Vinyasa Flow

“Vinyasa is, I believe, one of the richest concepts to emerge from yoga for the successful conduct of our actions and relationships.” – Desikachar, Krishnamacharya’s son.

“Vinyasa” is derived from the Sanskrit term nyasa, which means “to place,” and the prefix vi, “in a special way”. In the practice of physical yoga (asana) the most common understanding of vinyasa is as a flowing sequence of specific asanas coordinated with the movements of the breath. Thus, vinyasa practice also known as “breath-synchronized movement.” The practice on vinyasa series will move you through the power of inhaling and exhaling within the poses.  Vinyasa movements are smoothly flowing and almost dance-like, which explains why it is sometimes referred to as Vinyasa Flow.

The six series of Pattabhi Jois’s Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga are by far the best known and most influential. Jois’s own teacher, Krishnamacharya, championed the vinyasa approach as central to the transformative process of yoga. But Krishnamacharya had a broader vision of the meaning of vinyasa. He saw vinyasa as a method that could be applied to all the aspects of yoga. In Krishnamacharya’s teachings, the vinyasa method included assessing the needs of the individual student (or group) and then building a complementary, step-by-step practice to meet those needs. Beyond this, Krishnamacharya also emphasized vinyasa as an artful approach to living, a way of applying the skill and awareness of yoga to all the rhythms and sequences of life, including self-care, relationships, work, and personal evolution.
