What is Vinyasa Yoga? Intelligent Living Rhythm

Vinyasa is a topic near and dear to my heart and I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to learn from incredible teachers who have transmitted the art of vinyasa to their students. Below is an excerpt from my latest article on My Yoga on Gaia that dives deeply into the origins and practice of vinyasa. 

Empirical vinyasa is available to us at all times, from the mundane completion of household chores to the exquisite embrace of someone we love. Our lifetimes are a growing a collection of nows and the way we utilize each gifted moment inexorably shapes our reality. How we do anything is how we do everything, so why not do it in a special way? This is living vinyasa. A process of unifying the outer state with the inner state by completing any sequence of activities in such a way that we experience awareness and connection to source Self. The art of vinyasa is to unearth its potential in our everyday rhythm, be it breathing, speaking, working, eating or sleeping.
