While Rinnku Suri agrees that all forms of yoga have huge health benefits, she believes that Vinyasa Yoga or flow yoga is especially suited for the times. It is the seamless movements from start to finish that makes this practice interesting and engaging. “Vinyasa yoga is surely gaining popularity as it’s refreshing from the other traditional forms of yoga. In this form of yoga practise, since movements and changes in motions are constant, it helps one connect with their breathing and overall cardiovascular health. In today’s work from home environment, it is good to mix things up and Vinyasa yoga will help to make your daily workouts interesting and effective,” offers Mumbai-based Suri who prefers calling herself Yoga Sadhak or student and has been fusing the yogic philosophy of East with the modern practices of the West.
