Some Of The Most Popular Types Of Yoga

When you try yoga for the first time, or for the second time, and you are still curious about which yoga is right for you, maybe this article can help you choose or maybe even try everything as part of your yoga journey. In this article, we will describe the types of popular yoga styles that you may often hear or meet in Yoga classes in Enfield.


– Hatha Yoga
Most types of yoga that exist today can be categorized as Hatha Yoga because they usually focus on aligning physical exercises with breathing. If you’ve heard of Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Iyengar, and Power Yoga, this type can also be categorized as Hatha Yoga, even though in practice, usually the tempo or pace of Hatha Yoga is calmer or slower.

Suitable for: Those of you who have just started trying yoga, because practicing Hatha will make you more able to recognize basic postures and recognize names from postures more easily. And because of the calm tempo, you can also explore each posture better.

– Vinyasa Yoga
This type of yoga usually flows dynamically and requires coordination between physical, posture, and breathing. Vinyasa Yoga is usually faster and freestyle, aka there is no standard set, but usually, the teacher or instructor always guides the class from the beginning to the end with a specific goal. For example, today’s session to strengthen arm muscles, the next class session, focus on backbend, or in one session you get a useful pose for all parts of your body.

Suitable for: You who like spontaneity, dynamic, and do not like routines. At each Yoga session, you will always feel surprised because of a different set of postures.

– Iyengar Yoga
This type of yoga focuses on precision posture and is very attentive to detailed body anatomy. Often you will be in one pose for a long time, and usually, there will also be posture modifications using a tool (block and strap/wall rope). This systematic yoga method usually aims to increase body strength, flexibility, and body stability. Iyengar Yoga can also be useful as a therapy for certain body conditions.

Suitable for: You who like to do something in detail, or you who want to do therapy for your health condition.
