Yogis love to try different forms of yoga. You might just fall in love with these new spins on the classic yoga practice. Which of these yoga trends have you tried?
Yoga dance: Yoga combined with dance is fun and suitable for non-dancers and dancers alike. A typical yoga dance class combines fun-filled dance movements, yoga asanas and guided relaxation. The benefits of yoga dance reach beyond physical benefits to emotional and mental well-being.
Salt yoga: It involves practising yoga in a room with walls made of Himalayan salt bricks and a yoga mat stretched out on a bed of loose salts. Salt therapy has been known to heal skin conditions, detoxify the respiratory system, get better sleep and promote better breathing.
Voga: This yoga practice is a combination of Madonna-style ‘vogueing ‘ and yoga. Yogis wear fabulous sequined clothes and blast club music while practising asanas. It can be an excellent way to have just a little fun while practising yoga.
Antigravity yoga: It is not a new concept, but it rose to popularity in the year 2016. The use of hammocks allows you to practice yoga without putting much pressure on your joints. This form of suspended yoga strengthens core muscles, increases spinal and shoulder flexibility, and prevents back strain.
Snow yoga: Ever thought of doing yoga in the snow? Flex your muscles and exercise your body and as you shovel off snow from your drive away and you will have an amazing experience. Just be sure to warm up before the practice. Just look for the Hashtag snowyoga on Instagram, and you will find thousands of amazing pictures of this latest yoga trend.
Rage yoga: It involves stretching and positional exercises along with humour and even some screaming and swearing to attain good health and mental peace. This yoga practice is ideal for those people who want all the benefits of yoga but never quite fit in to the traditional yoga classes.
