Explore Different Types of Yoga

Did you know there are many different types of yoga? In fact, yoga goes far beyond the typical poses most people associate with the practice. No matter your age, physique or level of flexibility, there’s a type of yoga that can suit your body and individual needs. Southwest Yoga Atlanta offers hatha, yin, restorative and more with new instructors and yoga styles being added all the time. Keep reading to learn about some of our most popular types of yoga and descriptions of our class offerings.

Hatha Yoga

This is one of the most common types of yoga and perfect for beginners. Hatha is an umbrella term that encompasses the general postures and breathing of all yoga styles. A typical hatha class may include classical yoga postures and breathing exercises that can help students build a strong foundation for more challenging practices. Learn more about hatha yoga.

Yin Yoga

Yin Yoga is a slow-paced, therapeutic style of yoga. Yin postures are more passive postures, mainly done on the floor either seated or lying down. There are no sun salutations, no planks, no warriors, no jump throughs! There is in fact no dynamic movement and usually no standing poses at all. Yin Yoga is unique in that you are asked to relax into the posture, allowing the body to soften and release naturally without pushing or straining. It is not uncommon for postures to be held for three to five minutes, even 10 minutes at a time. The time spent in these postures is much like time spent in meditation, as the mind shifts from yang to yin, or from active to passive.

The key to practicing Yin Yoga is finding stillness in each position. The goal is to access the deeper tissues of the body, such as connective tissue and fascia, and many of the postures focus on areas that encompass a joint such as the hips, sacrum, and the spine.

Restorative Yoga

The keyword in restorative yoga is relax. Restorative yoga practice is a supported practice where a student should expect to surrender the body and the mind. A relaxed body is followed by a relaxed mind. A typical restorative practice features support tools such as blocks, straps, blankets and pillows that, combined with stillness and steady, rhythmic breaths, lead to total relaxation. This style offers a gentle pathway to deeper alignment, symmetry, and flexibility. Students are not at all managing the poses, but are able to gently alleviate where tension lies in the body. At the end of a practice, students discover that they had practiced poses they did not think were possible for their bodies!

Sunday Wind Down

Sunday Wind Down is a hatha yoga class designed to utilize the energy within one’s heart to achieve a cleansing. The class combines simple asana, or poses, with pranayama, which is simply intentional and mindful breathing. Mudras, hand gestures, are incorporated as well to further explore the benefits of the practice. After taking our physical journey through the sequence, class is rounded out with a guided meditation known as yoga nidra which means yogic sleep. This allows one to relax more deeply and emerge feeling a sense of renewed inner peace. This class is welcome for all levels of experience.

Flow and Meditation

Flow and Meditation is a class that allows students to hone in on the true purpose of yoga, to meditate and connect with our higher selves. We move through 45 minutes of Hatha Yoga in order to prepare our bodies and minds to be comfortable during fifteen minutes of meditation. This class allows for a longer savasana in order to truly get to know ourselves.


Yin yoga is a relaxing, meditative practice where specific poses are held for extended periods (typically 3-5 minutes). The practice is designed to target the joints and deep connective tissues of the hips, pelvis, and spine in order to strengthen and lengthen them. This is a great class to help to increase circulation through the body’s energy pathways, improve flexibility and posture, release trauma in the body, and encourage mindfulness. Yin is a perfect compliment to balance more vigorous yoga practices or activities like running, cycling, and cross-training. This class is suitable and encouraged for all levels of practitioners.
