There are many types of Yoga but we concentrate on three different ones, each with its own particularities:

Bikram Yoga

Bikram Yoga is a system of yoga synthesized from traditional Hatha yoga techniques and popularized beginning in the early 1970s. A Bikram Yoga classe usually consist of the same series of 26 postures, including two breathing exercises. Bikram Yoga is ideally practiced in a space heated up or close to 40 °C

Vinyasa Yoga

Vinyasa means “breath-synchronized movement,” and Vinyasa yoga is a series of poses that will move you through the power of inhaling and exhaling. Vinyasa movements are smoothly flowing and almost dance-like, which explains why it is sometimes referred to as Vinyasa Flow or just Flow.
