Classes held at
Breathing Space Studio

Lindsey will be hosting a special 4-week trauma-focused series. Come learn about how your body responds to stress and trauma, followed by Vinyasa Flow Yoga. 

This trauma-informed yoga workshop series consists of four sessions.  The first half hour of the workshop will consist of psychoeducation covering topics such as the mind-body connection, physiology of trauma, mindfulness exercises, breathwork & more. Following this, students will be led through an hour-long dynamic vinyasa flow. Each session will have a unique theme, specifically designed to target the body's physiological reactions to stress and trauma. The themes are Release (focus on hips); Empower (power flow, focus on strengthening postures);  Acceptance (focus on heart openers); and Peace (focus on balancing postures).  The workshop aims to educate and enlighten students about the power they possess to heal from trauma, and release stress.

Yoga to transform your life!

Vinyasa flow yoga is a dynamic and flowing style of yoga that focuses on coordinating movement with breath. The word "vinyasa" comes from the Sanskrit word "nyasa," which means "to place," and "vi," which means "in a special way." In vinyasa yoga, each movement is smoothly transitioned into the next, creating a continuous flow.

A typical vinyasa flow yoga class will involve moving through a sequence of poses that are linked together with the breath. The pace of the practice is usually moderate to fast, and the breath is used to guide the movement. This style of yoga is known for being both physically and mentally challenging, as it requires coordination, concentration, and strength.

Vinyasa flow yoga can be a great option for people looking for a more active and energizing yoga practice, as well as those who enjoy moving their bodies and connecting with their breath. It's also a great way to build strength, flexibility, and balance.

What can Vinyasa Yoga
do for me?
  • Improve Cardiovascular Health: The continuous movement and dynamic transitions in vinyasa yoga can elevate the heart rate, providing a cardiovascular workout and improving overall cardiovascular health.

  • Increases Strength and Flexibility: Vinyasa yoga requires the use of multiple muscle groups, helping to build strength and flexibility. The flowing nature of the practice can also help to increase flexibility over time.

  • Reduces Stress and Anxiety: The combination of physical movement and deep breathing in vinyasa yoga can help to reduce stress and anxiety levels, promoting a sense of calm and relaxation.

  • Enhances Focus and Concentration: The need to coordinate movement with breath in vinyasa yoga can improve focus and concentration, making it a great practice for those who struggle with mindfulness and meditation.

  • Promotes Mind-Body Connection: The integration of breath and movement in vinyasa yoga helps to create a strong mind-body connection, encouraging a deeper sense of awareness and presence in the moment. This can help to improve overall physical and mental well-being.
