The Different  Types Of Yoga  And The Effects It  Has On Your Body 

Yoga is an awesome way to have an exercise program that gives you all you need in a simple, inexpensive form that you can even do in your own home.  It is an exercise discipline that will connect your mind and body and nurture your soul, and it can really help bring about positive life change.

Here are some of the types of yoga you might consider.

Hatha is a slower-moving yoga that requires you to hold each pose for  a few breaths. Very gentle in nature,  so it is best for beginners due to its slower pace. This is a great way to  get started!

#1 Hatha

Vinyasa is a very dynamic practice that links movement and breath together in a dance-like way.  The pace can be quick, so your heart rate will rise. This is best for those who will miss their normal intense exercise if they try to substitute yoga.

#2 Vinyasa

Ashtanga is a more challenging, yet orderly, yoga consisting of six series of specifically sequenced yoga poses that flow. You breathe through each pose to build heat in the body.  This is best done in a class until  poses are learned and perfected.

#3 Ashtanga

Be ready to sweat because this type of yoga consists of a specific series of poses and two breathing exercises practiced at 110 degrees. For hot yoga, you must stay hydrated and it is an easy style for beginners. Hot yoga is usually done in a class setting.

#4 Hot Yoga

This type of yoga will seem very different from your typical yoga class. Kundalini is a mixture of repetitive physical exercises, intense breath work, and chanting, singing,  or meditating. This type of yoga  will most likely break through your internal barriers, and bring you to a higher level of self-awareness.

#5 Kundalini

This type of yoga will calm your mind and balance your body. Yin yoga is a meditative yoga that is designed to target your deeper connective  tissues and fascia, restoring length and elasticity. This is great for those  who need to stretch and unwind.

#6 Yin Yoga

Restorative is a mellow,  slow-moving practice. It gives  your body a chance to tap into a “relaxation response”, allowing you to experience deep relaxation. This is great for those who deal with insomnia and anxiety.
