It seems that there's a yoga style to suit every fitness level and personality type. If you're eager to try yoga but don't know where to start, look for a class based on the IYENGAR style of yoga.
Iyengar provides a solid foundation in the yoga poses. The emphasis is on posing with precision, concentrating deeply and holding poses for longer time periods.
The Iyengar style, because it is gentler than some other yoga styles, is also ideal for individuals recovering from an injury.
