Even though Yoga has Indian origins, it has been adapted in western countries as well, with new developments taking place every now and then. Various yoga studios now offer a variety of classes to suit your needs. Let us take you through some popular types.
For anyone looking for a spiritual and bodily experience, this is the right fit for you. Challenge your mind and body by singing, chanting and meditating. This typically involves breathing exercises, warming up, and gradually increasing the complexity of postures. End your session with a meditation to relax your mind.
Looking for more physical practice? Try Ashtanga yoga where you will follow a series of poses. Once you’ve mastered one pose, the instructor will assign the next to you. It is challenging as well as fulfilling and is ideal for anyone looking to settle into a strict routine.
This differs from the first two as it requires the room to be set at a certain high temperature. Bikram yoga constitutes 26 postures and is specifically designed to make you sweat and more flexible. The more you sweat, the better your blood circulation.
Sushmita Sen popularized this yoga in India and it is now catching on in other parts of the world as well. This form involves the same postures but with the addition of a harness attached to the ceiling. A non-traditional form of yoga, you can choose whether you’d like for the class to be physically challenging or relaxing.
There are several other options for you to choose from, so do your research and pick the right one today!
