Beginner Vinyasa


This class is taught by:

Robin Hashway

Robin began practicing yoga and fell, quick and hard, in love with the physical practice. Always an athlete, yoga provided not only strength training, but a delicious sense of full body ease, not something she usually associated with "working out." And when the opportunity arose to take a teacher training, she jumped in. Robin had no intention of teaching, only wanting to learn more about the physical benefits of asana, and to begin to dive into the history and philosophy of a practice that was quickly transforming not only her body, but her sense of calm and wellbeing. Part of the training requirement was practice teaching, so Robin forced her family to meet every week for an hour so she could pass along the sequences and postures she was learning. By the end of her training, Robin was itching to start passing on everything she could to anyone who would listen, and lo and behold, applied to teach.
Robin trained in Hatha and Vinyasa Yoga right here at Providence Power Yoga, earning her 200 hour RYT in February of 2016, and began teaching in April of the same year. She approaches the asana practice as a way to explore the body and mind with curiosity and joy. By creating strong, sometimes unusual sequences based on the foundational postures, students build strength and security. Steady vinyasa flow, supplemented with graceful organic movements (and just a little fun) allows the student to find their own freedom of expression on the mat. 
 

 

A beginner's guide to Vinyasa yoga. Learn the basics of Sun Salutations A&B as well as the foundation postures often taught in Vinyasa classes. 
 
Vinyasa style classes emphasize movement with conscious, regulated breath. Poses “flow” from one to the next in a series of connected sequences. It is a powerful class that cultivates strength, endurance, concentration, balance, and flexibility.

Vinyasa classes are challenging, invigorating and heated! The Yoga studio is heated between 88-93 degrees depending on season, weather and teacher discretion. Teachers provide supportive instruction of Yoga asana with focused attention on Ujjayi pranayama (breathing practice). Expect each class to include the full spectrum of Yoga postures; Sun Salutations A&B, standing postures, balance postures, twists, belly down backbends, inversions, seated floor postures, supine poses and relaxation.
