Ashtanga vinyasa is a type of yoga that consists of a set series of poses synchronized with the breath, which are linked by flowing movements. It’s a vigorous, athletic form of yoga, and the heat and sweat produced detoxify the body, helping to increase circulation and calm the mind. Ashtanga yoga, “the eight limbs of yoga” in Sanskrit, refers to the teachings of Patanjali in the Yoga Sutras, a classical Indian text on yoga. The limb of asanas, or postures, is the basis for the modern practice of yoga as exercise.
