Traditional Yogi

You do not practice yoga because it's a hot trend; you're drawn to its endurance through 5,000 years of Indian culture. You seek out teachers who are educated in the traditional yogic practice, philosophy, and spirituality, and you feel connected to an ancient, time-tested tradition whenever you chant in Sanskrit or use yoga to strengthen your mind-body connection. For you, yoga isn't just something you do in class; it's a part of every moment of every day.

Athletic Yogi

Spirituality is something you get elsewhere in your life. When you step into a yoga class, you're there to sweat. Bikram (hot) and power yoga are where you feel most comfortable, because you leave feeling like you've gotten a great workout. You see the spiritual benefits of yoga, and you may even enjoy them, but you wouldn't do yoga if you didn't like the effect it has on your muscle tone.
