Vinyasa Yoga

The term Vinyasa or Vinyasa Flow may cover a wide variety of yoga classes. Vinyasa means a movement synchronized to breath. You move from one pose into the next based on inhale and exhale rhythm. K. Pattabhi Jois created the Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga series, but Ashtanga and Vinyasa differ in one key point. While the asanas are the same, in Vinyasa the practitioner can choose to put them in any order to suit their need or mood, like a freestyle Ashtanga. In traditional Ashtanga, the series are not interrupted and a specific order is followed.

TA Vinyasa class usually incorporates Sun Salutations, flowing from one asana to another while coordinating the breath. Vinyasa is considered to have more movement than just the stretching you might expect in a Hatha class, and has many aerobic benefits. The pace of the class, the incorporation of chanting, and its aerobic intensity depends upon the teacher, since there is no single rulebook.

Vinyasa Yoga is perfect for physically fit students of yoga who like flowing movements and room for individual expression. A Vinyasa flow yoga class may be physically demanding and combine a core strength workout with flexibility and aerobic activity.
