What is Frog Lotus Vinyāsa Flow Yoga?

2 minutes

Frog Lotus Yoga (FLY) vinyāsa flow is a style of yoga that combines the traditional principles of vinyāsa yoga with the creative and intelligent approach of founder FLY Vidya Heisel. It’s a dynamic and flowing practice that is designed to challenge and invigorate the body, mind, and spirit.

A typical FLY class will begin with a prāṇāyāma (breath work) practice to calm the mind and prepare the body for movement. The class will then warm up the major joints of the body, before moving into Sūrya Namaskār (sun salutations), which are a foundational sequence that links the breath to movements. From there, the class will progress through a variety of standing, seated, and inverted āsana, or poses – remembering that an inversion is any time the head is below the heart, so not just headstands & handstands.

Students are guided through the āsana, offered options and alternatives for their expression of each posture to ensure safety and alignment. Throughout class, students are encouraged to remain mindful of their experience that day, and connect their breath to their movements, as this helps to create a smooth & flowing practice that is both energising and calming.

Cues will be offered to help students focus their attention on the present moment and cultivate a sense of awareness & mindfulness. FLY vinyāsa flow yoga is a great way to improve your physical fitness, flexibility, and strength. It can also help to reduce stress, improve your mood, and boost your overall well-being.
