Vinyasa also called flow because of the smooth way that the poses run together, is one of the most popular contemporary styles of yoga. Vinyasa classes string poses together to make a sequence. In Vinyasa yoga, each movement is synchronized to a breath. The breath is given primacy, acting as an anchor as you move from one pose to the next. It is a form of moving meditation as you learn to still the mind, bringing focus to the breath, body, and movement. It is the union of poses and breath, sequenced for dynamic flowing movement of the body. Classes vary, offering practitioners a new experience each time they step onto the mat.
