What styles of Yoga are there? – Georgina Kay

What styles of Yoga are there?

There are many styles of yoga out there but which one should I practice? Well who’s to say you can’t practice them all? After all yoga is yoga no matter what style of practice. I myself practice Ashtanga and Vinyasa flow because I like the set sequence in Ashtanga, but I also love the rawness of being able to move freely within the body in any pose I feel like in Vinyasa. If you’ve never started yoga before, I would suggest to go to a few different style of classes and see which one you might connect with more.

I’ve written the types and styles of yoga for you to have a look at below.

Types of yoga (The four main paths we take as a yogi:

Karma Yoga (Yoga of action) Bhakti Yoga (Devotion towards something/someone) Jnana Yoga (Path of knowledge) Raja Yoga (The method/practice of yoga)

Styles of yoga (there might even be more than this because some more recent yoga teachers have created their own styles such as Tara Styles – Strala Yoga and Michelle Muench) Some of these styles of yoga are very similar as well: – Iyengar yoga. Iyengar and ashtanga yoga come from the same lineage – the teachers who developed these styles (BKS Iyengar and Pattabhi Jois) were both taught by Tirumalai Krishnamacharya).

  • Ashtanga yoga Mysore style (Ashtanga yoga series)
  • Vinyasa flow
  • Bikram yoga
  • Kundalini yoga
  • Hatha yoga
  • Yin yoga
  • Power Yoga
  • Jivamukti Yoga
  • Anusara Yoga
  • Sivananda Yoga
  • Viniyoga
  • Integrative Yoga therapy
  • Restorative Yoga

I’m not going to go through exactly what each one consists of because I think you should see it through a video version, so I challenge you to go do a bit of research into some of the styles and maybe watch a few YouTube videos and see which one is more for you.

Thank you for reading and have a blessed day🙏🏼
