What does Vinyasa mean?
The term vinyasa is a composition of two words. Nyasa has several meanings like “to place”, “special order”, and “attention”, “and vi, which means “specially”. Vinyasa has many meanings in the Sanskrit language, however, in the context of yoga, Vinyasa can be best interpreted as
It is often interpreted as a practice with a theme or purposes consisting of poses linked and associated together. Vinyasa, written with lowercase, usually refers to the progression and continuity between the asanas. In Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, the fluid transitions from one pose to the other, the famous jump-backs and jump-throughs are referred to as vinyasa.
Fundamentals of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga
Breathe: The most important part of the Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is the system of breathing which should be rhythmic and deep-felt from your throat with inhalation and exhalation from the nose. The sound of breath has to be like a sleeping baby makes that is hissing sound. The breathing felt from the throat is called Ujjayi ( Sanskrit word) breathing which means victorious breathing.
Vinyasa: One of the unique parts adjoined and assimilated with Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is vinyasa: the synchronization of flow of the posture. It offers you to practice with the continuous and rhythmic flow which supports you to adjust with new posture on the one hand. On the other, it creates more heat on your body which exits toxins out of your body through the medium of perspiration as well as of breathing.
Bandha: The third quint-essential part of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is bandha means a lock. The lock of your throat through lowering your chin slightly while raising the sternum is called Jalandhara Bandha. The squeeze of your abdomen, 2 inches below the navel center is called Uddiyana Bandha, the third one is Mula bandha which is also called root lock at the pelvic floor.
Drishthi : The fourth requisite of the Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga to achieve its optimum benefits is drishti which means to look or gaze at the certain object with the full concentration. The look should be soft. Basically, the focus of your eyes goes to nine points which are as follows:
