Ruled by water and earth elements, people with kapha body type are bigger built. They tend to gain weight easily, which is why they are mostly overweight. Although they have wide hips and shoulders, they have great stamina, which is why they need hot and power yoga to make their body feel light.
While hot yoga is a form of yoga performed under hot and humid conditions, resulting in considerable sweating, power yoga refers to a vigorous approach to vinyasa-style yoga.
There are about 26 poses of hot yoga also known as Bikram yoga including Standing Deep Breathing (Parayma), Half Moon Pose (Ardha-Chandrasana) and Awkward Pose (Utkatasana).
Power yoga asanas include Paripurna Navasana (Boat Pose), Salabhasana (Locust Pose), Chaturanga Dandasana (Plank Pose) and Adho Mukha Svanasana (Downward Facing Dog Pose).
