Interesting! You have me down as Anusara and I'm an Iyengar teacher!?!
With reference to Viniyoga it was not created by TKV Desikachar. For more information on this look at KHYF page on face book for an article by Kausthub Desikachar on Viniyoga
In fact, BKS Iyengar is 91 years old.
Shocked that Forrest yoga is not listed here!?!!?!
I usually don't even take time on quizz but this actually got me right, Iyegar sounds just like me.
My favorite Yogas are not even listed. I do Burmese yoga styles called Dhanda which is with a staff, Longi which is with a rope, and letha is done with a partner. They may sound complicated but they are really easy. And by using the rope, staff and partner, I have been able to strech farther then just with hatha alone. I have also been able to learn how to safely put muscles back in place, deal with some of my old injuries safley and "re-educate "my body so that I don't strain myself but heal.
I find that all is good for each person has a different nature and way of thoughts. But i feel that we should not complicate life so much. Yoga is tough for the mind and the body in the world in which we live.-take it as a training of body and mind and forget all the hullabahu-It cannot become Coca cola light.
Human mind is the creator of all that we do and we are destroying ourselves. let it flow and people just see the bright side of your lives that will lead us all to safety and confidence in our selves.All has to be for the benefit of others and not only oneself. Why search for so many forms when what we really want is there . right here
May all have a practise to be happy and healthy
Wow - 20 styles! 22 including the comments! It's almost as bad as the breakfast cereal aisle. Don't forget Acro Yoga, Pre-Natal Yoga, Partner Yoga, Karma Yoga, Forrest Yoga(!!) ....
Most towns don't have 22 local yoga studios. Why not just pick up a phone book, give the local studios a call, and then choose one of them? ;-)
Shadow Yoga (founded by Shandor Remete) needs to be mentioned...
A thorough article and a great read. I would also like to mention Qi yoga - a Japanese style of yoga which is growing in popularity as well.
