7 Yoga Styles to Fit Every Body and Mood

4 September 2013

There was a time when I didn't really think much of yoga. As a runner, I'm used to sweating it out, lots of intense movement, burning tons of energy, and actually going places. But then I decided to test out a yoga class at my local gym. And it was…pretty intense. The next day I was sore, but felt relaxed and invigorated. And I could hardly wait to go back and give the Vinyasa class another try. What I hadn't realized before was that yoga encompasses a wide variety of styles and methods of practice, each of which is based on the foundation of breathing, balance, mindfulness, and spirituality.
