Sound Healing and Yoga
“Vinyasa” is derived from the Sanskrit term nyasa, which means “to place,” and the prefix vi, “in a special way”. Vinyasa is a progression of sequences that unfold with an inherent harmony and intelligence. This may be notes in a song, steps to the top of a 14er, life itself. We view vibrations as the medicine to help us intentionally step into harmony.
