can anyone define fusion yoga a little better for me. Did a 20 minute session and found it really hard on my elbows and knees. I've been doing yoga for weight loss and yogalates I think it is called.

I can only change what I am willing to acknowledge

All yoga is Core yoga. You must have a strong core to do poses properly.

Almost all yoga falls under the umbrella of Hatha. Ashtanga is a practice which follows a prescribed set of poses in series... one must be able to complete one series before moving on to the next.
Vinyasa generally means to poses are linked with either sun salutations or a set series of moves between poses.
Power yoga to me means lots of challenging moves in fast moving vinyasas and lots of sweat ans sore muscles the next day.... LOL

I've just started doing Core Yoga and I'm just wondering which category it falls into, Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Power?

There's so many and I'm still quite confused. :/

Its more than just vanity.
Its not about being slim, its about being healthy.
