Best for : People who want more fitness benefits but still desire a relaxing, risk-free workout. Those with specific problems like back pain can easily use the props to modify poses.
Not for : Again, anyone who is seeking a full-on workout might be disappointed with this type of yoga. However, a lot depends on the instructor – some Iyengar classes include an intensive series of standing poses that can provide more vigorous exercise.
Best for : Anyone who desires a more spiritual yoga, while still getting a good workout.
Not for : Meditation and chanting is not for everyone, and Kundalini puts a heavy emphasis on the mind-body connection. Those new to yoga that might be scared off by the spiritual side of Kundalini may want to start with a Hatha or Iyengar class instead.
