Yoga has taken Western countries by storm the last 30 years. Normally used in Asian countries spawning from Jain, Buddhist and Hindu meditation rituals, Yoga has now evolved into over 100 different styles.
The style that’s seems to be most popular among the younger generation is Acro Yoga. These are the people that do yoga poses, on top of another person doing yoga. It’s very interesting to watch and takes extreme core strength and concentration to do.
Another very popular type of Yoga is Bikram Yoga. Most people know it as Hot Yoga. The founder, Bikram Choudhury, created this yoga type from traditional Hatha techniques. The room stays at 104 degrees with 40% humidity. Unfortunately Bikram Choudhury has been accused and sued over disparaging acts and the training camps associate a cult-like atmosphere. It’s safe to say Bikram Yoga is not at the high point it once saw.
