Praise for
"Srivatsa Ramaswami's book is nothing less than a treasure for yoga students at
every level of ability. Its informative introduction to practice, combined with
clear descriptions of literally hundreds of yoga postures, have brought
Krishnamacharya's vision of asana teaching to life. Each pose is skillfully embed􀅒
ded within a classical family of movements-a vinyasa sequence-and these are
illustrated by well􀅓chosen photographs. Equally valuable, the text grounds each
reader in the fundamental idea of vinyasa-the integration of movement,
breath, and mindfulness that is so vital to a rewarding yoga practice. Aided by
its simple and agreeable style of writing, this book will undoubtedly become a
standard reference for those seeking to understand the spirit of yoga. "
-ROLF SoviK, PsvD., Spiritual Director, Himalayan International Institute,
coauthor of Yoga: Mastering the Basics

"This book is a precious contribution to yoga; ancient knowledge brought forth
by Professor T. Krishnamacharya and faithfully presented to us by his dear stu􀅔
dent Ramaswami. You can place these vital principles into the yoga that you
already know and love to make your practice powerful, safe, and efficient. This
is the full spectrum of yoga from the "teacher of our teachers. " With no agenda
except to accurately represent yoga, Ramaswami duplicates his teacher's
knowledge gathered over thirty·three years of private lessons with him. Study
this book. It is straight from the source. "
-MARK WHITWELL, author of Yoga of the Heart

"The Complete Book of Vinyasa Yoga is truly comprehensive as it incorporates
proper breathing guidance coordinated with an incredible variety of yoga
vinyasas. Techniques for stretching and strengthening the thoracic muscles
associated with breathing and increasing the length of inhale and exhale makes
this book useful even in therapeutic settings. In teaching yoga to cancer
patients at the USC (University of Southern California) cancer hospital, breath
awareness and control (pranayama) is the most important ingredient for
decreasing pain. Additionally, bandhas are essential for restoring strength to
the inner core of pelvic muscles in prostate cancer patients. Ramaswami has
included all. This book supplies me with a complete array of tools to help my students. "
-VIVIAN RICHMAN, yoga therapist, USC/ Norris Cancer Center

"Beautiful. Masterful. Complete. The full spectrum of Krishnamacharya's asana
teaching methods. Instructions are clear, concise, accurate, fully illustrated,
and given in exquisite detail. Here for the first time are all eleven sequences
including the Visesha (special) sequences and a chapter on the proper way to
end a practice. Ardent students and serious teachers of the yoga of
Krishnamacharya will rejoice. "
-DAVID H URWITZ, yoga instructor

Introduction
WHAT IS VINYASA KRAMA YOGA?
VINYASA KRAMA YOGA is an ancient practice of physical and spiritual
development. It is a systematic method to study, practice, teach, and
adapt yoga. This vinyasa krama (movement and sequence methodology)
approach to yogasana (yoga posture) practice is unique in all of yoga. By integrating
the functions of mind, body, and breath in the same time fra me, a practitioner
will experience the real joy of yoga practice. Each of the important postures
(asanas) is practiced with many elaborate vinyasas (variations and movements).
Each variation is linked to the next one by a succession of specific transitional
movements, synchronized with the breath. The mind closely follows
the slow, smooth, deliberate ttjjayi yogic breathing; and the yoking of mind and
body takes place with the breath acting as the harness.
