Vinyasa Yoga is the practice of linking breath with motion. For many yoga students, a Vinyasa flow feels like a moving meditation due to this unwavering focus on the breath.
In this free yoga class sponsored by 2nd Wind Health, Ashton August will guide you through a short and sweet yet challenging Vinyasa Yoga flow with a consistent focus on the breath and linking each breath with motion.
Vinyasa Yoga is the practice of linking breath with motion.
In this yoga class, you will warm up with feel-good poses and stretches that will help you unwind from the day and undo your time sitting at a desk or in a car. Then you’ll move into Sun Salutations, flowing through Surya Namaskar A and Surya Namaskar B.

Remember, you can revisit this video anytime you’re looking for a fun challenge! It’s a great class to help you feel grounded and connected to your body and the present moment by focusing on your breath.
Pro tip for breathing during your yoga practice: Use your inhales to expand and exhales to contract. For example, you’ll inhale for a halfway lift, and exhale for a forward fold. You’ll inhale to bring your arms overhead, and exhale to guide your hands to heart center.
Since this is a more challenging Vinyasa flow, come back to it and note your progress over time. As always, take breaks and modify as needed. Yoga props are your friend, so if you like practicing with blocks or anything else, be sure to have those nearby.
