When you surf the web searching for types of yoga, you find a mess of terms, names styles and schools. Most of the articles are concerned with modern trademarks of sequencing yoga asanas (postures) mainly created in the west in the 20th century. The yogic tradition recognizes for main paths of yoga: Karma Yoga, Bhakti Yoga, Raja Yoga and Jnana Yoga. Each of these four paths is concerned in developing a different aspect of our system (Intellect, heart, body and mind) and each of the four if practiced adds to the evolution in the other three. People have different preferences and temperaments, so one may choose a certain path of these four as her/his main practice. Dispite our predisposition to be more emotional or bodily or intellectual, etc.. as human beings we are holistic in nature, we do not identify exclusively with one aspect of our being excluding the others… thus the best thing would be integrating all the four path in our daily practice (which is known as integral yoga).The physical practice of yoga postures (Hatha Yoga) was traditionally considered to be a preparation for Raja Yoga (real Raja Yoga discussed later in this article, not the technique taught by a Brahma Kumaris).
