The base is the movements, whose repetition helps to connect the asanas, vinyasas to each other. When performing asanas, proper breathing is important, as are the breathing exercises that accompany vinyasa yoga. To achieve excellence in this style, you must devote a lot of time to classes every day. Vinyasa yoga is primarily a transformation of the body and consciousness.
Vinyasa yoga consists of 6 main series. The series are sets of exercises aimed at certain objectives. What characterizes Vinyasa yoga is a combination of movement with breathing: inhaling is one movement, exhaling is another. Due to this synchronization, the set of asanas becomes a single stream, and the practice becomes meditation in motion. The key rule of vinyasa is that the movement follows the breath. The movement begins with the beginning of breathing and lasts as long as inhalation (or exhalation) lasts.
“Breathing tells me how fast I have to move,” explains David Robson, director of the Ashtanga Yoga Center in Toronto
When performing asanas of the Vinyasa technique, a special concentration of attention is necessary. This technique is called drishti. When we direct the focus, first from the eyes and then from the attention, we are using the yogic technique called drishti.
When we keep a drishti, we keep the direction of the gaze still. That look should be soft, allowing the muscles involved in it to be relaxed, while those involved in the asana hold the posture without stressing those that are not necessary.

You can also say that yoga destroys the existential suffering of the mind, which is born from addiction to identify as an individual, isolated from the rest of the world.
