Vinyasa

The word vinyasa comes from Sanskrit words Nyasa which means ‘to place’ and Vi ‘in a specific way’. Vinyasa style practices are based on the specifically sequenced flows. The practice resembles to a story, it has a theme/focus, an opening/introduction, a development towards the focus, and a closing parts. It has either a peak pose where the practice progresses towards, or a focus theme, which the practice builds around. Vinyasa is a vigorous flowing practice, based on the proper alignment and breath/movement connection. Practice, while helping the body to become stronger, more flexible and in balance, mentally as the breath/movement connection progresses, the mind becomes calmer, clearer, more focused.
