Vinyasa yoga is a dynamic form of yoga and is currently the most common style of yoga. Vinyasa is also known as Flow yoga: you can best see it as the coordination of a flow of certain postures on the movement of the breath. You flow as it were from one posture to another in a sequence.
What is Vinyasa yoga and where does it come from?
Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga: the origin
The style stems from Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga. The difference lies in the fixed sets of postures that Pattabi Jois had in mind for Ashtanga yoga. The name comes from Sanskrit and means 'in a special way' (vi) 'places' (Nyasa). Other movements with many powerful yoga postures are Power yoga and Prana yoga. They all originated from Ashtanga.
Postures from the Sun Salutation form the basis of Vinyasa, these are repeated in succession. This is followed by loose asanas, in order to apply variation within the flow.
The positive effect on the body can be experienced on many different levels. Vinyasa is sometimes referred to as aerobic-style yoga, because of the heat generated within the muscle metabolism. That's why you can sweat it all out during a Vinyasa class: you give your body the chance to get rid of toxins and your skin gets a healthy glow.
