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.
