Yoga is a Sanskrit word which can be explained as the union of the soul with the divine. According to the Yoga sutras of Patanjali; an ancient philosophical text in which the sutras are short aphorisms addressing a particular topic, in this case yoga, there is a more elaborate definition of the term "yoga chitta vritti nirodha." which translates as "yoga is the cessation of the fluctuations of the mind."

Named after and developed by B. K. S. Iyengar, is a form of Hatha yoga that has an emphasis on detail, precision and alignment in the performance of posture (asana) and breath control (pranayama). The development of strength, mobility and stability is gained through the asanas.
Iyengar yoga often makes use of props, such as belts, blocks, and blankets, as aids in performing the asanas. The props enable students to perform the asanas correctly, minimizing the risk of injury or strain, and making the postures accessible to both young and old.
Vinyasa essentially means movement synchronized with breath and is a vigorous style based on a rapid flow through sun salutations. You may also see a Vinyasa yoga class referred to as a flow class, which refers to the continuous flow from one posture to the next. On the other hand, Ashtanga is a system of yoga that was brought to the modern world by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois.
During an Ashtanga class you will be led nonstop through one or more of the Ashtanga series, while being encouraged to breathe as you move from pose to pose. Each series is a set sequence of asanas, always in the same order. It is typically fast-paced, vigorous and physically challenging.
On subtle levels prana represents the pranic energy responsible for life or life force, and ayama is control. Best known as the formal practice of controlling the breath, which is the source of our prana, or vital life force, pranayama exercises are especially designed to control the rhythms of pranic energy and achieve healthy body and mind.
In Sanskrit bandha means to lock, to hold, or to tighten. It also refers to a lock in and of itself. There are 3 principle bandhas in the body, and a fourth that ties them all together. Bandhas conduct breath through the body, working against the force of gravity and achieving lightness. They allow energy to flow. This is technically something very subtle, therefore physical action and muscle contraction are only a small part of bandha. The bandhas help you regulate and control all your internal systems; hormonal, sexual, metabolic, digestive, and more.
Kriya is a Sanskrit word that means 'action'. In the context of the risen kundalini, kriyas refers to involuntary movements which result from increased life force pranic energy in the body. Those who meditate or do yoga regularly may also experience kriyas during their practice. On the other hand, mudras are sacred hand movements described in some yogic texts. They can be seen in classic statues of buddhist and hindu deities. Daily practice of kriyas and mudras helps attain a better health, cure different diseases and it also helps to go deeper into meditation.
There are many things in life that are beyond our control. However, it is possible to take responsibility for our own states of mind and change them for the better. Meditation is a means of transforming the mind. It helps develop concentration, clarity, emotional positivity, and a calm seeing of the true nature of things. A regular meditation practice will help you understand the patterns and habits of your mind, and create more positive ways of being. With regular work and patience these focused states of mind can deepen into profoundly peaceful and energized states of mind.
