“The practice of Zen is forgetting the self in the act of uniting with something.”

– Koun Yamada


Origins of Vinyasa Yoga

Imagine for a moment the flow of the seasons, the rise and fall of the ocean tides in response to the moon, or even perhaps the unfolding of a lotus flower.  Each of these events has a pattern: they are all vinyasas, progressive sequences that unfold with unspoken intelligence and harmony. "Vinyasa" is derived from the Sanskrit term nyasa, which means "to place," and the prefix vi, "in a special way".  In the context of yoga, the most common understanding of vinyasa is a flowing sequence of specific asanas coordinated with the movements of the breath.
