What are the differences among the types of yoga?

Different Types of Yoga

The variety of yoga classes offered at your local gym can be very confusing. Ashtanga yoga, sometimes called power yoga, is a very active form of yoga. Power yoga will build strength, flexibility and endurance. Another popular form of yoga is hatha yoga. Hatha yoga focuses less on activity and more on stretching and strengthening the body. Hatha yoga is great for stress-relief and flexibility. Bikram, which is a series of 26 poses performed in a heated room and iyengar, which focuses on a series of poses or asanas, are also common. The best way to figure out which type is best for you is to go to each class and try it out.
