Baptiste Power “Vinyasa” Yoga is the primary yoga practice at Karma Yoga. Created by Baron Baptiste after years of study and practice, a flow called Journey into Power (JIP) combines fitness and yoga and includes the best from the East and the West. Vinyasa is the flow that occurs when we connect movement with breath. In the practice of power yoga each cycle of breath sets the tempo of movement and creates momentum. Momentum builds heat and cardiovascular health. Each pose, and the pose between each pose, occurs with an inhale or an exhale. There is fluidity in vinyasa that brings freedom to the body and a “moving meditation” that frees your mind. You will find that even in relative stillness, each moment of vinyasa has movement and holds opportunity for exploration. In vinyasa you will think less and be more, staying out of your head and letting your body and soul shine. Creativity and discovery await if you surrender, let go, and flow.
