Yoga Vinyassa Flow

Vinyasa yoga, in which movement is synchronized to the breath, is a term that covers a broad range of yoga classes. The breath becomes an important component because the teacher will instruct you to move from one pose to the next on an inhale or an exhale. Vinyasa is literally translated from Sanskrit as meaning "connection". In terms of yoga asana, we can interpret this as a connection between movement and breath.
