Which type of yoga should you do?

Yoga is one of those hidden treasures that make up part of the daily routines of thousands of people throughout the world. Since it first appeared in the Indus Valley, almost 5000 years ago, it has constantly been spawning new disciplines.

Gentle or relaxing yogas

WHO ARE THEY FOR?
Gentle and relaxing yoga is suitable for anyone, of any age, for maintaining fitness and flexibility as you grow older! It is great for active youngsters or retirees looking for well-being activities, for mums who need space to breathe, or for people who have stopped doing sport but want to get back into it gently without risking injury.

Dynamic yogas

WHO ARE THEY FOR?
As the name suggests, dynamic yogas are physically demanding and therefore designed for younger people in good health. 

They are particularly good for people who already do another sport such as running, diving, surfing or dancing and who need a high degree of concentration, flexibility, endurance, resistance, etc. Indeed, yoga is an excellent complement to other activities and it is becoming increasingly common to see high-level athletes using it to boost their performance. 

Young people just entering the world of work and teenagers are also fans of these disciplines because they get rid of stress and help them regain their energy.

Final note:
It is important to note that the physical aspect of yoga is not the sole aim of the overall practice. Any good practitioner of yoga uses the physical posture practice wisely as a means to prepare the body and mind for meditation.
