What style of yoga to choose?

Updated: Jul 28

After RELAXATION because you’re overwhelmed and burnt out?

Perhaps a deep rest for two hours being guided through a meditation would be just the ticket to allow you to switch off and restore your energy levels


Got MILD DEPRESSION and can’t be bothered doing anything? There are two schools of thought here – maybe a deep rest in a Restorative yoga class would be ideal, or maybe a Hatha yoga class to stir up your energy levels which might help start to lift your mood?


Here's some other class style ideas for you, which I've put together based on the questions 'what do you want from your yoga practice?' + the issues you're most concerned about
