“Vinyasa” is a Sanskrit term which can be broken into two parts: nyasa, which means “to place”, and vi which means “in a special way. ” Vinyasa Yoga is a very popular style of yoga that is characterised by linking postures into a specific arrangement, while simultaneously co-ordinating movement with breath. It is frequently referred to as flow yoga since practitioners often feel a flowing quality once sufficient strength and balance has been attained. It is a very strong, powerful practice yet offers an equally graceful element.
Yinyasa yoga was derived from the Ashtanga Vinyasa system; the key difference being that the Ashtanga Vinyasa system (all 6 series), as taught by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, are set sequences which cannot be altered while vinyasa yoga sequences will always differ since teachers have freedom to designed different classes with different themes and intentions. Vinyasa yoga classes are an expression of a teacher’s creativity and each class highlights the uniqueness of each individual teacher.
What differentiates a good vinyasa teacher from an amazing teacher; the ability to design brilliant sequences and themed classes.
