It is more like an energetic dance that is focused on the power of inhaling, exhaling and synchronized breathing. Since it is done in quick succession without breaks and the sequence changes from class to class (instructor typically focus on working a specific goal in each class), it is perfect for students – both beginners and advanced – with short attention spans.

It also helps to provide correct alignment in the postures.
