The Meaning of "Vinyasa":
Vinyasa has many interpretations, but for the purpose of Vinyasa as a yoga practice, the definition of "sequence" seems the most fitting. Indeed, Vinyasa practices are well thought out sequences of postures flowing from one to the next with ease. This is great for people wanted a fast-paced class with little down time.
Standard Vinyasa Elements:
A "standard" Vinyasa class could be described as follows. The class would start with cat/cow to warm up then flow through 5 rounds Sun Salutation A, 5 rounds of Sun Salutation B, 5 rounds of Warrior Dance, standing postures, core and cool down. That being said most instructors create their own sequences, creating truly unique experiences. While I start with a standard vinyasa sequence for beginners, there is nothing I love more than adding my own twists and challenges as they advance and discover their limits.
The practice is rigorous -- burning more calories than any form of yoga, with the average woman burning 550 calories per hour. The constant movement increases cardio while the postures cause the muscles to burn. Instructors typically use upbeat music to keep the temp and energy levels of the class on point. If you here an intense, energetic song -- get ready!
Breath Work, or Pranayama, is incredibly important in Vinyasa yoga. Each single movement should be linked to a single breath, setting the pace for the class. The traditional pranayama for Vinyasa is called Ujjayi. This is an even breath through the nose, typically starting with 4 counts on the inhale and 4 counts on the exhale. The Ujjayi breath is often called the "victorious breath" as a slight constriction in the throat makes it audible, and as many teachers like to say, "the breath is victorious when it becomes louder than your thoughts".
