Derived from the Sanskrit term "Hatha," which encompasses yoga teaching physical postures, this practice translates to "force." Hatha yoga serves as a gentle introduction, featuring slow movements that encourage you to hold each posture for several breaths.

Ashtanga yoga is the choice for those ready to dive into a challenging practice. It consists of a series of six sequenced poses, demanding a fluid flow and synchronised breathing to generate internal heat. These poses must be executed in a specific order, either by crafting your own sequence or following instructors with pre-defined movements.

Resembling the renowned Bikram yoga, hot yoga unfolds in a heated, humid room. Unlike Bikram, it does not adhere to the same 26-pose sequence. The elevated temperature allows for increased flexibility and deeper poses, while the profuse sweating aids in detoxification. Hydration is key when engaging in hot yoga, as the heat is turned up.
