Art of a Safe Vinyasa

A vinyasa has been coined the sequence of movements from down dog, to plank, to chaturanga, to cobra or up dog. In Sanskrit, Vinyasa means “to place in a special way.” Vinyasa also means a gradual progression or a step-by-step approach that systematically and appropriately takes a student from one point and safely lands them at the next point. Those of you that take Jamie regularly, know that she is passionate about doing vinyasas safely. Jamie will utilize the shape of tadasana (mountain pose) as a blueprint for all of the poses, and teach you how to find this shape in the vinyasa. In this all levels workshop, Jamie breaks down the fundamental alignment of each pose using Yoga props, observing bodies and adjustments to help you safely modify your vinyasa, and to also feel in your body where you may be over loading your joints. Jamie will also address how to jump forward and back in the vinyasa, and if your body is ready for those transitions. She will help you to correct the common “sleepy areas” (as she likes to call them), so that you can prevent future injuries and/or heal current vinyasa-related weaknesses. Jamie believes that learning vinyasas correctly will help transform other parts of your practice, and illuminate where you made be “sleepy” in other areas.
