your yoga guide

Ok, so I've heard a few of the same main objections to yoga. Either it's too slow, too frustrating, or just weird. Chances are, if you didn't enjoy your yoga experience it wasn't the right instructor or style for you so try something new. 

a large majority of the yoga classes out there. This simply means they combine postures with breathing as you focus and clear the mind. It's a large, general umbrella group so one Hatha class may not be like another.

involves synchronizing the breath with a progressive series of postures. This process is meant to produce internal heat and a purifying sweat to detoxify muscles and organs. Ashtanga-Vinyasa is a looser, faster version and is my fav.

Bikram [hot yoga]
done in high temperatures and follows a twenty-six asana series. Moves slow but is still very intense and competitive, unlike other forms. I have friends & clients that swear by this. 

Iyengar yoga here. Power yoga here. Anusara yoga here. Kundalini yoga here


  1. This is a great post! Thanks for clearing those things up. I've been looking into yoga classes and now I know what kinds I'd be most interested in.

  2. I swear by Bikram. It's my religion. :)
