Vinyasa’ means ‘breathing and movement system’. For example; inhale raise the arms over head, exhale fold to place the hands on the mat, inhale to look forward and open the front of the body, exhale jump back into plank position. The purpose of vinyasa is for internal purification. It internally heats the blood so that it can circulate freely around the joints to remove pain, and through organs to remove the impurities that cause disease. It is believed that impurities leave the body through sweat.
Tristhana is the three places of attention or action. Posture, breath, Drishti (gazing point). These three are very important for yoga practice, and cover three levels of purification; the body, the nervous system, and the mind. Tristhana is a useful tool in developing concentration, equanimity, perseverance and clarity.
