Types of yoga, Part 4

"Viniyoga, Anusara, Kripalu, Sivananda, TriYoga, and Yin yoga"
By: Vanessa ValenzuelaTypes of yoga, Part 4

Viniyoga. Viniyoga is based on the teacher-student model in which an experienced guru or teacher of yoga creates a personalized yoga program for the student based on his age, physical fitness, health conditions and injuries (if any).

Anusara yoga. Anusara yoga is a style which combines the importance of physical alignment with a positive philosophy based on the intrinsic goodness of all beings. If you are a student of Anusara yoga, you will notice that classes are usually done in a light-hearted manner, with poses performed in such a way that opens up the heart.

Kripalu yoga. Kripalu is a yoga practice that imbibes a compassionate approach, with emphasis on meditation, spiritual transformation, and physical healing. It allows you to move at your own pace and focus on your inner self. With a style associated to Hatha yoga, Kripali was brought to the US by yoga guru Amrit Desai in 1960.

Sivananda yoga. Sivananda yoga is based upon these principles: proper exercise, breathing, relaxation, diet, positive thinking, and meditation.

TriYoga. This style of yoga involves the performance of a series of flowing, dance-like movements which intuitively came to yoga guru Kali Ray (Kaliji) in 1980 during a group meditation. There are seven levels developed by Kaliji, starting with a slow, rejuvenating, and relaxing practice of a series of asanas (poses) and pranayamas while focusing on the body’s alignment. The class is usually accompanied by music and ends in deep meditation, which further promotes inner peace.

Yin yoga. Yin yoga focuses on stretching connective tissue around the joints instead of the muscles, as with other yoga styles. This directly addresses the physical demands of sitting still in one position for extended periods of time (as in meditation or several hours of office work).
