What Kind of Yoga Is Right for You

5) Iyengar

Iyengar yoga, established in the 1970s by B.K.S. Iyengar, emphasizes perfect alignment, using props, such as blocks, belts and blankets.

Anyone with an injury or chronic condition will benefit from this yoga, which is often recommended as healing therapy.

6) Bikram

Bikram yoga is a form of hot yoga, created by Bikram Chowdhury, which consists of a never-changing, 26-pose sequence in saunalike rooms with temperatures that can reach 105 degrees and up to 40 percent humidity.

Beneficial for beginners and for those who wish to detoxify and lose weight. As with all forms of hot yoga, Bikram should be practiced carefully to prevent dehydration.

  1. Great outline but you missed my favorite- Kundalini Yoga. It's meditative and thoughtful, levels up based on how hard you push yourself so classes aren't by level, and has proven to be good strength and balance training for me. The classes are different every time.
