This information is dedicated to Sri Tirumalai Krishnamacharya, Pattabhi Jois and B.K.S Iyengar.
Quick fact: Pattabhi Jois has often said that the concept of vinyasa came from an ancient text called the Yoga Kuruntha. This text has vanished and no one living has seen it.
"Let the body become soft like the snow. Let it flow like water and be as light as air. Move through shapes and forms in a flowing state of grace. Gifts of light from flowering souls to all that is divine." by

Vinyasa Teacher Tips
If you are a yoga teacher you can hold the standing yoga positions
such as Triangle and Extended side angle for a little while the
first time around to touch upon alignment issues. Then you can flow through the Vinyasa with the breath without pausing. See more about yoga teaching techniques.
breathing is always quite challenging as the mind has a tendency to
jump ahead. Patience and tranquility allow insight and unity with
breath, this allows us flow through Vinyasa Yoga sequences and be
light with the body.
Often the breath is held when entering a yoga position. The mind is
easily distracted and it is hard to stay fixed on the breathing.
Balance and control is needed. Seek a smooth breath, feel good
alignment, empty and still the mind then fill it with light.
