Ashtanga Yoga: Feeling the Burn

Ashtanga Yoga is different from other styles of yoga, in that it incorporates something called the Vinyasa, which means breathing and movement. It is employed for internal cleansing. Each movement receives one breath. Also, sweating is very important in the Vinyasa. While executing the asanas, heat is created. This helps the blood carry toxins, which are removed through sweat.
