“A special feature of the asana system of Krishnamacharya was vinyasa. Many yoga students today are no doubt familiar with this word — it is increasingly used now, often to describe the “style” of a yoga class, as in “hatha vinyasa” or “vinyasa flow.” Vinyasa is essential, and probably unique, to Krishnamacharya’s teachings. As far as I know, he was the first yoga master in the last century to introduce this idea. A vinyasa, in essence, consists of moving from one asana, or body position, to another, combining breathing with the movement”. ~ A.G. Mohan
