A bearing is a machine element that constrains relative motion to only the desired motion, and reduces friction between moving parts. In different word one can understand it like an addition element between a stationary and a moving part which hence gives relative motion between these two. The movement can be either linear or rotary. Rotary motions are most common using bearing. The major types of bearings are
1) Journal bearings
2) Rolling element or antifriction bearings
 
Others are
3) Flexure bearing
4) Magnetic bearing
