Vinyasa is a Sanskrit term that combines “nyasa,” meaning “to place,” “special order,” or “attention,” with “vi,” meaning “specially.” In the context of yoga, vinyasa is interpreted as a practice with a theme or purpose consisting of poses linked and associated together.
The term has many other meanings in Sanskrit, but in yoga, vinyasa is most commonly understood as a special way of practicing yoga that involves flowing through poses with breath and intention. Our Vinyasa yoga classes are often designed with a specific focus or intention and can vary in pace, style, and level of intensity.
At Yoga Malta Vinyasa yoga classes are designed to gradually open up the body, with each sequence building upon the previous one, allowing you to evolve into deeper and more advanced postures as your practice unfolds.
Our Vinyasa yoga class will include a range of standing, seated, and supine poses, twists, balancing postures, forward folds, inversions, backbends, and targeted core strengthening exercises. We also offer guided meditation, chanting, or breathwork, and all classes will end in a state of utter relaxation in Corpse Pose or “Savasana.”
