YOGA TERMS:

VINYASA: Vinyasa means "synchronized breath/ movement exercising system." The breath is the key to this system of yoga. It links asana (posture) to asana in a precise manner. Vinyasa, or "flow yoga" is a popular evolving tradition of yoga emerging in the Western world. Its roots come from the tree of Sri T. Krishnamacharya whose lineage gave way to three other classical forms of yoga: Ashtanga, Iyengar, and Viniyoga.

ASHTANGA: A traditional flowing style of yoga, developed by Sri K. Pattahbi Jois of Mysore, India, that coordinates deep breathing with a set sequence of moves. Ashtanga offers a complete workout which can increase strength, flexibility, and stamina as well as improving one's breath and body awareness.

AYURVEDA: An over 5000 year old program of holistic alternative medicine that is the traditional system of medicine of India. From Deepak Chopra's site: "Early Greek medicine also embraced many concepts originally described in the classical ayurvedic medical texts dating back thousands of years."
