Everything in this world falls into a category, from the finest creature to the giant living being. We all are part of a system. By system we mean an organized method, with respect to time and place that eases our work of any kind. Systems, typology and methodology are here to help us simply our life. Yoga on the other hand helps balance one’s soul inside-out. But by the term Yoga, one cannot leverage its complete potential without some basic understandings. Yoga can be and is branched into several categories(Hundreds I would say).
But the origin and typology can be simply said using just four terms.
· Raja Yoga
· Hatha Yoga
· Bakthi Yoga
· Jnana Yoga
