Finding the style of yoga that best suits your needs could be overwhelming if you are new to the practice, have existing conditions, previous injuries, current ailments, or are simply looking to slow down.
There are 8 limbs of yoga. The fourth limb, the physical practice of yoga as we know it in the west, is called Asana. Below are a few examples of asanas that are beneficial to all levels from beginners to advanced practitioners. These are the asanas I teach online.
Gentle & Mindful
Traditional Hatha connects breath to body. You might be familiar with these poses but you stay in them longer than Vinyasa. This will help with deep muscle stretching to calm both the mind and body. Most postures are seated and supine.
Movement, Flow and Breath
Vinyasa might be considered the most popular or common. This style includes Sun Salutations. It can be gentle or rigorous. Vinyasa is about movement, transition, using your breath to link poses while connecting the mind, body and spirit.
Passive, feminine and meditative. This practice is a great compliment to a more active style of movement. The aim is to calm the mind and stretch the body. Its roots start in traditional Chinese Medicine.
