Multidisciplinary Flow Yoga. This is a challenging form of Yoga that is structured to be accessible to diverse levels of physical ability. “Integral” is in reference to integrative teachers and thinkers (T. Krishnamacharya, Sri Aurobindo, Ken Wilbur). “Vinyasa” in this application is derived from the Ashtanga Vinyasa system of K.P. Jois, which is the template for Vinyasa. In preparing practice, expect a similar workout intensity as an Ashtanga primary series class. However, in this class there will be more variation in range of motion, variety of Asana, and progressive sequencing. This is a fun and engaging synthesis of the many variants of Vinyasa or Flow Yoga.
Geoffrey Taylor is a Vinyasa Yoga teacher from Flagstaff who began practicing there as a child and teaching there years later in 1998. The next year he began classes in Sedona. Starting soon after that he was invited to teach around the US and abroad while maintaining Northern AZ as a base. In 2005 he started using Integral Vinyasa as the title to his classes, based on synthesizing the various forms of Vinyasa: Ashtanga, flow yoga, power yoga, etc. In 2006 he Created and opened the Northern Arizona Yoga Center in Flagstaff. The next ten years of teaching were spent refining his system and method, training teachers, and collaborating on several Yoga projects around the globe. Geoffrey is a teacher that inspires all levels of students and abilities, yet his classes are difficult and therefore rewarding. Students are taught compassion instead of competition, which leads to greater levels of health, wellness, and awareness. He is grateful to be training teachers and offering weekly AM classes in Sedona, and grateful to the outstanding Yoga community here.
