What is Vinyasa Yoga?
Vinyasa Yoga is a method of yoga practised wherein the Asanas are practised in a specific order developed by Sri T Krishnamacharya. It is not just the sequence of Asanas put together, rather every single asana has its own specific sequence to follow and then a proper sequencing of asanas and finally the proper sequencing of asana families to complete the entire practice of Vinyasa Yoga. This method of practice is called “Vinyasa Krama“.
Tristhana is a three-fold practice element in Vinyasa wherein the specific Asana, Breath, and Drishti are leading the practice.
The Asana referring to Annamaya Kosha, Breath to Pranamaya Kosha and Drishti to Manomaya Kosha.
This three-fold practice is a traditional way of Vinyasa Yoga practice leading to the practice of Bandha, to Dhyana at later stages.
Teacher Training Approach
At Samyak Yoga, the entire Vinyasa Yoga practice is designed following the Vinyasa Yoga Tradition. If you are looking for fitness-based Vinyasa Flow or some dance form based modern flow practices in the name of Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training, this course is not for you.
During Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training, we work on practising the traditional Vinyasa Yoga as it is.
