Overview of Vinyasa Hatha yoga
Vinyasa Yoga, is the Sanskrit word meaning connection and hatha meaning is union. Hatha Yoga as an ancient science has been practiced in the east for millennia to promote physical and spiritual health. It can be practiced beneficially in some form by everyone. Popularised in the west during the sixties it is now blossoming under many names, such as Astanga, Eight Limbed and Vinyasa.
The disciplines cover movement, breathing, stillness and supporting “well-being” on every level. We realise increasingly that health doesn’t happen on the physical level alone. Hatha yoga is the original source from which all other styles of yoga are drawn.
More recently Vinyasa has also been called flow yoga because of the smooth way that the poses run together, it is one of the most popular contemporary styles of yoga. It's a broad classification that encompasses many different types of yoga, including Ashtanga and power yoga.
