Each yoga system, school, and teacher typically emphasizes different attitudes, alignments, and actions in yoga poses. These are what I call the "3 A's," and they serve as the main categories differentiating the various yoga styles and schools.

For instance, some types of yoga focus on strong self-effort and serious discipline, while others focus on relaxing, softening, and playfulness. Some classes are very up-tempo, rigorous, and structured, while others encourage students to go slowly and explore, without a set sequence. Furthermore, some yoga styles focus on a great deal of precise anatomical alignment, while others emphasize inner feeling and the breath.

All of these aspects of various yoga styles have merit, so in each class you can gain something to improve your practice physically, emotionally, or spiritually. If you prefer one style, you can use everything that you encounter in each class to your advantage to help you grow and improve in your favorite style of yoga.

On the other hand, taking regular classes in different yoga styles can have a downside. One common problem is that the student gets conflicting technical instruction from different teachers.
