Vinyasa Overview

The word itself is translated from sanskrit as “to place in a special way”. Therefore, Vinyasa classes sequence postures in a flowing way along natural movement paths. At Etoile we have designated levels of Vinyasa for beginners to more advanced practitioners because Vinyasa Yoga’s flowing nature is at times intense and advanced levels require a solid foundation of proper alignment in postures. Please note that some of our Vinyasa classes are also heated and it is noted in their descriptive title.



It is recommended that practitioners wear clothing that is comfortable and easy to move in. Suggestions include leggings, athletic shorts, tank tops, t-shirts or something similar in nature. Socks are not to be worn during yoga classes as they could ultimately cause injury.
