How many yogas are there?

Infinite.

In every village in India there are several yoga teachers who are part of a live tradition. They speak no English and were taught by their teachers verbally and physically. This line of teaching yoga from teacher to pupil goes back in an unbroken line many thousand years. There are no books assigned no texts to look at as authoritative and absolute statements of truth. The tools are experience and consciousness and with trust something magical happens. A new yoga is born with each student and it grows exponentially with each generation. You can not possibly count the number of yogis in India.

Each practices one of an infinite number of ways to do yoga and through their practice expands that infinity.
