Bored with your usual yoga routine? Up your game by trying these unique yoga classes.
First, it was the downward dog. Then it was the half-moon pose. Then it was the crow pose. Where yoga is concerned, you’ve gone from basic to advance after many arduous years of practice. But what’s next when you feel that it has all plateaued?
Add a little kick to your practice at these interesting yoga classes. Sometimes, a little boost is all you need to breathe new life into your asanas!
Why do yoga solo when you can do it in pairs? But it’s not just any basic yoga pair work we’re talking about here. Acro yoga combines yoga elements with acrobatic movements, creating beautiful shapes with every pose. It all looks amazing in photos — but the process is a beautiful challenge that involves engaging core strength, coordination, open communication and focus to achieve that. The result? Toned limbs, a stronger core, improved balance and hopefully new friendships!
Also known as “elevated yoga”, “flying yoga” or “anti-gravity yoga”, aerial yoga pushes your yoga practice by having you hold an asana whilst suspended in the air. Balancing in the air only means that core strength is fully engaged so expect tighter abs, a perkier bum, and leaner limbs as a result. Here’s what you can expect at your first aerial yoga class.
This dynamic practice is a clever amalgamation of yoga with pulse-raising HIIT and for some studios, even the additional fat-burning callisthenics. Keep this going and you will observe a lifted and more sculpted physique in the long run.
