Vinyasa yoga

Vinyasa yoga, usually referred to simply as Ashtanga yoga, is a style of yoga codified and popularized by K. Pattabhi Jois during the 20th Century and which is often promoted as a modern-day form of classical Indian yoga. Jois began his yoga studies in 1927 at the age of 12 and by 1948, he had established the Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute for teaching the specific yoga practice known as Ashtanga (Sanskrit for “eight-limbed”) yoga. Ashtanga yoga is named after the eight limbs of yoga mentioned in the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali.

In the words of Pattabhi Jois, "'Vinyasa' means ‘breathing system.’ Without Vinyasa, don’t do asana. When Vinyasa is perfect, the mind is under control." Vinyasa means breathing with movement. For each movement, there is one breath. All asanas are assigned a certain number of Vinyasas.

According to Sharath, “The purpose of vinyasa is for internal cleansing. Breathing and moving together while performing asanas makes the blood hot, or as Pattabhi Jois says, boils the blood. Thick blood is dirty and causes disease in the body. The heat created from yoga cleans the blood and makes it thin, so that it may circulate freely.

Sharath also claims that the heated blood removing toxins, impurities, and disease from the organs through sweat produced during the practice. He claims that “it is only through sweat that disease leaves the body and purification occurs.”

Ashtanga yoga

Ashtanga yoga literally means “eight-limbed yoga” as outlined by the sage Patanjali in the yoga sutras. According to Patanjali, the path of internal purification for revealing the Universal Self consists of the following eight spiritual practices which are yama (moral codes), niyama (self-purification and study), asana (posture), pranayama (breath control), pratyahara (sense control), dharana (concentration), dhyana (meditation), and samadhi (absorption into the Universal) (Scott 14-17).

The first four limbs - yama, niyama, asana, pranayama - are considered external cleansing practices. According to Pattabhi Jois, defects in the external practices are correctable. However, defects in the internal cleansing practices - pratyahara, dharana, dhyana - are not correctable and can be dangerous to the mind unless the correct Ashtanga yoga method is followed (Stern and Summerbell: 35). For this reason, Pattabhi Jois emphasizes that the “Ashtanga yoga method is Patanjali yoga” (Flynn).
