"Vinyasa krama" means "to place in a specific way".

In this physically challenging stile the postures (asanas) are woven together into sequences, where the transitions from one posture to the next is as important as the asana itself. The breath plays an outstanding role in Vinyasa yoga - it is guiding us through the flows and helps to activate and store the energy. Slower forms like "Slow Vinyasa" or "Functional Vinyasa" are suitable for newbies too!

Vinyasa yoga is energizing, enhances strength, balance and flexibility and helps to find inner qualities like self-trust, equanimity, stamina, focus and presence.

And well, it is fun! Come and flow with us :).
