Vinyasa yoga is a set of yoga poses that focus on inhaling and exhaling. Often referred to as vinyasa flow or just flow, it is a smooth, dance-like and rhythmic form of yoga.
Vinyasa yoga has both mental and physical benefits, as it works to re-energize the body. Synchronized breathing is used to relax the mind, while the physical moves are meant to expel toxins through sweat. Vinyasa is a good option for yoga beginners and can be practiced at all ranges of difficulty. Sun salutations are one of the most common poses, but the sequences can vary depending on the instructor and the difficulty level.
