The Sanskrit word Vinyasa means "to place" (vi) "in a specific way" (nyasa). In a vinyasa style practice one of the fundamental principles is in what way poses are linked and connected.
The vinyasa style has been influenced strongly and many concepts have been borrowed from the way Krishnamacharya taught yoga in 1930's India. Sri K. Patthabi Jois Ashtanga Vinyasa tradition popularised this approach of connecting breath, movement (vinyasa) and asana in the early 90's when a few (well known) ashtanga inspired teachers would take the first steps of leading classes based solely on the idea of "vinyasa".
We explore the connection between the poses, which are linked together to create the dynamics of the class, as well as the variations that promote creativity and in- sight.
Vinyasa serves as the methodology to link the intention to the desired effect.
The sequencing for classes are based on principles found in Primary, Secondary, Third and Fourth series of Ashtanga Yoga - leading class towards a peak pose (specific challenging pose) . Each class also has anatomical themes such as hips, knees, twists, arm balances, etc.
Each class level includes chanting, breathing/pranayama, asana, meditation, savasana.
