Vinyasa yoga is a flowing, dynamic sequence of poses and is one of the most popular styles of yoga in the United States. This type of practice involves synchronizing the breath with a continuous flow of postures. The fluid, almost dance-like movements increase flexibility, strength, and stamina, as it calms the mind and improves overall health. The literal translation of the Sanskrit word “vinyasa” is “to place in a certain way.” It refers to a certain sequence of poses that are performed in a particular order. Today, it also refers to the style of yoga that focuses on breathing in conjunction with body movement.
The steady and continuous flow of postures builds internal heat, which can help to detoxify the body. This yoga style’s fast-paced and athletic, strength-building approach also helps to improve cardiovascular and respiratory health, and increase bone density. Many practitioners also discover reduced stress and improved sleep. The constant and continual awareness of the breath while you move through the poses calms the mind and increases focus. Vinyasa is often considered a “moving meditation.” Many practitioners discover that the ability to “flow” through a challenging yoga class has benefits off the mat, as well — resulting in a greater ability to “ride the waves” of life with more ease and focus.
