Press Release (ePRNews.com) - RISHIKESH, India - Nov 14, 2016 - Vinyasa Yoga often considered as a dynamic style of yoga which requires the practitioner to keep the mind focused. Focusing keeps you from getting distracted and diverted and helps you to be present in your body. ‘Vi’ means ‘in a special way’ and ‘Nyasa’ means ‘to place.’ Thus, Vinyasa means to place your body or posture in a special/pre-defined way to practice yoga. This style of yoga was first practiced and popularized by K. Pattabhi Jois as ‘classical Indian yoga.’ In this manner, the practitioner transits from one pose to another in a connected flow.
Vinyasa style of yoga includes 4 things:-
1. Body movement and its linking with breath.
2. Breath-synchronized body movements that take place in transition, .i.e. from one pose to another.
3. A personal way of thinking and intention of deciding to do yoga practice.
4. A certain type of yoga class.
Importance of breath in Vinyasa yoga
Pattabhi Jois recommended- to remain in a pose for at least 5 to 8 breaths or for as much time as possible. If you want to count by seconds, then you can inhale for 10 seconds and then exhale for 10 seconds. If your breathing is strong, then you can inhale and exhale for 15 or more seconds. You can do this breathing exercise as many times as you wish. Ensure that you breathe fully and with a closed mouth. This is also known as Ujjayi breathing.
The length of one inhale or exhale dictates the amount of time spent in transitioning from one pose to another in various asanas. Attention is paid to the breath and its journey between the asanas.
Muscles locking in Vinyasa yoga
An important aspect of Vinyasa yoga is ‘bandha’ or muscle locking, which assists in retaining a pose and moving in and out of it. There are 3 bandhas namely Mula Bandha, Uddiyana Bandha and Jalandhara Bandha.
Benefits of regular Vinyasa yoga practice
1. Calms down- The steady and repetitive cycle of inhaling and exhaling provides a calm, peaceful mental effect.
2. Purifies body- The continuous movement in the body while transiting from one pose to another creates internal heat, resulting in sweating. This cleanses the body free of toxins.
3. Keeps you in the present- The whole exercise keeps continuing one after another making you feel the present moment.
