What is Vinyasa Yoga?

Vinyasa yoga is a form of yoga characterized by seamlessly moving from one asana or yoga pose to the next using your breath to guide each movement. During a vinyasa yoga practice, many asanas are performed, creating what is called a “flow.”


In a vinyasa practice, you can expect to move at a faster pace and stay in a constant flow of movements. Vinyasa yoga is mostly unstructured and different flows are practiced each class, which prevents boredom and helps yogis challenge themselves. While many instructors provide modifications, here are some things you should know before trying vinyasa yoga.

  • Athletes
  • Intermediate/Advanced Yogis
  • People with respiratory problems
