Vinyasa is a practice of physical and spiritual development related to the father of Modern Yoga, Shri Tirumalai Krishnamacharya.
The Sanskrit Term “Vinyasa” is compound of “Nyasa” To Place and “Vi” In A Special Way.
It’s a systematic method also considered a “Moving Meditation”, and it is about harmony and balance, grace and fluidity. By integrating the functions of the mind, body and breath in the same time frame, the practitioner would experience the real joy of yoga.
Each posture (Asana) is practice and connected to the next one by a succession of specific transitional movements, synchronised with the breath. The mind closely follow the slow and smooth deliberated Ujjayi Yogic Breath, and the yoking of body and mind takes place.
How we enter, exit or stay in a posture, it reflects the way we do things in life. Through watching ourselves moving, the wisdom is revealed. “How” we move takes on a greater importance than “What” we are doing.
In Vinyasa we move together to support one another. This reflection reminds us, we are all in this together.
