Have you ever thought about starting practicing yoga? Not sure where to start. How do I know which style is right for me?
I’ve rounded up the most popular styles and put together all the information you need on the style:

Ashtanga Yoga

Fast-paced and challenging, Ashtanga consists of six unvarying asana (pose) sequences that are to be practised in gradual progression. Traditionally, Ashtanga yoga is taught in a Mysore setting, where students practise in silence at their own pace while receiving individual guidance from the teacher.

Is it for me?
If you’re looking for an athletic and structured practice that will give you that strong, lean body you’ve always wanted, you can confidently walk into a Mysore class.

Vinyasa Flow
Derived from Ashtanga, this style of yoga mixes up asanas to create new and creative sequences. The sequences are usually dynamic and physically challenging, and will surely incorporate “Sun Salutations”, “Warriors”, hip openers, back bends, and inversions, so be prepared to move loads, progress quickly, and sweat buckets in the process.

Is it for me?
If you’re looking to tone up and build flexibility, but don’t like the idea of doing the same asana sequence every time, then Vinyasa Flow is your yoga fix.

Bikram Yoga
Bikram yoga is a set sequence of 26 asanas (each done twice) performed in a hot and humid room. Extensive sweating allows tense muscles to soften so students can go deeper into each asana. It is also believed to promote detoxification and the flushing out of toxins.

Is it for me?
If you like to sweat and prefer discipline and structure in your practice, then Bikram yoga is perfect for you. Make sure to come to class well-hydrated

Yin Yoga
It was designed to help practitioners go deeper than superficial muscular tissues and target the joints, ligaments, and bones through passive stretches and long posture holds. Yin classes are slow in pace, will not make you sweat, it’s not an easy practice – due to long posture holds, some poses can get quite uncomfortable. This style of yoga is perfect for active people looking to build flexibility, improve joint stability, and heal muscular tissues.

Is it for me?
If you’re looking for a slow, meditative type of yoga that helps to unwind and de-stress, then sign up for a Yin class. This style is perfect for people who stay active by running, cycling, or weight-lifting.
