Dynamic Yoga is a learning method rather than another style of Yoga practice.
It is a pathway to classical yoga creating a clear continuum between the Dynamic Yoga learning formats and the traditional practice formats of classical yoga. At the heart of Dynamic Yoga and Classical Yoga is the principle and practice of Vinyasa Krama (step by step)
This is applied in four ways
- The postures are learned in stages. This allows for gradual assimilation of the underlying techniques, which are gradually built up from the foundation to constitute the whole.
- The postures are entered in specific steps. Each step is synchronized with and inhalation or exhalation. The number of steps taken depends on the proficiency of the student. The more capable the less steps.
- The postures are introduced gradually, either linked in groups or individuality. This is done according to their accessibility and effect, so that they prepare the ground for each other in accessible sequences. This allows the body to open without strain or exhaustion and the mind to open without resistance.
- The posture sequences are also introduced sequentially according to their accessibility and effect. Again each one prepares for the one that follows, so that the student is empowered gradually, safetly and effectively.
