Vinyasa Unveiled

Posted On
Join Cat Valadez This workshop breaks down the anatomy and biomechanics of staying safe in an active yoga practice when it comes to flowing through “the vinyasa” and sun salutes. We will look closely at common misalignments and correct engagement in plank, chaturanga, and upward facing dog especially, and discover the deep connection between the sun salute (Surya Namaskar A) and the rest of your asana practice. Beyond the basics of these postures, we will also play with fun transitions connected to them: jumping back, jumping forward, through, and much more!

Recommended for new and experienced students alike, anyone who feels even a little unsure of what they’re supposed to be doing when the teacher calls for “taking a vinyasa.” Finding stability and strength in these postures is the key to opening everything else you do in asana, and will set the foundation for injury-free shoulders for years to come.
