Vinyasa is a style of yoga characterized by stringing postures together so that you move from one to another, seamlessly, using breath. Commonly referred to as “flow” yoga.

Vinyasa (pronounced “vin-yah-sah”) meaning “to place in a special way”, comes from is a Sanskrit word referring to a sequence of poses, as in Hatha. Vinyasa is popular for its fluid and intensive movement practices. Teachers often choreograph their classes and aid their student to transition smoothly from one pose to another. Most often, classes are accompanied by music to keep the mood upbeat. The intensity of its exertion is similar to Ashtanga. However, it is important to note that no two vinyasa classes are ever the same. The opposite would be “fixed forms” such as Bikram Yoga, which features the same 26 postures plus 2 breathing exercise in every class, or Ashtanga which has the same sequence every time.

Heated Hot Vinyasa yoga is ideally practised in a room heated to approximately 30 to 35 degrees Celsius, depending on the studio.
