Inside Yoga vs other styles

Inside Yoga

Other yoga styles*

We speak the language of our students to explain the different poses

Speaking partly or mostly sanskrit to explain something

Updated every year to make it even better

Same since always, sticking to the tradition

Integration of constantly evolving knowledge and science of anatomy into the asanas

Alignment stays the same, no matter what science found out about the human body, tradition is more important than healthy alignment

Healthy alignment for the body, considering the circumstances of modern everyday life (sitting a lot, computer, phone etc.) e.g. shoulders to the ears and back

Same alignment since invention of the body, no matter how the everyday life influenced and changed the body

No chanting of mantras, focus on the physical practice

Mantra chanting, singing OM

YOU are your best teacher, AYNII (All You Need Is Inside); the feeling the body is giving you is the right feeling

Praise of gurus. Tradition as well as the big teacher names like Iyengar have been most influential yogis and are to be followed.

Our teachers are certified and have to do a practical + theoretical exam to become an Inside Yoga teacher. We have a very high standard for the exams and usually a few don’t make it with the first try.

No exams or an exam that can not be failed leading to lower standards

Strong, well known adjustment techniques that help the student to improve the practice in a very effective way and to feel better

No adjustments at all or very weak, non effective adjustments

*Not all comparisons are universal as there are many styles in yoga with a lot of differences. The goal of this comparison is aimed to get a better understanding in general of what Inside Yoga is and what it’s not.

The History behind this style


new to yoga

Young Ho attended his first yoga class ever in Encinitas, California. The taekwondo master was amazed by the ease and powerful calmness he experienced.
2000 - 2007

learn from the best

After several teacher trainings with David Swenson (Ashtanga), Shiva Rea (Prana Vinyasa), Bryan Kest (Power Yoga) and John Friend (Anusara) the popular videos of Rodney Yee inspired Young Ho to bring yoga to Germany.


years of hard work

Hardly anyone knew about yoga in Germany at that time. Young Ho slowly started to teach “mental balance” (a combination of zen gymnastics and yoga). He worked hard for many years and introduced people to yoga.


founding Inside Yoga

After the yoga studio he was working for went bankrupt, Young Ho turned a bitter ending into a new beginning and opened his own studio: Inside Yoga in Frankfurt, Germany.


creating Inside Flow

Only a few months later at a yoga retreat in Austria, Young Ho had the idea to connect the steady breath of a vinyasa flow to the beat of modern music. Inside Flow was born that night.


there is no try

The next step of the yoga evolution was the launch of the premium online yoga platform TINT: Your digital space to practice Inside Yoga online and attend online teacher trainings from anywhere.
