I doubt that there's any one kind of yoga that is better for RA than the others, but I'd guess that any of them might help. The differences between the different types isn't very clear to me. I'd say, just find a class, try it out for a few times, then decide if it's helpful or not. Might be a good idea to try 2 or 3 different classes before settling on one.

This isn't exactly and answer to your question, but it is related. It's a link to a summary of an article about a mega analysis of studies about yoga and quigong for low back pain in the elderly. Spoiler: no help.

This is an in-depth workshop on yoga for Rheumatoid Arthritis at the yoga international website with detail on modifications, chair yoga, bed yoga, and doing yoga during flares. If you don't have time to do the full workshop, here are the basics. Yoga is a great way to keep joints moving after diagnosis of this painful condition. The key, however, is to take it slow. It's a marathon, not a sprint. Going too hard too quickly can do a lot more bad than good.
