What kind of Yoga suits you best?
Recently invested in some brand new Yoga equipment but haven’t yet plucked up the courage to use it? Not to worry; there are lots of different types of Yoga, so do a little research first to see which sort appeals to you.
As SparkPeople.com reports, Yoga can be a great activity for those who want to improve their flexibility and core strength, advance their balance and co-ordination and unwind after a stressful day.
Bikram Yoga is fast becoming one of the most popular styles as it is practised by celebrities such as Lady Gaga, Imogen Thomas and Rebecca Romijn, who this month credited the exercise with helping her lose her baby weight following the birth of her twins.
The idea behind Bikram is to sweat as much as possible in a heated environment. Studio thermostats are jacked up to between 95 and 100 degress Fahrenheit in order to promote "intense sweating that will loosen tight muscles and facilitate cleansing of the body".
If you prefer your workout sessions to be a little less exhausting, try Hatha Yoga. This is a gentle introduction to the activity, focusing on getting your poses right and deep breathing, and each student works at their own pace.
Ashtanga, or power Yoga, on the other hand, is a "fast-paced, intense" style which concentrates on constant movement from one pose to the next, while Vinyasa Yoga sets its sights on sun salutations and introduces more aggressive stretches, the news source states.
Of course, the type of Yoga that you’ll be doing all depends on what kind of equipment you’ve already got - or are thinking about buying. Yoga mats are a staple and are great for practising poses on smooth, hard floors because they won’t slip.
Then there are Yoga blocks, wedges and straps or belts for the more advanced devotee - these will all help you perfect those expert poses and make your workout that much more intensive.

- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.

- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) Carrot Oil contains Beta Carotene and Vitamin A which, by eliminating toxic build-up and repairing sun-damaged skin, helps to improve skin complexion. Antiseptic properties also assist in reducing breakouts and the formation of acne. It is also great for hydrating the skin. So mixing it with Jojoba oil may help. I would also recommend mixing Jojoba oil and Tamanu oil as both have great moisturising properties and are great for acne prone skin. Hope this helps!
- Carrot Oil for Face I have acne. I have been using jojoba oil only but I noticed my face is sometimes dry. If I add carrot oil will it help moisturize my face and clear the spots or should I join argan oil to the mix?
