There Is a Style of Yoga for Everyone

Yoga has been a massive part of my spiritual growth. I love being on the mat, in the community with other fellow practitioners and “yogis”.

With that being said, it’s been a while since I’ve practised. I feel like I’m more drawn to yoga in the Spring and Summertime, like the moon we go through cycles, and for me, Autumn and Winter is a time where I like to go inwards, and self reflect.

When I first started my yoga journey, I went to every yoga class, not knowing what each style was. I just wanted to learn which one resonated most with me. I love the slower, more “spiritual” style classes – Sivananda was my go-to class.

I thought it would be good to write some of the most popular yoga styles and how you could be best suited to the style.

Ashtanga: This is definitely a more challenging approach to yoga. You’ll love it if you’re a perfectionist, as there are strict routines and guidelines associated with this style of yoga.

Hatha: This is a slower form of practise as you’re required to hold the pose for a few breaths. This is good if you’re new to yoga and want to start with a more gentle approach.

Vinyasa: This is more of a dynamic flow practice that links movement and breath. This is fast-flowing; you won’t be holding a pose for too long. This is great if you love HIIT classes or if you like more intense forms of exercise.

Sivananda: This is a deep-rooted practice that includes pranayama exercises and meditation. This style of practice is perfect if you want to grow your awareness of your own self and your connection to the divine.

There are SO many more styles of yoga. However, I’ve listed the ones that I’ve tried and that seems to be the most “popular”.

I’m so excited for the lighter mornings and longer evenings, this always inspires me to get back to my practice! ACTUALLY, this post has inspired me!
