5 Reasons to practice Vinyasa Flow Yoga

  1. Variety is the key to life

Vinyasa Flow shares many attributes with Ashtanga, which as some of you might know which also links continuous asanas through the breath. However, while Ashtanga adopts a set sequence of poses that’s taught the same way in every class, so a student knows what to expect, Vinyasa Flow is much more flowing and free. You never know what to expect, which allows a Vinyasa teacher to set the pace and style freely. You should never usually repeat the same routine in a vinyasa class over and over again.

  1. It’s good to begin somewhere

Whether you have just completed your Beginners yoga course or you’ve taken a few Hatha classes, Vinyasa Flow is also a great starting point. Here at Kula we run two level 1 Vinyasa Flow classes which allow students who are newer to yoga to come along and take it a bit slower. Our level 1 vinyasa flow classes run every Wednesday at 6:30pm and Saturday at 11am.

  1. Breathing is good

As with many types of yoga Vinyasa Flow is practiced using a deep breathing technique, which is called Ujjayi Pranayama in Sanskrit. This phrase translates to “Victorious Breath,” but is also often called “Ocean Breath” because of the sound it makes. Think of the waves whilst sitting by the ocean.

  1. Detoxify the body

Did you know that when you work hard in a dynamic yoga class such as Vinyasa Flow and continually flow your body builds up internal heat which in turn can help with detoxifying the body? In addition to this, Vinyasa Flow and similar styles of yoga such as Rocket Yoga can also increase cardiovascular and respiratory health. It can even increase bone density.

  1. Come and join the fun

Vinyasa Flow at Yoga Kula is one of our busiest classes. We have lots of regular students who come to their mat a couple of times a week and new people joining the Vinyasa community every single day. We have level 1 and all level classes so there is something for everyone. Why not join the millions of people all over the world who love to practice vinyasa flow.


Yoga Kula also runs all levels Hot Vinyasa Flow classes. Hot Vinyasa Flow is a fun and flowing Vinyasa class taught in a heated 30-33 degree room. Our Hot Vinyasa Flow classes are hot enough to build heat, but not so hot that it’s uncomfortable to flow between postures.
