Viniyoga is one of several sister-lineages along with Astanga and Iyengar yoga. Being related in origin, these yoga teachings share many aspects, including postural universe, breath coordination in movement in and out of postures, and the Yoga Sutra of Patanjali as the central text, to name a few examples. Viniyoga is taught by Gary Kraftsow (US), the word "viniyoga" being a Sanskrit term and translates as "differentiation, adaptation, and appropriate application". The viniyoga of yoga, or simply "Viniyoga", hence articulates that the tools of yoga must be applied in an individualized and customized fashion. Gary Kraftsow is also well known for his pioneering contribution to yoga therapy in the US.
A few characteristics are often mentioned as typical for Viniyoga asana (postural) practice:
You can expect this from a Viniyoga drop-in class: A basic principle in Viniyoga is that each movement is carefully coordinated with the breath. It is acknowledged that the breath is intimately related to both the mind and our physiology and the aim of the classes is to balance mind, body and physiology for each of the practitioners. With time, you should expect improvements within all three areas. We first start with centring and an introduction to how breath and movement is coordinated around the spine as a central axis. Next follow the sequence of the day, which often ends with a short meditation and time for reflection and reintegration. Notes from the class are provided afterwards for personal use to encourage your own home practice.
