If you answered: 

Mostly A's - You should try yin yoga!

Yin yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga that focuses on deep stretching to increase flexibility in your muscles and tissues. Poses are generally held for anywhere between 2-5 minutes (sometimes up to 15!) and props are used to help support your body in each position. As well as being great for flexibility, this style of yoga gives you the opportunity to reflect inward and really bring attention to the sensations that you are experiencing in your body and mind.

Mostly B's - You should try restorative yoga!

The primary aim of restorative yoga is to completely relax your body, mind, and nervous system. With the use of props such as blankets, cushions, and eye pillows, you’ll be guided through a set of floor-based poses designed to make you feel completely safe and supported with little to no stretching. Think of restorative yoga as giving yourself a big hug!

Mostly C's - You should try vinyasa yoga!

Vinyasa is the practice of transitioning smoothly between poses to the speed of your breath. As well as increasing strength and flexibility, this style of yoga will also help you to improve your breath control. Many yoga teachers refer to vinyasa yoga as a moving meditation! It’s a good idea to be familiar with the most common poses in yoga before starting a vinyasa class, but don’t worry too much if not - you’ll learn through practice!

Mostly D's - You should try Bikram yoga!

Bikram yoga is a style of hot yoga that follows the same sequence of 26 poses in every class. Although this might sound boring, it’s anything but! Practicing the same poses allows you to learn the postures by heart and easily monitor your progress. What makes Bikram yoga even more interesting is that it can be practiced anywhere from 50-90 minutes at 100 degrees Fahrenheit!
