Which style of yoga is right for me?

Choosing a Style of Yoga

One of the best ways to decide which style of yoga is right for you is to take a look at the kind of person you are. How physically active are you? Are you more meditative than active? There are many yoga styles that appeal to a wide range of personalities. Ashtanga Viniyasa Yoga is good for medidating and breathing exercises. It can be very difficult physically, but the basis of Ashtanga Viniyasa yoga is the method and flow of breathing with the various yoga postures. Iyengar Yoga is a more passive and peaceful yoga exercise that focuses on posture and body alignment. Iyengar yoga uses blocks, ropes and other props to help in the various positions. This type of yoga is especially good for people with disabilities or injuries. Hatha Yoga is often referred to as "beginner yoga". The practice of Hatha Yoga combines physical and breathing exercises to calm the mind. Reviewing each style's yoga technique with an honest eye will help you find a style that works best with your personality.
