Yoga comes in many different styles, and practices. From slow restorative, and long yin pose to fast paced workout style classes. When I first started teaching yoga my classes were fast paced power flows. That’s just my fiery nature. Even now, it’s one of my favorite formats to teach. Follow along with me in this 15 minute vinyasa yoga flow sequence.
Vinyasa flow isn’t typically something beginners do. so bear that in mind if you just started your yoga practice. It’s a rhythmic flowing practice with the breath. If you’re looking for a workout that pairs strength and flexibility then give this a try!

Vinyasa Yoga Flow Sequence
When teaching a vinyasa yoga flow sequence, I like to layer. My mentor likened it to the 12 days of christmas. Start with A-B-C, repeat and add on D. Then repeat A-B-C-D and add on E. And so on, until you reach the ‘final version’. Or, the proverbial 12th day and end up with everything in one sequence.
In this 15 minute vinyasa yoga flow sequence we explore poses like warrior 2, side angle, downward facing dog and reverse warrior. Along with the gentle vinyasa flow we do planks, to work on strength as well as flexibility.
As a fan of quick but frequent workouts throughout the day ,this class is sure to be a regular in your fitness routine. Whether morning, evening, or as a midday energy boost this class works for them all. What are you waiting for? Press play today!

- Do you use yoga as a workout?
- Did you think yoga was just about flexibility?
- Have you used canva before?
Except for some of the downward facing positions that I think I saw, this vinyasa yoga flow sequence reminds me a lot of my Dad’s tai chi routine he would do often in the morning in the yard! I have to say for 15 minutes this routine would definitely get my joints a great stretch and open up my flexibility!
Very close relationship to yoga and martial arts so not surprised there are overlaps.
I use pretty similar sequence in my daily life. I prefer power yoga to flexibility yoga because my body likes it more and my mind feel more powered up after
Yes! I feel stronger when I do vinyasa yoga too!
Haha I enjoy yoga and Canva! Also, I was going to comment on your new imagery before you mentioned Canva premium. They look great! Thanks for the sequence, as well. 🙂
Thanks for the kind words. Funny, I loved doing the images but boy was it a lot of work. Sometimes it just doesn’t cooperate! Love Canva though!
This looks doable though I am somewhat new. I would love to try this out. Thank you for sharing the tutorial video. Super appreciate it.
Give it a try! It’s 15 minutes long. What’s stopping you?
I have not tried Yoga, but I have started to struggle with my mobility and my GP has recommended I try it
Definitely start slow. We should all be so lucky to get a ‘prescription’ for yoga!
Ooh, I’ve always wanted to give yoga a try! I’ll definitely be watching your video and trying to join in at home 🙂
Tons of short videos on my YouTube channel!
I will probably need to work myself up to this advance yoga workout. I am still a beginner so it is good to see where I can get to.
Definitely. Try 5 minutes and work up from there!
Thank you so much for sharing this! 15 minutes is the perfect length of time for a flow at home (I don’t know about you, but I really can’t focus on exercise for longer than that when I’m working out at home, there are so many distractions and things to do!) x
Completely agree. Too many distractions! Plus if I’m on the floor too long I start to notice all the dust bunnies and dog hair that needs vacuuming!

When I clicked on this post I thought, “uh, why I have never heard the word ‘vinyasa’ before?” – then I read that it’s something beginners do, so I guess I’m still a beginner when it comes to yoga, hah! I’ll have to save this for later and try it once I’ve picked up yoga again more regularly
Vinyasa just means movement and breath. Beginners generally just do static holding of poses. Vinyasa can be slow or fast, cool or hot. Honestly just give it a try, it’s 15 minutes.
This is a great resource for people like me who are looking to try to work more yoga into our daily schedule. I have a lot on the go at home, making it difficult to just up and head to a class. However, I can find a 15 minute break throughout the day with the convenience of following a video at home! Thank you for sharing.
Exactly Britt! 15 minute sessions are a great way to break up the routine of working from home.

I do yoga a couple of times a week at home and have found I’m much more flexible and it’s very rare I have any joint pain now. I’d love to try hot yoga once it feels safer to go back to classes. For now I’ll stick to my lounge yoga mat.
Yep, gonna be a while before public classes are open I think
I need to improve my upper strength for sure and also could do with some more flex so will try this out hun xx
Yoga is great for both of those! Give it a try!
I have practiced hatha yoga. I will try your vinyasa flow sequence as the poses look great.
You’re in luck, I trained in hatha! This is just hatha flow 🙂

Thanks. Care to share the reasons? lol!
I do use yoga and I find it really helps my strength and flexibility plus gives me some peaceful me time. Will be trying out this yoga flow sequence when I can, thanks.
awesome! Let me know how you like it!
This workout sounds likeit would be ideal for me. I’m looking to improve both my strength and flexibility.
Definitely! Great for both. Let me know if you give it a try!
I haven’t used yoga as a workout before but it is something I am considering. I do use Canva, I love it.
Yoga is a great compliment to a workout regime. And, yes! Canva is amazing isn’t it!
This is great, I love yoga and definitely love all these moves, I use yoga as a relaxtion tool than anyting else.
Many times, me too! I take a lot of ‘extended savasana’ yoga sessions!
