Different Styles of Yoga
Although different styles have evolved over the years, the fundamental difference between the major styles rather is what you are doing and not how you do it. So the most important differences are how to fit your body, what it's like breathing, how to coordinate your movements, how to stay in posture and how to move from one position to another. In the next section of the article, we will try to discuss these styles in detail.
This special style is made based on the teachings of the famous yogi BKS Iyengar. The main emphasis on this style is physical fit. One of the most important aspects of yoga, the alignment of the body is essentially under the control of the asanas. This alignment determines how effective the asanas will be. What Iyengar suggested was that it was important to stay prolonged to maximize the effects of asana. He had no faith in the rapid changes from one to the other. In fact, he even suggested using props, such as yoga blankets, that it was possible to keep posture for a longer period of time.
This yoga style was developed by K. Pattabhi. The astanga is a Sanskrit word that means "eight extremities". This style is just the opposite of the Iyengar style, at least for the speed of the ax. The focus here is on speed. Routines tend to be rather intense and require many practitioners as they move from position to position. Astanga has developed uniquely in modern Power Yoga. This is the most recent Yoga Astanga that lends a great deal to routine and flow, though the Asans may deviate from what Astanga requires.
This yoga style was developed by TKV Desikachar who was renounced as a lawyer guru Krishnamacharya. Yoga in this form emphasizes the technique of breathing and how it coordinates breathing with physical movements. Yoga is a much gentler style compared to Astanga, but it has similarities with the Astanga when they move from one position to another. Viniyoga in a sense Astanga slow motion. The body has enough time to focus on each posture and regulate breathing. Stress is much smaller and the rate has decreased. Viniyoga teaches students how to use different yoga tools, such as pranayama, which shows how to regulate breathing, chanting, asanas, and meditation. So yoga has a very holistic approach, unlike the multitude of modern derivatives. Today, Viniyoga is becoming more and more popular, and it is believed that this style is most for beginners.
