More About Vinyasa Yoga
During the physical practice of asanas (yoga postures) the focus is on the breath while the body moves in harmony with the breath, so the practice becomes unique to the individuals own rhythm. The practice of asanas and pranayama (breathing technique) develops lean muscle, along with balanced strength and suppleness to allow greater range of movement in the joints, helping to prevent injuries and improve posture. This practice cultivates mindfulness of breathing, develops body awareness and control of the mind to induce calmness and tranquillity reducing everyday stresses. Yoga postures and pranayama improve the arterial, capillary, venous and lymphatic circulation throughout the body facilitating the removal of toxic and bacterial waste. Increased fresh blood flow provides efficient utilisation of energy while promoting well being and resistance to ill health. The Sanskrit word Vinyasa means breath synchronised movement.
