Vinyasa Flow Yoga Directory

Welcome to the Yoga Journal Vinyasa Flow Yoga Directory page. In this section you will find yoga studios, retreat centers, and teachers who specialize or incorporate Vinyasa Flow Yoga into their practice and philosophy.

Vinyasa Flow Yoga is a style of yoga that concentrates on a dynamic connecting posture that then creates a flow between the more traditional yoga poses. Through breath, the movement of the posture and the time the posture is held can be determined. Vinyasa Flow is a variation of the Sun Salutation or Sūrya namaskāra and this entire practice can be characterized by six series of postures that are always done in the same order and are shared with special breathing called ujjāyī breathing . The purpose of this style of yoga is to create heat within the body which then leads to sweating and ultimately purification of the body. Vinyasa Flow Yoga can improve flexibility and strength with a reduced risk of injury.

Yoga Teacher Lydia Henkel-Moellmann

Upon graduating college and moving to New York in 2008, yoga became an integral part in Lydia's life as a means of excercise, balance, self care and release from an otherwise incredibly hectic and unrelenting schedule.  After taking time in 2014 to travel, she relocated to the Bay Area and realized it was finally time to go through a teacher trianing program. In 2016, Lydia completed her 200-hr yoga teacher certification at Hot Spot's Yoga in Oakland, CA.

Teaching yoga for over 18 years, Lyn was the first to bring Power Yoga to the area. While her personal practice began with Ashtanga and she still stays grounded in the foundational elements of that practice, Bryan Kest and Baron Baptiste have both been a guiding force behind her teaching. She is grateful to both for encouraging her to trust and listen to her own internal voice of wisdom. Eventually leading her to what she calls Buddhi Power Yoga, a “user-friendly” yoga guided by intuition and breath.

As women on a mission, it’s easy to pass the day in a sea of to-do’s. But when we're going through the motions, we can lose the purposefulness, the excitement, the goosebumps… those pieces of us that drove us in the first place. Our power. Our vitality. Ourselves.

Yoga is the interweaving and connection of mind, body, and breath.  Finding and consciously creating a balanced relationship between these components has not been easy or simple.  However, the closer I come to finding this equilibrium, and the more presently aware I am as I listen to my senses, the deeper I discover my practice and therefore, myself.  Yoga has helped create free space not only in my physical body, but within.  It is easier to step back, observe, and release from the stresses, anxieties, and restlessness that is unavoidably present in ou
