There are dozens of yoga styles to choose from, but not every style is the perfect fit for every person. But how do you choose between mysterious-sounding names such as Ashtanga, Kundalini, Bikram, and Kripalu? As Meagan McCrary discovered when she began exploring the options, finding the right style is essential for establishing a steady yoga practice. Here McCrary describes the most prominent yoga styles in depth, comparing their methodology, philosophical and spiritual underpinnings, class structure, and level of physical exertion. Those new to yoga will discover that they have options and can confidently select a class that meets their expectations, while experienced practitioners will expand their understanding of the world of yoga.
