 Ashtanga                      

This method of yoga involves synchronising the breath with a progressive series of postures - a process producing intense internal heat and a profuse, purifying sweat that detoxifies muscles and organs. The result is improved circulation, a light and strong body, and a calm mind.

Vinyasa

Vinyasa yoga is often fast paced, and the postures are linked together in a series of movements that are synchronised with the breath. The continual movement, from one pose to another, gives you an added cardiovascular benefit, which more traditional forms of yoga do not have. The routine practice of vinyasa yoga can increase muscle strength, endurance and flexibility, and reduce levels of stress.

Bikram           

Bikram is the precise sequence of 26 postures and two breathing exercises which must be performed within 60-90 minutes in a heated room to allow the body to stretch, detoxify, relieve stress and tone.
