Pick Your Yoga Practice: Exploring and Understanding Different Styles of Yoga

by Meagan McCrary —

On the surface, it may appear that yoga is yoga, but take a closer look and you will discover myriad different yoga systems and lineages.

Dozens of yoga styles are available to choose from and, while yoga is for everyone, not every style is the perfect fit for every person. But, how do you choose between mysterious-sounding names such as Ashtanga, Kundalini, Bikram and Kripalu?

As McCrary discovered when she began exploring different classes, finding the right style is essential for establishing a steady yoga practice.

This book describes the most prominent yoga styles in depth, including teaching methodology, elements of practice, philosophical and spiritual underpinnings, class structure, physical exertion and personal attention.

Those new to yoga will discover they have many options and can confidently attend a class of their choosing.

Experienced practitioners will expand their understanding of the vast world of modern yoga, and perhaps they will find themselves venturing into new territory.

Styles included are: Ashtanga, Iyengar, Kundalini, Integral, Kripalu, Bikram, Jivamukti, Sivananda, Ananda, Viniyoga, Svaroopa, Power, Forrest, ISHTA, Anusara, Moksha and AcroYoga.
