YOGA STYLES

Nowadays there are many diffrent kind of yoga styles. This overview gives you a bit more knowlegde on what kind of styles there are and what you can expect from our Yin and Yang yoga.

Hatha Yoga

The Sanskrit term “hatha” is an umbrella term for all physical postures of yoga. In the West, hatha yoga simply refers to all the other styles of yoga (ashtanga, Iyengar, etc.) that are grounded in a physical practice. 

Hatha yoga classes are best for beginners since they are usually paced slower than other yoga styles. Hatha classes today are a classic approach to breathing and exercises. If you are brand-new to yoga, hatha yoga is a great entry point to the practice.

Vinyasa 

Vinyasa means “to place in a special way” and, in this case, yoga postures. Vinaysa yoga is the often considered the most athletic yoga style. Vinyasa was adapted from ashtanga yoga in the 1980s. Many types of yoga can also be considered vinyasa flows such as ashtanga, power yoga, and prana.

In vinyasa classes, the movement is coordinated with your breath and movement to flow from one pose to another. Vinyasa styles can vary depending on the teacher, and there can be many types of poses in different sequences.

Yin

Yin yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga with seated postures that are held for longer periods of time. Yin can also be a meditative yoga practice that helps you find inner peace.

Yin is a great class for beginners, as postures can be held for from 45 seconds to 2 minutes. The classes are relaxed, as you’re supposed to let gravity do most of the work.

Restorative yoga

 Restorative yoga focuses on winding down after a long day and relaxing your mind. At its core, this style focuses on body relaxation. Restorative yoga also helps to cleanse and free your mind.

You spend more time in fewer postures throughout the class. Many of the poses are modified to be easier and more relaxing. Like Iyengar, many props are used and are placed just right such as blankets, bolsters, and eye pillows. All of the props are there to help you sink deeper into relaxation.

Expect more yin in this practice.

 

Prenatal yoga

Prenatal yoga is carefully adapted for “moms to be” and is tailored to women in all trimesters. Many have said that prenatal is one of the best types of exercise for expectant moms because of the pelvic floor work, focus on breathing, and bonding with the growing baby; prenatal yoga also helps mothers prepare for labor and delivery.

During this practice, you’ll use props in order to modify your poses and ensure stability—in this class, it’s way more about stability than flexibility.

 

 

 

50+ yoga

Yoga — a union of mind, body and spirit.  If you’ve ever seen pictures of people doing yoga, you probably imagine that to do it you have to be 25 years old, have a perfect body and be able to wrap your knee around your head or balance your entire body on your elbows.

Despite the images you see in magazines, you don’t have to be young and fit to do yoga. In fact, if you’re over 50, yoga is one of the most beneficial types of exercise you can do.

Assuming you’re generally healthy (always check with your doctor when in doubt), yoga is the perfect activity to strengthen your muscles, gain more flexibility and deepen your spirituality.
