Ashtanga, Dynamic Yoga, from traditional Korunta yoga updated in the 19th century by Sri  Krishnamacharya, was created by his disciple Sri K. Pattabhi Jois in Mysore, India. This yoga is based on the  principle of ashtānga-yoga expounded by Patanjali in the Yoga-Sûtra and series of postures are  performed in a specific order.  

Vinyasa yoga derives from Ashtanga yoga and consists of the same asanas (postures), their sequence is simply more free and creative.The sequences can know a multitude of variations and adapt to the needs and capacities of each one.Vinyasa yoga can be defined as a series of complementary postures related les  one or other during which movement and breathing are intimately linked leading to a "consciousness in motion".

Vinyasa yoga is based on important philosophical foundations whose8 yoga limbs  written by Patanjali (in-depth concepts in the articleAshtanga yoga, the 8 limbs of yoga). 

Vinyasa means “synchronizing movement with breathing”. Certain asanas are held  for several breaths. 

Mastery of breathing (Prânâyâma) is the key to yoga and one of the first pillars of the practice.  

Prana: vital force, breathing. Ayama: to stretch, to extend. Yama: to restrict, to control.

Pranayama could be translated as: “Extension of the vital force” or control of the breath.  

The practice is anchored on 3 key principles: âsana, prânâyâma, drishti which form the Tristana (unity of the 3 components).

Tristana-"Ashtanga-Yoga lotus bud": When the movement merges with the breath, the energy carries the body effortlessly and the concentration is carried from the outside to the inside, we reach Tristana. 

Vinyasa yoga, based on the synchronization between breathing and movement, gives rise to a fluid and meditative dance activating the vital energy "prana".

Breathing is essential. Each movement corresponds to a breath. Breath and movement are intimately linked. As you practice, you realize that the breath guides the movement, that it becomes the motor and this more and more naturally. When breath and movement act in harmony, the body flourishes in freedom.

From the toes to the top of the skull, the whole body is strengthened and toned in depth.

Particular attention is paid to breath, bodily sensations and interiority.

Integrating various complementary elements is at the heart of the practice: strength/flexibility, will/letting go.


The ASANAS (postures), the BANDHAS (energy locks, located at the level of certain chakras, places of control and transformation of the vital energy prana) and the UJJAYÎ breathing ("victorious breath") are explored to develop a conscious and balanced.


Great precision is sought in accordance with the capacities of each yogi.

Rehabilitation of muscle chains, revitalization, rebalancing and adjustments develop bodily, psychic and spiritual harmony.


The rhythm and the sequence of asanas, the concentration on the body movement promotes a real letting go (Ishvanapranidhana). Emotions, stress, mental agitation are soothed.

Muscles, balance and endurance are strengthened by the different families of postures performed:

flexions, extensions, twists, standing, sitting or lying down.

The intensity of the practice allows you to sweat and eliminate toxins present in the body.

Finally, the centering at the beginning of the session and the relaxation at the end of it allow you to be in the present moment.

Yoga is what we do not see. inner spiritual journey. “Behind the power of the body hides a spiritual energy, and it is this that keeps us alive. To access spirituality, one must first  understand the physical. This body is our temple and in this temple is Atman – God.” Sri K. Patthabi Jois, Master Yogi Ashtanga Yoga, disciple of Krishnamacharya.



Practiced regularly, the sun salutation helps to quickly develop strength and flexibility.

When you are comfortable with the A version of the Sun Salutation, we include the even more physical sequence of the B Salutation. In Vinyasa yoga, these salutations include several jumps and postures in support on the hands which strengthen the back, arms and shoulders.

Depending on your level, variations will be made, such as walking instead of jumping.

At the end of a Vinyasa yoga session, about ten minutes are devoted to relaxation in savasana (elongated posture), offering complete relaxation of the muscles, skin, organs and nervous system.

Regular practice or sadhana (literally translated as "the means of accomplishing something") helps it to strengthen, to become more flexible so that gradually the student manages to master the asanas (the postures). It is at this moment that the practitioner will recognize his body, realize his full capacity for flexibility and discern his infinite potential.


The benefits on the mind are quickly felt. Regular practice helps to develop Dharana (Power of concentration)  and to achieve deep serenity. Thus, clarity and confidence naturally increases, in order to dare to spread its wings with strength and discernment. To embody his Being, source of infinite potential.

One of the first keys to getting there is to become aware of your breath of life...

In connection with his Being.

"Being clear in your thoughts and actions, being at peace with what you are experiencing, without wanting more or anything else  thing, practicing regularly, getting to know yourself and acting in the movement of life, such  are the rules of life offered by Yoga. » Patanjali's Yoga Sutra.
