What style of yoga is right for you?

If you are new to yoga, the first step is usually to find out which type of yoga is right for you. There are so many options! From Hatha Yoga to Vinyasa Yoga, there's something for everyone. The best way to find out what style suits you best is by trying a few different types of classes and seeing what feels most comfortable. Once you figure that out, it will be easy to stick with your favorite style!

What is yoga and how does it work?

Yoga is a practice that comes from ancient India. It has been passed down through the generations and practiced by millions of people around the world for centuries! Yoga uses breath, meditation, poses (asanas), and mindfulness to stretch muscles, strengthen bones, calm your mind, reduce stress levels and find peace within yourself.

It's believed yoga originated over 5000 years ago as part of Indian philosophy. The word 'yoga' means "union" or "to yoke together". When you do yoga exercises with good posture & technique there are many benefits such as improved flexibility, increased strength, endurance, reduced tension, improved relaxation & core stability.

Different styles of yoga.

There are many different styles of yoga you can try. Some popular types include hatha, ashtanga, power flow, bikram, yin and kundalini yoga.

Hatha Yoga is a slow-paced style that focuses on relaxation and the development of flexibility in muscles and joints. It's great for beginners who want to learn basic postures (asanas) while building strength gradually over time.

Ashtanga Yoga is a vigorous style characterized by rhythmic breathing patterns with synchronized movement between breath segments called kriyas . The Ashtanga sequence consists of six series or parts: primary , secondary , advanced A & B and advanced C & D which build from one another sequentially so each level prepares your body what comes next!

Power Flow Yoga is a dynamic form of yoga that focuses on improving strength and stamina. It also helps to develop flexibility & balance, while encouraging the body's natural detoxification process which helps you feel energised.

Bikram Yoga , known as "hot yoga", takes place in a room heated between 35 - 40 degrees celsius with a humidity range from 40%-60%. This style places an emphasis on controlled breathing during poses (asanas) for maximum benefit and improved blood circulation throughout your body. In comparison, other types of classes may have no heat or air conditioning so bikram studios tend to be hotter than conventional gyms!

Yin Yoga uses slow paced movements held for longer periods of time (usually around three minutes). This style is more meditative than other types of yoga and focuses on the deep connective tissues such as ligaments, tendons & fascia. It relies heavily on the use of props such as bolsters, stretch straps, blocks and blankets.

Kundalini Yoga is a form of yoga that can be difficult for beginners since it focuses on energy work, breathing & meditation techniques rather than physical postures (asanas). Many people experience deep mental and spiritual cleansing through this style which makes them feel refreshed & energised!

How to get started with a style of yoga

If you're new to yoga and want to try a few different styles, the best way is by going to your local studio or gym. Ask friends who practice if they can recommend any places – most likely they'll be able to suggest somewhere that's perfect for you! If you prefer practicing at home, there are many videos available online which provide excellent demonstrations of various postures (asana). You will need to set yourself up with some basic equipment such as our sustainable yoga mat, blocks and straps as well. A lot of yoga studios offer trials at low cost and joining a local studio is a wonderful way of becoming part of a community - an important aspect in cultivating wellbeing.

How does yoga make you feel?

One of the best things about doing your favorite style of yoga is what it can do to improve how you feel both physically and mentally. Yoga reduces stress levels by stimulating relaxation-inducing chemicals in your brain that help calm and focus you and help you enter your rest and digest phase. It also increases endorphins (feel good hormones) which boost happiness levels! Practicing yoga regularly has been shown to increase self esteem as well as improve sleep quality – making it easier for you to wake up feeling refreshed in the morning ready for whatever life throws at us next!

Common misconceptions about yoga

One of the most common misconceptions about yoga is that it's a practice for thin, young, flexible people. Quite simply this could not be further from the truth!.I can certainly attest to that! Most yoga practices don't require you to have a certain level flexibility or fitness levels so anyone can give it a go no matter what your age or body shape. The key is to make the practice work for you and your body.

Another misconception is that yoga isn’t physical enough because there aren’t any weights involved during postures (asana). However, don't let this fool you into thinking it's easy. It is true that certain practices may focus more on breathing.

Different types of yoga all have unique benefits depending on what it is you hope to achieve from your workout. Whether it's flexibility, strength building or deep meditation techniques - there is something out there for everyone so don't give up when trying find the right style just yet!
