There are many styles of yoga, and some of them are more focused on relaxation. Vinyasa yoga, on the other hand, focuses on finding relaxation and endurance within more rigorous movement sequences. The word “vinyasa” means “breath synchronized by movement,” and this type of yoga is sometimes called “vinyasa flow” because of the way all the poses flow together with the breath.

If you want to try this kind of yoga for yourself, here is a simple and quick video to get started.
