I am down with a little booty-bouncing in the club, and even intrigued by most of the new abstract yoga classes offered these days. However, the hottest new thing to happen to yoga has caught me by surprise. First of all when I think of a yoga studio, I think of a calm serene room with bamboo floors, and earthy colors. A room flashing with strobes and rocking a disco ball has never really jumped into my associations. When I was sent this video by a friend, I was totally bamboozled and completely confused. How can Yoga vary so much from it’s roots? This video shows the edgy side of Yoga. First of all its sporting some wicked sweet tunes and the instructor slings a hip-hop tone throughout the narrative. Clearly this is a non-traditional experience that is meant to put some hop in your hips.
If you have taken a hip-hop yoga class and would like to explain the process, please post it in the comments. We all want to know how to pop it like it’s hot and get our yoga on. Thanks.
