You may be wondering what style of yoga best fits your needs, and depending on the day, the type of yoga you choose may vary significantly. Luckily there are a wide variety of styles that are designed to meet you where you are. We find it helpful to break them up into the categories: move, heal, and connect. Below, you will see the different styles that fall into each of those categories. Typically a class that is labeled level 1 or level 1/2 will be geared toward beginner yogis. Remember that yoga is for everybody, and any style of yoga, from Yin to Vinyasa can be beginner-friendly, just make sure it’s labeled as such.
If it’s important for you to elevate your heart rate or break a sweat during your yoga practice, you may choose to begin with one of these movement-based styles.
If you are looking for slower and more thoughtful movement, consider one of these grounding, relaxing styles of yoga that emphasize healing.
If you're more interested in connecting deeper within, seek classes that include meditation and pranayama and that emphasize a relationship with the subtle realm.
