Ashtanga yoga is a system of yoga transmitted to the modern world by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois (1915-2009). This method of yoga is a dynamic, flowing style that synchronises the movement of the body with the breath. —a process producing intense internal heat and a profuse, purifying sweat that detoxifies muscles and organs. Ashtanga Yoga involves the practice of physical postures in-conjunction with awareness of the breath to help develop mental focus and to connect the mind, body, and spirit. The result is improved circulation, a light and strong body, and a calm mind.
Yin Yoga is a complementary yoga practice to the more dynamic and invigorating yoga styles that are predominant today. As opposed to a more active flow class, yin yoga involves passive stretching. Some call it the “other half of yoga.” In Yin Yoga, floor postures are held passively for several minutes in order to access a safe and positive ‘stress’ on the deep layers of connective tissue in the body. Physically, Yin Yoga restores and maintains the natural mobility of the joints, primarily between the navel and the knees. Energetically, Yin Yoga opens the body’s meridian system, which enhances the body’s energetic flow and supports emotional equilibrium. As this practice emphasizes
stillness and silence, Yin Yoga prepares both the body and the mind for deeper experiences in meditation.
Hatha Yoga is classified in the Western world as one type of mind-body exercise (along with Tai Chi, Qi Gong, Pilates, and others) and a type of complementary and alternative medicine that has become a popular and effective form of exercise in healthy, clinical, and athletic populations because of the numerous health and fitness benefits associated with a regular practice. Beyond the physical practice, there are some principles of Yoga that may not be very well known by contemporary fitness enthusiasts that can enhance an existing Yoga practice and offer additional lifestyle benefits.
Vinyasa, also called flow because of the smooth way that the poses run together, is one of the most popular contemporary styles of yoga. In contemporary yoga parlance, Vinyasa stands in opposition to Hatha. Hatha classes tend to focus on one pose at a time with rest in between. In contrast, Vinyasa flow classes string poses together to make a sequence. Vinyasa’s strength is in its diversity. If you appreciate having things a little loose and unpredictable and like to keep moving, this style is definitely worth a try!
