There are in total 22 primary Yoga Types.
This can become quite confusing for those new to yoga and are not sure which types are best suited to their personal situation and uniqueness.
Below, I will go through a general description of what each of the types mean, and I will also include a number of yoga types that have been developed for healing in specific situations.
There is really no wrong choice, because all yogic paths and traditions ultimately lead to the same outcome: peace and inner wisdom.
If you are drawn to one path in particular, then give it a whirl and try it on for size. If it feels good, stay with it; if it does not, try something else.
For me, I have chosen to focus primarily on the art of Kundalini Yoga, which is about the power of awareness and potential in each individual. This reflects for me, my entire essence and purpose in life, and you will see this reflected in my mission statement.
Although there are many reasons why I have chosen the Kundalini Yogic path, I really connect to it because it is a Raj Yoga, which mean Royal or Great. As such, Kundalini Yoga combines the practice of a number of yoga types, including Hatha, Mantra, Laya, Ashtanga and Raja Yoga.
Kundalini Yoga is a complete system, which is very important to me, and because I know the most about this yoga type, I have written a specific page on kundalini yoga benefits for those of you wanting further information.
