I have learned it about 2 years, before that, I used to hatha yoga. I want to say they are very different. Hatha are basic, but ashtanga is more challengeable and interesting. I love it extraordinarily. :) Do u agree with me?

I joined Yoga class every sunday, but I have no idea what kind of Yoga it is. I thought they are about the same, maybe I just have lack of information about Yoga. I like it thought, it is calm and slow and relaxing.. I am now joining Yoga dance now which is also fun because we use music and dance according to Yoga position..

Let me think, how to let u understand. Hatha yoga, is static one, we do one asana(pose) after another. but Asthanga is influent, it also be called flow yoga. If you don't exprise it, I suggust u have a try. It very strange. haha~~

This kind of yoga involves synchronizing the breath with progressive series of postures-- a process producing intense internal heat and a profuse, purifying sweat that detoxifies muscles and organs. the result is improving circulation, a light and strong body, and a calm mind. I'v got some clips vedioes. if you are interested with it ,I 'd like share with you.

I've not tried Astanga as it looks too physical for me. I might try a taster class, as it does look interesting I do Iyengar yoga, which I feel is best for me. I like holding the poses for a length of time to really feel the muscles relax and soften/lengthen.

It is said that Iyengar yoga is the basic of the Ashtanga yoga. Have a try, it is really fantatic!!!!

I might just do that QueenieLee, it sounds fun. I think there is a centre near by, not sure if I'll switch completely as I've done Iyengar for a long time.
