“Vinyasa” means breath synchronized movement. The breath is the heart of this discipline, and links asana to asana in a precise order. By synchronizing movement with breathing and practicing Mula and Uddiyana Bandhas (locks), an intense internal heat is produced. This heat purifies muscles and organs, expelling unwanted toxins. The breath regulates the vinyasa and ensures efficient circulation of blood. The result is a light strong body.
