    there is something addictive about astanga, but that´s been out of the question since an astanga teacher bust my wrists. Iyengar bores me unless it´s at a high level and they don´t let you in the high level classes (normally) unless you have done the basic ones for years with them....

    Flow is nice, as long as it´s kept sane (not too manic or too fluffy). I find Bikram too sweaty and generally ick. I like yin yoga, but obviously it´s not a main practice for athletic people. Never tried anusara

    nada yoga, prana yoga (sound yoga, which is therapy with tones or music, and breath yoga, just simply breathing meditation)

    I love hatha yoga because it has very little structure around it and you never know what you're going to get. I've been doing lots of yin lately because I've been stressed and it helps to open up to joints.

    I'm not sure which yoga school it is.... but whatever Tony Horton is doing in the P90X program, that's it.

    I like most of the kinds with the fruit on the bottom, as long as they don't add sugar.

    All yoga is eastern.... "yoga" is from the sanskrit word "yuj" meaning "to join".. so - called because it joins the mental health with the physical heatlh, like the greeks and romans used to think also "mens sane in corpore sano" any modern yoga is just an adaptation of the eastern one

    Ashtanga all the way. The focus on breath is awesome, and it feels like that's the background of most yoga teachers at one point or another. I like my teacher too because it very much is an individual practice, so everyone is doing there own thing and learning at their own pace. I learned how to do a headstand a month ago! Yay!

    Bikram has a lot of awkward neck stretches that feel really hurtful to me. Plus, a school of yoga that doesn't have a down dog? WTF??

    any yoga where you get a stupid instructor that says every session, "when doing the crocodile, don't arch your back. Arches are for McDonalds." I stopped going to her class. It was so annoying. Plus she was a fat girl. I like classes that allow you to push your limits. Like doing advanced crow positions, or lifting your legs behind your head and advanced balancing. Routine classes bore me.

    Ashtanga Vinyasa is an intense workout for guys in top condition. You keep the room normal temp. or hot. You have your mat and towels. By the time you're done, you feel amazing - but ready for a shower. Partnered Ashtanga Vinyassa is my favorite. This isn't for beginners or for the out of shape.

    This isn't either of us, btw, but shows you what partnered Yoga is like.
