Vinyasa Ashtanga Yoga

@ Vadim Fitness Studio, Ltd.

Christina Patierno teaches Vinyasa Ashtanga Yoga, which implies a powerful, flowing practice. The class is introspective, flowing, alignment-based, and graceful.

This style of yoga is characterized by a focus on dynamic connecting postures which create a flow between the more static traditional yoga postures. Vinyasa translates as linking and the system also implies the linking of the movement to the breath. Unlike some Hatha yoga styles, attention is also placed on the journey between the postures not just the postures themselves.

It improves flexibility and balance, as well as tendon and muscle strength, allowing the student to practice advanced āsanas with reduced risk of injury.

In 2008 Christina Patierno completed a 200 hour certification in the field of Yoga referred to as “Vinyasa”. In addition to this formal study, Christina also studies with teachers from various traditions, including Classical, Ashtanga, Anusara, and Iyengar Yoga.
