What are the Intense Yoga Styles?

Info

Today, we can see a lot of variations in yoga if we compare it with the traditional yoga style. In this article, we will talk about some intense forms of yoga which have been developed over the years.

1 – Jivamukti

The practice of Jivamukti is a vinyasa style of Hatha, in which the positions are held in fluid, vigorous and in coordination with breathing sequences. As part of the system, philosophical aspects of traditional yoga is always exploring, and includes chants, mantras, religious images, incorporating music as vibrational therapy and contact with the divine, breathing exercises for regulating vital energy, relaxation and meditation. Jivamukti was created by David Life and Sharon Gannon, from their training rooted in classical yogic tradition systems. This method emphasizes the ancient spiritual paths and ethical principles of yoga such as ahimsa, the principle of non-violence which is inherent vegetarianism, animal welfare and the environment, in addition to working with the community.

2 – Acroyoga

This is comparatively newer type of yoga with many currents. The acroyoga has mixed the spiritual awareness and asanas with games and the pleasure of acrobatics in addition of affectionate factor of oriental remedial therapies. Most of the followers of this new and exciting yoga discipline are yogis, dance performers and circus lovers who are willing to enlarge their limitations and experiment, and overcome any frights in order to establish their physical practices ingrowth involving teamwork, trust, coordination and mutual support. For some it raises doubts that if it is called ‘yoga’ and certainly there is nothing classic, but the ancient discipline and wisdom have many possible interpretations that this is an attractive proposition for those who want to deal with the challenges and fun.

3 – Forrest Yoga

It is a recent practice that is based on four principles i.e. breathing to increase the life force and the connection with each cell of the body, strength and attachment to the land through a demanding physical work, long time positions that are maintained and repeated to promote detoxification and muscle work. It talks about integrity in positions to open the opportunities and reduce the risks and a connection with the spiritual and intuitive force as an area of freedom. It is an intense physical practice that aims to adapt to the physical and inner needs of the contemporary life. Therefore, it is working with specific body parts, not necessarily traditional asanas. It is a challenge for those who want to go beyond their limits and grow not only in their practices but also in a parallel manner, empowered and apply the teachings of yoga into their lives.
