What Is Yoga?

Yoga is a simple process of reversing the ordinary outward flow of energy and consciousness so that the mind becomes a dynamic center of direct perception no longer dependable upon the fallible senses but capable of actually experiencing truth. By practicing step-by-step methods of yoga taking nothing for granted on emotional grounds or blind faith we come to know our oneness with the infinite intelligence, power, concentration, and joy which gives life to all and which is the essence of our own self. Regular practice of yoga helps one to lead a systematic and disciplined life.

There are various types of yoga out there, whether you want a physically demanding class or an easy, stress-free, relaxing, meditative class. Each and every yoga type has its own style but a bit different from the others. You will find variations depending on the teacher. Before sticking to your favorite yoga routine I recommend you give a few styles and teachers a try. Even if you are advanced yogi with dedicated practice, flexibility and variation with any one of the following styles could enhance your overall yoga performance and challenge you to break out your comfort zone. Let us have a look at some of the trending yoga types:

Aerial Yoga

It is a kind of anti-gravity exercise usually performed in mid-air usually with a hammock or silk cloth. This style of yoga is gaining popularity in the present scenario by letting the individuals fly without wings. All age groups can practice various postures in this yoga type which not only promotes balance but also minimizes stress. Here fabric plays an important role as there should be proper alignment between the body and the silk cloth in every posture.


Acro Yoga

Are you ready to experience the new twist of yoga and acrobatics? This practice combines acrobatics and yoga in form of partner work. This method involves base, flyer, and spotter, hence providing an amazing opportunity for the community. Here the base provides the support to manage the body( it behaves as a platform ). These amazing yoga poses are to be practiced together, hence making it a therapeutic practice as well. The practice of these movements requires the trust of your partner, communication and sense of unity. It promotes the power of concentration, helps in making an individual confident, and also teaches us how to stay balanced even in the sensitive positions.

The regular practice of these moves stimulates the message elements, therefore, relieving the stress. And the most wonderful part of this routine is that the 'size' does not play any role. You may think big people do the lifting and the tiny people do flying. Here this is not the case. The technique is more important than strength.


Aqua Yoga

Are you bored with the regular yoga classes performed on a mat? Want to experience a cool and stressful concept of yoga poses? Then this one is for you.

The best part of aqua yoga is that it can be performed by any ages irrespective of their critical health injuries such as joint pains, muscle pains, and obesity.

Since the body will be in contact with the water while doing the poses, with the release of gravity the body is able to find an optimum stretch. The feeling of weightlessness in the water relieves the body from stress and stabilizes the muscles furthermore removing the discomfort in the joints. Aqua yoga, on the other hand, is a low-impact exercise which in turn increases the rhythm of breath, making it suitable to be performed by the people who suffer from breathing diseases.
