The most common course to find is Hatha as it is the most popular yoga style, although there are many styles and multi-style combinations and course emphasis.
Hatha mixed with Vinyasa is very popular, as is a singularly focused Vinyasa, or an Ashtanga and/or Vinyasa training.
There are schools that focus on Meditation, that put a great focus on the skill, deepening the connection to the spiritual side. Or Therapeutic programs which will include Ayurveda and Nutrition.
Most programs are a mix of yoga disciplines and styles. Most of us love to mix our yoga, enjoying the heat of Ashtanga and/or Vinyasa, or the hot of Bikram or Power Yoga; and the longer-held poses and slow stretching of Restorative and/or Yin Yoga.
Then there are trainings with a focus on Iyengar, Kundalini or Tantra Yoga.
Many styles and disciplines can be practiced together in one course, you could find one that includes Aerial or Acroyoga, Yoga Nidra and the Energy work of Kundalini and Tantra.
