Vinyasa Yoga

Vinyasa yoga is one of the most popular kinds of yoga in the United States, says Jen Fleming, a yoga teacher and manager at YogaWorks in Atlanta, who is certified by Yoga Alliance. Although vinyasa can be a set sequence of poses that never changes, as in ashtanga vinyasa, flow vinyasa classes will be different every time, she says.

Different styles of vinyasa yoga also include power yoga, Baptiste yoga, Jivamukti, and prana flow. These kinds of classes are among the most athletic and physically challenging, says Fleming.

It can be difficult to keep up with the pace of a vinyasa class if you don’t have yoga experience, adds Shala Worsley, a yoga instructor at Asheville Yoga Center in Asheville, North Carolina, who is certified by Yoga Alliance. “If you want to try vinyasa yoga and you don’t have much experience, try to find a studio that offers a beginner or a slow flow class,” says Worsley.
