FLOW YOGA with KATE CURRAN
Vinyasa yoga, in which movement is synchronized to breathe, is a term that covers a broad range of yoga classes. This style is sometimes also called flow yoga, because of the smooth way that the poses run together and become like a dance. The breath becomes an important component because the teacher will instruct you to move from one pose to the next on an inhale or an exhale. Vinyasa is translated from Sanskrit as meaning “connection,” according to Ellen Stansell, Ph.D., RYT, a scholar of yogic literature and Sanskrit. In terms of yoga asana, we can interpret this as a connection between movement and breath.

Kate particularly enjoys Chair Yoga because it can be embraced by, literally, everyone. Any asana (pose) that can be practiced on a mat, can be practiced on a chair. Her classes also include about 15 minutes of meditation.
