When choosing a yoga class, there are a few things that will help you decide. Think about why you practice: do you want to sweat, or do you want something more restorative? Think about your needs and preferences: do you want to be pushed, or do you want a gentle class?

Still having trouble deciding which yoga style is right for you? This chart can help you choose. And remember, you don’t have to take the same type of class every time. Feel free to mix it up to suit your mood.
