The art of yoga has been in practice for ages and is said to have several healing and wellness benefits. Practicing it regularly is said to increase ones flexibility, strengthen and tone muscles, improve respiration, and also keep stress and anxiety at bay. If you’ve mastered the OG Power Yoga and Ashtang Yoga, it’s the right time to jump into something new.
Here are some unique, quirky forms of yogas for all those prefer experimenting and making it fun!
1. BEER YOGAThis buzzy yoga form requires the participant to take a sip every time before stretching or turning their bodies in several different postures and positions. One can socialize, refresh, relax and enjoy in the moment without worrying about getting a beer belly or flab during these sessions.
2. DOG & GOAT YOGADoing yoga beside dogs and goats is all things fun and furry as one lets these creatures climb on themselves, lay on their mats, sniff and lick, and move around as the person does their poses. This yoga is not just a stress-buster, but also helps relieving anxiety and depression.
3. TANTRUM YOGAFor all those with serious anger and temperament issues, this yoga is a must try since it leaves one calm and composed and acts like a catharsis. Participants usually shout out loud, stomp their feet, yell and cry, and bang their chest, which helps un-bottle all the suppressed emotions.
4. LAUGHTER YOGAThis type of yoga works best when done in a group as all engage in eye contact, infuse child-like innocence and burst into a loud, contagious laughter. Laughing out loud makes one healthy, energetic, refreshed and also flushes your brain and body with oxygen.
5. NAKED YOGAAlso known as Nude Yoga or ‘Noga,‘ it is a form of yoga that demands one to let go of their inhibitions or insecurities so that they feel free and liberated. The person frees themselves of all their clothes and baggage, tries to llive in the moment and attain a sense of their physical space.
6. TRAMPOLINE YOGAPracticing yoga on a soft, bouncy surface reduces stress, makes one feel light and happy, improves stability and stimulates the production of good hormones. One does low-impact exercises, stretches, holds poses and jumps on the trampoline while maintaining their balance and stability.
7. PADDLEBOARD YOGADoing yoga asanas on an unstable, imbalanced surface urges one to be focused and extra careful as there are chances of tripping or falling in the water. Balancing on a paddleboard or surfing board requires the person to engage their core strength and muscles, and be alert, active and motivated at all times.
