Namaskar Rebecka,

Both of the Hatha Yoga styles you mention are complete and excellent. The depth of Iyengar and Kripalu Yoga gs far beyond what is labeled as beginner Yoga. These styles are beginner friendly, but also contain deeply advanced practices within.

The definition for advanced Yoga in the west is: Physically chanllenging, competitve, and often unsafe. This is where most Yoga students get hurt, because someone jumps off the couch and into a "Fitness Yoga class."

Worse yet, the higher aspects of Yoga are not physical at all.

Other Yoga styles which have much depth and will respect the student's needs are Restorative Yoga, ViniYoga, and Kali Ray's TriYoga. This is not to say they are exclusive and I hope someone else will mention their favorite "Gentle Style."

Jai,
