What is Flow Yoga?

Flow yoga, also known as Vinyasa yoga, is a style of yoga involving dynamic movement that transitions smoothly from one pose to the next. A flow yoga course can be fast- or slow-paced, with each pose anchored to the breath. In this style, the movement and “flow” of poses offer a meditative, awareness-building experience.


In a flow yoga class, you’ll spend less time in stationary poses, and more time moving through sequences like sun-salutations. Transitions between poses are often performed quickly, so you’ll need a basic knowledge of yoga to keep up. However, don’t expect the same poses for every flow yoga practice. There is no set sequence required, which allows for a wide-range of creativity on the part of the instructor. Here are a few other things you should know about flow yoga.

Who it’s for
  • Athletes
  • Intermediate/Advanced Yogis
  • People who suffer from stress
  • People who sit for long periods
Who it’s not for
  • People unfamiliar with yoga basics
  • Yogis with shoulder, knee, or back issues
How it will help you
  • Great cardio workout
  • Improves strength & flexibility
  • Builds awareness of the breath
  • Reduces stress & anxiety
How it will not help you
  • Not the best practice if you’re fatigued or overstimulated
  • Doesn’t teach the basics or good alignment
