The word “vinyasa” comes from the Sanskrit verb nyasa, which denotes “to place,” and the prefix vi, which signifies “in a special way.” It’s a type of yoga in which you link postures together so you can flow from one to the next while breathing. It is typically called “flow” yoga. 


Vinyasa Yoga is an ancient type of Yoga that connects asana movement with inhalation and expiration of the breath. It is done in a dance-like way where your body serves the movement and your breath serves as the melody. While Vinyasa, extends back thousands of years to the Vedic age, it originally referred to a series, or part of a process, to make something sacred.

T Krishnamacharya, who has had the greatest impact on how yoga is performed now, is claimed to have started the Vinyasa movement practice.T Krishnamacharya goes on to say that the particular parameters of classical yoga come from Patanjali’s Yoga

Sutras:

Consistency (Sthira)

Affordability (Sukha)

Breathing should be calm and deep (Prayatna Sithila)
