Vinyasa Yoga

Vinyasa Yoga is a style of yoga that focuses on linking breath and movement. Vinyasa practice features a series of standing, seated, inverted, and balancing postures to increase strength, flexibility, and mental discipline. The practice is concluded by a short meditation (approximately 5 minutes long) called Savasana. Participants can expect to sweat as well as relax in this style of yoga.

The hour long yoga class was held on Monday October 5th, 2009. The class was open to faculty, staff and SCAVMA students at OSU-CVM and had 40 participants from the college who attended. It was led by third year veterinary student Michelle Cook at the RPAC.
