Yoga Alliance embraces all types of yoga. Given the wide variety of approaches available today, it can be very confusing to determine what type is right for you or your facility.
On the Yoga Alliance directory, we ask our teachers and schools to help you learn about their approach to yoga by using friendly descriptions, which we’ve explained below.
In addition to the types of yoga we identify on our directory, it’s common for a teacher or school to identify with a style, tradition, or lineage of yoga. Common names you may hear or read about include Ananda, Anusara, Ashtanga, Bikram, Iyengar, Integral, Kripalu, Kundalini, Power, Prana, Sivananda, Vinyasa and many more. Each style has unique characteristics, and it can be helpful to consult with a specific teacher or school, or review the details on their profile, to learn more about their approach to yoga.
