The founders of YogaWorks, Maty Ezraty, Chuck Miller, and Alan Finger came from different branches of yoga and wanted to share their common love for yoga. These three visionaries led the teaching of Asana with a unique approach inspired by classical Ashtanga, The BKS system Iyengar and Viniyoga.
Yoga Works is a combination of 3 kinds of Yoga:
Ashtanga Vinyasa (a combination of breath and positions with power and flow)

The combination of dynamic exercise with the right attitude, body alignment and movement in sync with breathing, offers an integrated body and spirit training system.
