Prasara yoga is a new style of yoga that blends elements of traditional asana, or poses, along with elements of movement, or flow. Most modern forms of yoga concentrate on one of two aspects: asana, the actual poses, or vinyasa, transitional breathing between poses. Prasara yoga integrates both of those aspects, and expresses them through dynamic movement.

Prasara yoga is comprised of 5 basic forms, known as flows. Each flow is carefully designed to strengthen and tone a specific area of the body, while all 5 flows work seamlessly together to strengthen the overall core of the body, improving balance, flexibility, and muscle tone. Rather than trying to hold asanas for extended periods of time, emphasis is instead placed on coordinated breathing and fluid transitions between each flow.

Progressing through all 5 flows takes only 15 minutes, but provides a complete, low impact, total body workout. Although prasara is more athletically challenging than other forms of yoga, each flow is designed with 3 levels of difficulty: beginner, intermediate, and advanced. The beginner flows can be completed by people of all ages and skill levels, while intermediate is best suited for people who have prior experience in other styles of yoga. Advanced level is obviously the most challenging workout, but certainly attainable to anyone with enough practice and dedication.

Prasara yoga is a unique form of yoga in that it focuses on movement and flow in addition to asana and vinyasa. Structure, breathing, and movement are the defining elements of prasara; these elements work together in synergy to promote a healthier, more balanced body.
