Vinyasa ~ flow, synchronicity of breath and movement.
The result is a sequence of breath and movement, that leads through the asanas of the several Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga series in a certain order.
Legends say, that Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and his teacher Sri T. Krishnamacharya rediscovered the science of Vinyasa in an old scripture "Yoga Korunta" from Rishi Vamana. Rishi Vamanas famous words are:
"Oh Yogi! Do not practise Asana without Vinyasa."
The effect of the Vinyasa technique on the physical level becomes visible in all the other limbs of the eightfold path of classical Yoga.
