At i am yoga, students discover skills they may never have known they had, such as touching their toes and standing on their heads. Movements like these teach them to focus their minds and look deep into their hearts, where compassion awaits when balance falters. Vinyasa routines fuel this process of self-discovery, welcoming students of all abilities with dance-like sequences of ancient poses and deep-breathing exercises. The temperature rises to 85–90 degrees during Warm Vinyasa’s sun salutations, loosening muscles, deepening stretches, and melting pocket-dwelling ice packs that are unnecessary anyway. Music synchronizes breaths and movement as muscles gain strength, stamina, and flexibility.
