Whether you’re just starting out with yoga, or you’re looking to try something new, there are tons of great reasons to try Vinyasa—which is one of the most popular styles among yogis of all experience levels.

Vinyasa is fun! With the flowing movements and great music, this style feels like a dance! Just about everyone looks super graceful practicing Vinyasa yoga, and there’s no better feeling than seeing yourself flow into the perfect warrior pose in the mirror.

Yoga Flow:

Sun Salutation: stretch up and reach for the ceiling, bring hands to heart center and then back up.

Right Side Stretch: open your chest up and look to the ceiling.

Left Side stretch: open your chest up and look to the ceiling.

Cactus: Pull your arms back into a cactus pose and let your head fall back.

Chair Pose: Pretend you’re about to sit in a chair, then lift your arms up and pull your chest towards the ceiling

Forward Fold: Bend forward and bring your chest as close to your knees as you can.

Half Way Up– bring your hands to your shins, straighten your back and stretch your neck out while looking to the top of your mat

Chaturanga– Jump out into a plank position, keeping your elbows in tight at your side, lower down and then snake your head and body forward.

Up Dog: Lift your chest upwards, pull your shoulders back and down and tilt your head towards the ceiling.

Down Dog: Push your body back, keeping your arms and legs straight. Lift your booty to the sky.

Warrior 1: Bring you right foot to the front, keep your hips aligned, left foot down and bring your hands to a T. Your gaze should be out in front of your right fingtertips.

Reverse Warrior: Keep your legs in the same position and stretch your right arm back. Your left hand can be either on your leg or you can place it behind your torso for added stretch.

Triangle Pose: Straighten your front leg and windmill your right hand down and your left hand up.

Revolved Triangle Pose: This one’s a little tricky so stay with me. Keep your legs in exactly the same position. Put your left hand down beside your right leg and then twist, pulling your right hand up towards the ceiling. See if you can turn your gaze up as well.
