing. Each class has similar postures to the Hatha classes, but they are held for shorter periods of time. Variations of sun salutations connect each posture or sets of postures, resulting in a flow. All classes conclude with savasana for integration. Because vinyasa classes are designed to warm the body, the studio temperature is typically set at 80-85 degrees°F.

The fusion of yin yoga with Vinyasa flow creates an integrated, balanced 75-minute yoga practice. The Vinyasa portion is flowing movement, challenging strength and balance. The heat and internal awareness generated burns off excess energy. The Yin portion involves longer held poses, usually seated or reclined, designed to gently and therapeutically stress the connective tissues of the body, reducing energetic blockages and restoring the flow of prana.
