♻️YOGA FOR STRENGTH & HEXIBILITY
💥Different YOGA Styles Explained
You can try to identify your yoga type or figure out what your yoga personality is to see which of the following styles is best for you. There are many to choose from, but don’t let that intimidate you. Try a beginner-friendly class before branching out (if you want to).
1) 🔥 HATHA YOGA
Hatha is a very general term that encompasses any of the physical styles of yoga. In contemporary yoga lingo, hatha has come to mean a slow-paced and gentle way of practicing. Hatha classes are often a good place to begin a yoga practice because they provides an introduction to the basic yoga poses in a low-key setting.
2) 🔥 VINYASA FLOW YOGA
Like hatha, vinyasa is a general term used to describe many different types of classes. Vinyasa tends to be a more vigorous style of yoga incorporating series of poses called sun salutations, in which each movement is matched to the breath.
3) 🔥 Hatha Flow Classes
Just to confuse things, some studios throw something called Hatha flow into the mix. Wait, didn’t we just say that Hatha wasn’t flow? Classes in which you move from pose to pose in a sequence without resting can also correctly be described as Vinyasa. To further add to the muddle, you might see both Hatha flow and Vinyasa on the schedule at your local studio. In this case, expect the Vinyasa to be a little more vigorous, but so much depends on the style of each individual teacher that it’s impossible to be definitive on this point without taking specific classes. If you need more clarification, ask the studio how the classes differ or try them yourself to find out.
