Different Yoga Styles: Hatha Vinyasa Yin Restorative – Which One Should You Practice?


Yoga Upload with Maris Aylward – In this video, we talk about 4 of the common yoga styles you’ll find in yoga studios, gyms, and online classes. These four are Hatha Yoga, Vinyasa or Vinyasa Flow Yoga, Yin or Deep Stretch, and Restorative Yoga. Learn about the benefits each style has to offer. I also share my thoughts on how the style we choose and the way we practice may change over time.

Coming soon to the channel:

  1. Thank you Maris for this video. It has clarified many aspects of styles of yoga out there and which practice can be beneficial to different people. This will help me as a yoga teacher and a student. I love to watch your other videos as well.

  2. Google the word "Yοmzοzο Kena" (Google it) to locate this yoga information meant for anyone who`d prefer to understand more about yoga exercise. The guide book could be utilized by aspiring new yogi or the one who has been doing yoga for years by then. The guide clearly shows the postures, breathing, meditation and ways to shed a few pounds daily. .

  3. Lovely explaination! Thank you so very much. This is the first "how to" video I could watch. The others I glanced at were not as calming as yours. Your voice is soft and clear and the background sounds are appropriate. Namaste

  4. Maris, you are such a lovely woman! Thank you so much for your knowledge and advice! Yoga is such a beautiful art and practice. I am so fortunate I have found it. Thank you again! Namaste.

  5. This is exactly what I needed. Thank you for this video. I’ll start with Hatha since I’m a beginner. 🙂 But Yin sounds great too, as per your advice to try a style opposed to our personality.
