Why yoga? which yoga?

Yoga is a form of exercise often suggested for people who suffer from stress to give a calming effect to their bodies and minds. It is also known to provide enough physical challenge to build strength, stamina and flexibility. Moreover, mental strength is necessary and plays a key role in strengthening the physical body. Regular yoga practice is not only to relax the brain, but also to provide strength to the body, both physically and mentally.

To find the perfect style of yoga that suits you best, here are a few suggestions:

Hatha yoga: This form of yoga supports the link between the mind and body. Being one of the traditional forms, it also keeps the breathing pace in check and calms the mind with the help of meditation. This method will work great if you want to work on your movements by making them beneficial for your mental health. 

Ashtanga yoga: This dynamic style of yoga is based on flowing movements. Each and every movement of this form is directly linked to inhalation and exhalation. After mastering the basic asanas (movements,) the focus is laid on breathing for a calm and relieving effect, which is attained by keeping the mind attentive while challenging you to strengthen your muscles. The flow of movements makes this form best if you sport a hectic routine and wish for more steadiness in your life.  

Bikram yoga: This style of yoga poses a great test for both the mind and the body. Physically, it is quite similar to Ashtanga yoga, but is much more challenging, as it pushes you to prove and increase your physical and mental willpower and strength. 

With these and so many other varieties, there surely is one particular yoga style that can meet your needs and preferences. Each form of yoga has its own exclusive challenges, and with regular practice, their potentials and benefits are endless. Go on, let yoga make you stress-free and strong!
