What is Yoga? What types of Yoga are there out there in Bali?
The word yoga, from the Sanskrit word yuj, means to yoke or bind and is a group of physical, mental, and spiritual practices and disciplines which originated in ancient India. Classical Yoga is a system of self-realisation that was codified by Patanjali sometime around 200 – 500 AD in a text called The Yoga Sutras.
1. Hatha Yoga
In many studios, hatha classes are considered a gentler fom of yoga. However, the Sanskrit term “hatha” actually refers to any yoga that teaches physical postures. Check out The Practise in Canggu for Yoga Studios offering Hatha Yoga.
2. Vinyasa Yoga
Dynamic practice that links movement and breath together in a dance-like way. In most classes, you won’t linger long in each pose and the pace can be quick, so be prepared for your heart rate to rise!
3. Iyengar Yoga
Yoga blocks and blankets, straps or a ropes wall will help you to work within a range of motion that is safe and effective while practacing Iyengar Yoga. Each posture is held for a period of time.
Best when: Injured
4. Ashtanga Yoga
Consisting of six series of specifically sequenced yoga poses, you’ll flow and breathe through each pose to build internal heat. The catch is that you’ll perform the same poses in the exact same order in each class.
Best when: Routine lover
5. Bikram Yoga
Prepare to sweat! Bikram consists of a specific series of 26 poses and two breathing exercises practiced in a room heated to approximately 105 degrees and 40 percent humidity.
Best when: heat-resistent
6. Hot Yoga
Similar to Bikram, it’s practiced in a heated room. But teachers aren’t constrained by the 26-pose Bikram sequence.
Best when: heat-resistant freethinker
7. Kundalini Yoga
You’ll perform kriyas — repetitive physical exercises coupled with intense breath work — while also chanting, singing and meditating. The goal? To break through your internal barriers.
Best when: deeply spiritual
8. YIN Yoga
The opposite of a faster moving practice like Ashtanga, Yin Yoga poses are held for several minutes at a time. This meditative practice is designed to target your deeper connective tissues and fascia, restoring length and elasticity.
Best when: uptight
9. Restorative Yoga
The mellow, slow-moving practice with longer holds gives your body a chance to tap into your parasympathetic nervous system, allowing you to experience deeper relaxation.
Best when: stressed out
