Vinyasa Flow Yoga

<< return to a to z of yoga


Vinyasa Flow Yoga synchronises the breath with movement for a dynamic, flowing practice. You'll move from one pose to the next as you an inhale or exhale, flowing smoothly through the class. Classes often start with sun salutations, a vigorous series of poses to warm the body.

Good to Know

The pace and sequence will vary with the teacher, but in general, you can expect a pretty dynamic practice.

You'll move around a lot, so wear something comfortable that easily absorbs sweat.

Who's it for?

Vinyasa Flow classes are generally fairly challenging, so a basic level of fitness is a must.

Origins

Vinyasa Flow Yoga was derived from the Ashtanga Yoga system. Some of the best known Vinyasa Flow teachers include Shiva Rea, Seane Corn, Jason Crandell, Louisa Sear, Claire Missingham,
