Vinyasa Yoga is both a great place to start for beginners and for those seeking a continued challenge. If you like to focus on the power of breathing and flowing movement through poses, you will enjoy the Vinyasa style. Vinyasa yoga synchronizes movement to the breath. This style is also called flow yoga because of the smooth way that the poses run together. The breath becomes an important component as you move from one pose to the next on an inhale or an exhale. Vinyasa is literally translated as meaning "connection.”
Like all styles of yoga, Vinyasa has both mental and physical benefits. The synchronized breathing relaxes your mind and helps to release any blockage of energy flow throughout your body.
