There are many different types of yoga to practice, so its important to find out which type of yoga is right for you. Heres a quick introduction to some of the most common types of yoga:
Bikram Yoga- Get ready to sweat. You will be practicing in 105 degree heat and in 40% humidity. Though Bikram only has 26 poses and theres a lot of alignment work so it is a good fit for beginners.
Hatha Yoga- This class is also likeley to be focused on slow and gentle movements so its a great type of yoga to wind down at night.
Vinyasa Yoga- You’ll definitly be moving, flowing from one pose to the next. It is the most popular style of yoga in America
Kundalini Yoga- Refers to the energy of the Root Chakra, which surronds the area around you lower spine. Expect lots of work in your core area, these classes are known to be intense
Ashtanga Yoga- Commonly called Power Yoga. Asgtanga is definitley physically demanding. It is probably best suited for an ex-athlete or someone who is looking to push their body
Iyengar Yoga- Expect lots of props with this style of yoga such as blocks, harnesses, straps and even cushions. Theres also a lot of focus on alignment so Iyengar can be great for physical therapy.
Anusara Yoga- Expect many heart opening poses like backbends and more talking by the instructor. It is epitomized by the Celebration of the Heart.
Restorative Yoga- If your looking to wind down after a long day of work, quiet your mind- Restorative yoga might be the answer for the relaxation
Juvamukti Yoga- Is a mix of vinyasa flow sequencing infused with chanting and a vegetarian twist
These are only some of the different types of yoga. There are many others- check out your yoga studio for different classes. At the studio I go to there are foundation flow, Wellness vinyasa, mixed yoga styles, detox and refresh, Yin restorative, Yoga for runners and athletes, Yoga for back care and power flow (:follow: www.health-freeak.tumblr.com
