WHO ARE THEY FOR?
As the name suggests, dynamic yogas are physically demanding and therefore designed for younger people in good health.
They are particularly good for people who already do another sport such as running, diving, surfing or dancing and who need a high degree of concentration, flexibility, endurance, resistance, etc. Indeed, yoga is an excellent complement to other activities and it is becoming increasingly common to see high-level athletes using it to boost their performance.
Young people just entering the world of work and teenagers are also fans of these disciplines because they get rid of stress and help them regain their energy.
WHAT TYPES OF YOGA ARE THERE?
Ashtanga: this type of yoga is based around a series of poses that are linked together at a faster pace. It uses different breathing techniques (Ujjayi + Vinyasa). As it is very dynamic, it helps purify the body and rid it of toxins.
Hot yoga: inspired by Bikram yoga, named after its founder, sessions last around one-and-a-half hours and take place in a room heated to 40°C. These classes tend to attract people who want to move around, improve their flexibility, and sweat, as well as people aiming to lose weight.
Iyengar: this is a very physical and postural yoga that requires a strong focus on breathing. In order to achieve perfection in their poses, yogis use straps, bricks, walls, etc
