Vinyasa yoga is a term that covers a wide range of yoga styles. The term vinyasa refers to the coordination of breath and movement. This method turns a static asana, such as poses done in Iyengar yoga, into a dynamic flow (in fact, Vinyasa is often called "flow yoga" or "Vinyasa flow").

The breath is one of the most important concepts in Vinyasa yoga, as teachers should be instructing their students to move from one pose to another on an inhale or an exhale. In Sanskrit, the word Vinyasa means "connection," and most interpret this as the connection between movement and breath.
