The literal translation of the Sanskrit word vinyasa is “to place in a special way.” This definition could be used for all forms of yoga. However vinyasa has come to refer to a specialized yoga that is all about flow and connected movements. Instead of learning isolated poses like many beginners and basic classes do, vinyasa yoga is often a little more fast paced, in that one position or asana is a part of a sequence which flows from pose to pose without pause.
Because of this consistent flow, vinyasa yoga is often suggested as an intermediate level of yoga. It’s important to know the basics before going into the flow of vinyasa. Because asanas quickly transition into each other, one must know the fundamental positioning of most asanas. It is not necessary to have every single pose strictly memorized, but you should feel comfortable in your yoga knowledge.
As opposed to static practice, which involves holding a pose while focusing on the breath, dynamic asana uses the same conscious breathing while moving in and out of different poses. See below for info on some of Pranamaya Yoga Media’s vinyasa yoga DVDs and videos.

Many are familiar with the yin and yang symbol. Diving deeper into these two opposing concepts uncovers their individual meanings. Yang represents the active and changing whereas yin represents the stable and passive. Most yoga falls under the yang category; a constant flow of dynamic movements. However where there is a yang there must be a yin, and yoga is no exception. Yin Yoga is defined by single poses held for minutes at a time.
Yin Yoga focuses on connective tissue in the body, such as ligaments and tendons, which responds better to gentle stress over a long period of time as opposed to shorter, intense working. This mild, persistent stimulation helps improve long-term health and flexibility of the joints, recharge energy, and draw the mind inward into a relaxed, meditative state. A Yin Yoga DVD hosted by one of the style’s master teachers will truly help you find deep understanding and appreciation of this unique practice.
Yin Yoga Experts
At Pranamaya, we have two of the foremostexperts in Yin Yoga on hand. Sarah Powers and Paul Grilley teach Yin Yoga as an equally important supplement to other forms and styles. Paul literally wrote the book on Yin Yoga. The 10th anniversary edition of Yin Yoga: Principles and Practice, available through Pranamaya, is an updated version of the original which introduced Yin Yoga as an integrated practice. As a colleague of Paul’s, Sarah continued the teachings of Yin Yoga as an important, supplemental style.
Yin Yoga DVD and Video
The best way to learn a new style of practice, or to deepen your understanding of it, is to perform it. Pranamaya has a variety of Yin Yoga DVDs, videos, and more to help you with this uniquely gentle form of yoga.
