Yoga is a very diverse practice that seeks to connect the mind, body and soul. It has been around for thousands of years but has become increasingly popular in recent years, especially due to its mental health benefits. There are many different styles of yoga and new types of yoga classes are continuing to pop up.
If you’re looking to branch out and explore a new type of yoga, here are three yoga trends you can try:
A yoga HIIT session combines high intensity exercises with dynamic yoga stretches. It can help you burn calories as well as build strength and improve flexibility. This style of training allows you to sculpt muscles and get your cardio in.
If you’re looking for something a little more light-hearted and enjoy the company of furry friends, there are puppy yoga classes. It’s the same as a typical yoga session, except you’ll have puppies wandering around during the class. You’ll get to experience the health benefits of yoga in a fun, playful environment. Being surrounded by puppies can also help to boost your mood, reduce stress and improve your mental health.
If you’re wanting to try more challenging yoga poses, look no further than aerial yoga. Instead of doing poses on your yoga mat, you use a silk hammock that hangs from the ceiling. The hammock offers additional support for common poses such as downward dog and pigeon, and makes it easier to perform inverted poses, such as handstands and headstands. It can also help you to strengthen your core and upper body as you’ll be using your arms, shoulders and abs to hold onto the hammock.
