I understand that....but how do we get there is the question...I guess numerous yogas are just different ways....btw, here are some of them I have found definitions of.
Agama Yoga: Mental Hatha Yoga
Agni Yoga: Living through freeing the fire within by completing desireful acts.
Anahat Yoga: We all need something to rely on....this teaches to rely on yourself.
Ananda Marga Yoga: Sum of Pra'rambhika Yoga, Sa'dharana Yoga, Sahaja Yoga, Vishesha Yoga, and Rajadhira'ja Yoga.
Anusara Yoga: (Tantric philosophy + hatha yoga) What we see through our senses is god...Maya is within us...and it goes away through Hatha Yoga.
Vamachara Yoga(left hand path - tantric): Transgressive, Hardest, neither nondual nor dual.(Tamsic)
Madhyama Yoga(mid path - tantric): unemotional interpretation.(rajasic)
Dakshinachara Yoga(right hand path - tantric): asceticism and meditation.(Saatvik)
NeoTantra Yoga: Salvation through having sex.(together)
Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga: Purifies the body through heating it by Hatha Yoga postures.
Hatha yoga: based on freeing 3 muscular locks from our bodies; mula(root lock), udiyana(abdominal lock), and jalandhar bandha.(throat lock) Also frees 9 Dhristis Locks;
There are, in total, nine drishtis that instruct the yoga student in directing his or her gaze.
Each pose is associated with a particular drishti. They include:
Angusta ma dyai: to the thumb
Broomadhya: to the third eye, or between the eyebrows
Nasagrai: at a point six inches from the tip of the nose
Hastagrai: to the palm, usually the extended hand
Parsva: to the left side
Parsva: to the right side
Urdhva: to the sky, or inwards
Nabichakra: to the navel
Padayoragrai: to the toes

And last and probably the least popular...Mantras break the mental locks.
Bhakti Yoga: Easiest dual method, path of unconditional and unselfish love.
