Vinyasa flow

Deliberate breathing in flowing postures

Vinyasa Flow or Vinyasa Yoga is more a description of how you yoga than a single yoga practice. Examples of yoga schools that can be included into the Vinyasa family are Ashtanga Vinyasa, Jivamukti and Baptiste Yoga. The basis of Vinyasa is the traditional Hatha Yoga postures (asanas), but there is a difference between the two that is contained in the name. The word “vinyasa” derives from Sanskrit and approximately translates to “to place deliberately, in a special way”. As such, the common denominator for the Vinyasa yoga practices is moving deliberately not only in the postures, but also from posture to posture, combining breathing and movement into a flow. That is to say, postures are sequenced to be performed one after another, and you breathe deliberately in and out with particular movements or whole postures. In this way, postures and breath are combined into a dynamic flow. 


What sets Vinyasa flow apart from particular schools such as Ashtanga Vinyasa is that the postures and sequencing of the class is very much up to the instructor. The only limitation is that the class must be a flow of Hatha Yoga postures in harmony with breath. In consequence, Vinyasa flow is great for those looking for a dynamic yoga class with lots of variation. However, there are a few flows that are generally included in a Vinyasa class. One is the “vinyasa”, which is the sequence chaturanga dandasana – upward facing dog (urdvha mukha svanasana) or cobra (bhujangasana) – downward facing dog (adho mukha svanasana). The other is the sun salutation, which has a few variations but usually includes mountain pose (tadasana) – upward salute (urdvha hastasana) – forward fold (uttanasana) – half forward fold (ardha uttanasana) – vinyasa (as described above) – half forward fold – forward fold – upward salute – mountain pose. At Yogateket, our instructors construct their Vinyasa flow classes after their own interests and expertise, which offers variation among the classes. In other words: there is a Vinyasa flow for every occasion and mood!
