5 Styles of Yoga You Need To Know

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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

A fighter. Just like my favourite top 3; Sakata Gintoki, Uzumaki Naruto, and Midoriya Izuku, I never give up. I learned from All Might that I must go beyond to become great. Midoriya taught me that I must work as twice as hard as everyone else to achieve what I always longed for. Gintoki showed me that even if I went through hard times that I'm still a strong fighter that turns into beast mode whenever needed. Naruto inspired me that even if everyone told me that I wasn't good enough for my dream then I should never give up and do better than my best to achieve it.. So I will. I will go beyond.
