You say ashtanga, I say vinyasa

Let’s call the whole thing…  hatha.

All the physical aspects of yoga can be called hatha, no matter what “style” you choose to practice.

I thought I’d compile a little list (it’s by no means exhaustive) to give you an idea of what style to focus on if you want a particular result.

Want a “yoga body”?

Try:
Power yoga
Ashtanga
Jivamukti
Bikram (if you must)
Anything that says it’s “vinyasa”

Want more calm?

Try:
Satyananda
Sivananda
Restorative classes (in most styles)

Need a personalised practice to recover from injury or illness?

Try:
Viniyoga

Kinda details-focused?

Try:
Iyengar

What’s the deal with hatha?

It’s pretty much all hatha.
