What are the differed types of Yoga and why is Yoga good for you?

There are many variations of Yoga, each style of Yoga has a slightly different definition or interpretation. See some of the styles listed below:

 Hatha Yoga

Hatha practices include a mix of asana (poses), pranayama (breathing exercises), and meditation elements. Perfect for anyone looking for a balanced practice, or those in search of a gentler type of Yoga.
