You probably didn’t know that yoga has different styles. Well, we brought you some of them!
1. Hatha Yoga
It is an introductory style for all the basics with a classical approach to both the poses and breathing techniques. It is perfect for beginners who just started doing yoga but at the same time for those who like variety in movements with moderate difficulty.
- Vinyasa Yoga
This style of yoga focuses more on the dynamic practice while linking breath to movement. It’s more fast paced than Hatha style and is often preferable for athletes since it is intense. It raises your heart beat rate accordingly with the sequences of the poses.
- Iyengar Yoga
If you’re into detail and precision, this style is for you. Unlike the last style, this one mainly focuses on holding static poses for a really long period of time. It also attracts those who are into details as you will know more about your body and how those poses affect them.
- Ashtanga Yoga
This one is best for perfectionists who love a bit of a challenge, as you will work through a specifically sequenced six series poses to build an internal heat. It’s more of a strict routine yoga due to the repetitiveness of its poses over classes.
- Bikram Yoga
For people who do not like to sweat, stay away from this one. As for those who do not feel like they’re making an effort unless sweat shows, then keep on reading. Bikram is known as a hot yoga. It is performed in a room heated to 40 degrees and in addition to a rise of humidity to 40%. And that’s not all, the session consists of 26 postures with two breathing practice and is completed in a duration of 90-minutes. Think you can hold on?
No matter which style you prefer, make sure that you always enjoy it.
