At Daybreak Yoga, we practice a vinyasa flow but we may also slow it down. We build on poses to ensure everyone is comfortable and find a level that is optimal for their practice. The desire is not to perfect yoga, just to practice.
Vinyasa yoga is a popular style of yoga that is taught in most studios or gyms around the greater Cleveland area. The Sanskrit word Vinyasa means the movement between poses, typically accompanied by regulated breathing. Breaking the word down further, nyasa means "to place things" and vi means "in a special way," therefore vinyasa yoga is a purposeful flowing practice. The fluid movements can be memorized and done as a moving meditation, almost like a dance.

You can do anything for five breaths. You can hold a standing pose. You can pause before you speak or answer. You can sit quietly and focus your mind. Yoga is about gaining confidence in the asana practice, cultivating your breath while becoming your best self.
