  • There's so many styles of yoga. What's best for me?

    I'm starting to learn that there's so many different types of yoga and sometimes I don't even know what I'm expecting from each class. Is there a particular type of yoga that I should focus on or should I be able to do all of them? I know there vinyasa, ashtanga, hatha? Thank you for the help!

    It's best to try out the different classes so you can determine which style you enjoy the most.

    Hatha: More gentle class
    Vinyasa: More flowy (moving from one pose to the next without stopping)
    Yin: Poses done lying down and often holding for long duration (3-5 min). This helps stretch your muscles and release your connective tissues.
    Bikram: A series of 26 postures done in a heated room
    Ashtanga: A more vigorous style of yoga. Same set of sequence.
    Iyengar: Static style. Uses props and straps to help.

      I'm starting to do more vinyasa because I like that the pace is faster and I can also work out a sweat.
