Yoga style #2… Vinyasa


Let’s dive into the wonderful world of Vinyasa yoga!

Vinyasa is sequential movement that interlinks postures to form a continuous flow. It creates a movement meditation that reveals all forms as being impermanent and for this reason are not held on to.

Most yoga styles focus on the breath and this style just takes this idea and uses it in a flow to create a practice. A vinyasa sequence would be something like a Sun Salutation.  Here is a video that I found that explains in depth a sun salutation.

Following your breath to the movement is beneficial for many reasons. It can be used to reduce stress, improve lung capacity, and so much more, but that’s a whole new post. For now just follow your breath and hope to see you on the mat.

Namaste.
