Power Yoga (Ashtanga)

This style of yoga involves doing specific sequences of Ashtanga Yoga poses, which are done in a continuous, flowing, fast-paced manner. You move swiftly from one pose to another, timed with every inhale and exhale.

Best for: Ashtanga Yoga is typically recommended to those who prefer fast-paced and more rigorous styles of yogic practice. It's not that you really have to do the poses quickly after one another, but the flow of the poses is definitely more challenging than in regular Hatha yoga practices.
