hey hey hey! When I first started practicing yoga, I was like “um, HOW ARE THERE SO MANY DIFFERENT KINDS/THIS IS JUST LIKE RELIGION/THE UNIVERSE IS CRAZY”. Basically, I feel you.
There are too many kinds of yoga for me to try and explain them all now, but I think this poster might give a little clarification. If it helps, I personally prefer Vinyasa flow blended with Ashtanga. It’s high endurance and more athletic, but without being uncomfortable.
