Vinyasa Yoga

Vinyasa Yoga is a style of yoga ( similar kind Ashtanga yoga and Bikram yoga). In this style of yoga, yoga and breathing exercise is used and compiles speed of breath. This yoga is also a kind of spiritual process.

What is Vinyasa Yoga –

Vinyasa yoga also known as the Vinyasa flow, it is a set of three asanas (postures) – Parvatasana, Bhujangasan, and Kumbhakasana. These asanas effectively make every part of the body stronger. This yoga indicates the need to accept changes in breath and the speed of breathing is accelerated in this yoga, which is beneficial both physically and mentally.

The word Vinyasa is derived from the Sanskrit words, In which Nyasa means “to place,” and the prefix Vi means “in a special way” OR ‘to place in a special manner’. 

The beginning of the Vinyasa yoga by a saint named Tirumala Krishnamacharya ( the great South Indian master). He told that- When doing Vinyasa yoga and getting out of yoga, the action of breathing is great importance. In the practice of Vinyasa yoga, synchronize the body with breath, and feel in a pose. he also saw Vinyasa as a method that could be applied to all the aspects of yoga.

Desikachar, Krishnamacharya’s son, has written, For the successful organizing of our work, Vinyasa is one of the richest concepts by yoga. “

As a philosophy, Vinyasa recognizes the best nature of things.  We enter into a posture, are there for a while and then leave.

Vinyasa classes offer a variety of postures, but two Vinyasa classes are rarely identical. Because the main distinction of Vinyasa is the order of the postures that often changes.

Why Vinyasa Yoga Known As “Vinyasa Flow Yoga”

In Vinyasa yoga Ujjayi breathing is practised, it connects breath between two Asana; That why Vinyasa yoga is also known as ‘flow yoga’.

In another way- Vinyasa is a series of Asanas, which helps in breathing faster and beyond. This type of yoga known as Vinyasa flow.

Vinyasa yoga V/S Hatha yoga

Now, we will discuss the differences between Vinyasa flow and Hatha styles of yoga. The best knowledge of Vinyasa and Hatha will help keep a lifelong practice of yoga fully beneficial. And both styles are equally important to us. We cannot have the same practice every single day.

The main difference between persistence and Vinaya Yoga is the speed and goal of practice. Vinyasa yoga is a workout, which is synonymous with the breath, a posture (Mudra)is coordinated in the second posture (Mudra), which increases the body heat. On the other hand, Hatha yoga is a powerful tool that brings our attention to our breath which helps in fluctuations of the mind. And the soul has created to align and calm. That is a soft movement in which focus is given on breathing and flowing.

Vinyasa Yoga is a Types or Style of Yoga

You want to know about the types or style of yoga before starting. Most styles of yoga are based on the same basic yoga posture (called asana), which has many different postures. However, one posture can be different then the other posture. In this topic we will tell you about the style of yoga, in which Vinaya Yoga is one.


What is Vinyasa Krama

The name comes from the Sanskrit, where Vi, meaning “order,” Nyasa, meaning “placement,” and karma, meaning “succession.”

As we read above – Vinyasa is the synchronization of breath and movement. And krama is step by step to move forward.

Most commonly, Vinyasa Krama is step-by-step progress from simple posture to the advanced posture. In this posture, the yogi’s physically and mentally body is prepared for a more advanced posture.

When you do Vinyasa Krama, you prepare yourself for a simple posture to go into a more complex posture.

“Vinyasa’’ vs “Ashtanga Yoga” OR Is Vinyasa “Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga”?

As mentioned above, the beginning of the Vinyasa Yoga is T. Krishnamacharya. Or we can say that T. Krishnamacharya gave the new look to Vinaya.

He taught K. Pattaboi Jois Vinayasa, but not Ashtanga. Later Pattaboy Joyce founded Ashtanga Yoga, which included Surya Namaskar A & B.

Therefore, Vinyasa gave order before Ashtanga. Both Ashtanga and Vinayas use Surya Namaskar to heat the body. Though these are both independent exercises. The practice of Ashtanga Yoga is done through primary, secondary series, whereas Vinyasa is the synchronization of breath and movement.
