There are so many types of yoga but how do you decide which one you should do and what should you wear? We have broken down our favourites to help you pick a style that is right for you…

 

Hatha Yoga;

Hatha Yoga is one of the oldest yoga practices. It’s a relatively slow and gentle class with lots of focus on breathing using pranayama (breathing exercises) and time spent holding poses so it’s great for beginners and those who want to get their focus back to their body and their breath.

Wear our super soft bamboo jersey Blissful Wrap to class and throw it on when you are in Savasana.

 

Yin Yoga

Often slow paced and relaxing, Yin Yoga positions can be held for up to 5 minutes making it challenging on the core muscles. It’s designed to help improve posture, circulation and flexibility.

Wear our ‘Go To’ Vest to Yin Yoga. Made from the softest bamboo it will keep you cool and comfortable throughout some of the more challenging positions. 

 

Restorative Yoga

Gentle, relaxing and the perfect class for the end of the week. Poses are held for up to 10 minutes in restorative yoga. The use of props is encouraged as is a focus on the breath to increase flexibility and calm the nervous system.

Wear our bamboo yoga harem pants for the ultimate in comfort so you can focus solely on your breath. 

 

Iyengar Yoga

Developed by B.K.S. Iyengar this type of practise involves the use of props such as belts, blocks, chairs and blankets to help teach you the correct alignment for each pose. Traditionally poses are held for much longer and there is a strong focus on the musculoskeletal alignment within each asana.

Try wearing out bamboo ‘Flow With It’ leggings so you can focus on your form in some of the more demanding positions. 

 

Ashtanga Yoga

Ashtanga yoga is often noted as a modern day form of classical yoga. Brought to the Western world by K. Pattabhi Jois it is designed to purify the body using often demanding poses focusing on synchronising the breath and movement through a series of fast paced sequences.

Fitted at the hips our ‘Smooth You Tee’ will stay in place throughout all postures so you can concentrate on getting your alignment correct.

 

Vinyasa

Vinyasa classes are more vigorous in style and involve movement synchronized with breath. Practice involves Sun Salutations and it’s a great way to get energised and grounded. The perfect start to the day!

Our Conquer Cami is perfect for vigorous classes. Designed with a long body it stays in place and made from bamboo it wicks away sweat to keep you cool and comfortable.  

 

Bikram Yoga

Famous for using heat to help enhance your practice, during Bikram yoga you will be immersed in temperatures of around 40 degrees. This is said to help flush toxins and allow you to move more deeply into your poses. Great for those suffering with tight muscles and flexibility issues.

Our Karma Kapris were designed for Bikram yoga. Made from sweat wicking and temperature regulating bamboo and organic cotton they are easy to wear and move in.

 

Kundalini Yoga

Kundalini Yoga involves the use of chanting, mantras, meditation and dynamic breathing alongside its exercises. Each position is synchronised with the breath and the practice was developed to open up each of the chakras an awaken the energy in the Kundalini.

 

Wear our ‘Be Grace’ Batwing to Kundalini yoga and slip it on when going into mediation and breathing exercises. 

 

We recommend giving them all a go and switching them up regularly so you get the best of each practice. Let us know your favourite and why in the comment box below.
