Vinyasa means "breath-synchronized movement," and Vinyassa yoga
is a series of poses that will move you through the power of inhaling and
exhaling. Vinyasa movements are smoothly flowing and almost dance-like, which
explains why it is sometimes referred to as Vinyasa Flow or just Flow.
Like all styles of yoga, Vinyasa has both mental and physical benefits.
Physically, sweat expels toxins and re-energizes your body. Mentally, the
synchronized breathing relaxes your mind and helps to release any blockage of
energy flow throughout your body.
