Today, yoga isn’t just about perfecting your Downward Dog. Now you have to decide if you want to do it upside down, in desert heat, or backwards on a paddle board. And attempting the wrong yoga type could mean the difference between finding your inner zen and wanting to punch your instructor. But don’t let the big decisions stop you from wanting to get your Om on. There’s a little something for everyone (from full-on noobs to total pros). “There’s a yoga style to suit every level, age and background,” explains yoga expert instructor Charlotte Dodson. “There are certain types to complement specific cycles in your life at the moment, and it’s important to remember that whichever style you decide to go for, yoga is a gateway to the same place: Stillness and peacefulness.”
Namaste to that! So, where does your gateway lie? The answer depends on many factors, like where you live, your budget, how much free time you have and what other exercise you do. If, for example, you love doing Pilates, you might prefer yoga that focuses more on soothing the mind rather than the body. If you’re into jogging, you may enjoy a variety that allows you to exercise fast movements. Whatever the situation, we’ve found the perfect yoga style for you.
If you think yoga is just sitting around and breathing in and out, think again.
