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.”

What is Vinyasa Yoga?
Vinyasa Yoga combines yoga postures in carefully sculpted patterns with breathing and prayers. In Vinyasa Yoga sequences of yoga postures are performed in artistic ways that balance and counter balance the body. The form, movement and breath are integrated into flow.
The breathing is quite often neglected in yoga classes and more focus is placed on alignment. It is best to know how to do the yoga poses before you learn the breathing otherwise there is just too much to focus on. When we focus intensely he breath is often ignored or becomes labored. Vinyasa yoga is the art of moving through postures with the breath and allowing the breathing to lead the way. In a yoga class this is often done with the yoga teachers signals so to truly move with your own natural breathing you must practice in harmony with your own breath.
