Yoga is calming, soothing and gentle, away of leaving the world behind and not just while you are in your yoga class, it becomes a way of life.

There are many styles and you may need to try a few different styles  to see which one suits you and your needs best.

Most styles are based on the same physical postures, known as poses with their own unique emphasis.

Yoga Styles

Hatha Yoga is a gentle form that includes many of the physical kinds. It is slow paced and a great introduction to basic yoga poses.

Vinyasa a more vigorous style based around poses called Sun Salutations. Your movement is matched to your breathing.

Iyengar Yoga works on bodily alignment and practice holding poses over long periods opposed to moving quickly form pose to pose. Iyengar yoga also uses props such as blocks and straps to assist with bringing the body into alignment.

Hot Yoga or Bikram Yoga very popular in the present day. Hot yoga is practiced in 100 degree temperature – this assists with the loosening of tight muscles and also lots of sweating happening which is thought to be cleansing. Bikram Yoga has 26 poses but not all are used in each class.

There are still more and more types, the thing to remember is that all yoga is based around similar poses and breathing. It is recommended to try a few different styles of yoga classes and teachers to find the one that suits you.

To really get the most out of your yoga stretches try combining yoga with regular massages. This will help further reduce stress, increase flexibility in your body, increase circulation and removal of toxins and generally increase your well being.

What Are The Benefits Of Yoga?

1. Flexibility Is Improved

The moving and stretching poses increases flexibility throughout your body. With this, comes a greater range of movement to tight areas. With regular classes you can gain more flexibility through your hips, back and shoulders. Your hamstrings will improve over time as well.

2. Strength Is Increased

Again over time with regular classes, your physical strength goes up with poses requiring you to balance of one leg or holding your body up with your arms.

3. Muscle Tone Also Increases

As you body becomes stronger you can expect increased muscle tone. Yoga shapes your muscles into being longer and leaner.

4. Balance

Yoga really tests your balance, and this can be helpful as we age. 

As you become more advanced your balance will lead to inversion balancing and this helps to strengthen your core strength.
