WHAT IS VINYASA YOGA?

Vinyasa Yoga is a method of yoga practiced where in the Asanas are practiced in a specific order. It is not just the sequence of Asanas put together, rather every single asana has its own specific sequence to follow. This method of practice is called “Vinyasa Krama”.

Thristhana is a three-fold practice element in Vinyasa Yoga where in the specific Asana, Breath and Drishti are leading the practice. This three-fold practice is a traditional way of practice leading to the practice of Bandha, to Dhyana at later stages.
