Gin Yoga

We’re feeling fairly rattling smug about this one, as we predicted Gin Yoga could be a factor a couple of 12 months or so in the past and lo and behold right here it’s. It doesn’t really want that a lot of an evidence – it’s yoga whereas consuming gin. And it was solely a matter of time if we’re being utterly sincere, contemplating each gin and yoga are a vital a part of the yummy mummy toolkit. Uncertain it’ll get you in form, nevertheless it’ll actually assist chill you out!


Boys this one’s for you, as a result of as an alternative of assembly your finest male good friend down the pub now you can do a yoga class collectively.

Designed as a way to encourage extra males to check out yoga (though we predict Beer Yoga was in all probability simpler) Broga has extra of a give attention to power coaching, muscle firming and a little bit of cardiovascular thrown in for good measure, simply to you realize make it that bit extra masculine ? Actually there are MMA fighters and BJJ wrestlers who already use yoga to enhance flexibility and strengthen their core (see BJJInformer for more information) and you may’t actually get extra manly than that, proper? Not that yoga isn’t in any manner non-masculine, quite the opposite it has confirmed advantages for each sexes. Nonetheless, it does nonetheless carry a distinctly feminine solely vibe to it and Broga is a way of bringing yoga to a male viewers.

SUP Yoga

SUP (Stand Up Paddleboarding) was one of many resounding successes of final 12 months. Anybody and everybody was, and nonetheless is, having a go at it. So now that we’re all so knowledgeable at it, SUP Yoga has turn into the following ‘factor’. To be sincere, the core power and stability abilities wanted to remain afloat whereas standing on a paddleboard are hardcore sufficient and if you happen to’ve mastered that then hey how arduous can it’s to do a downward canine on there too?

Critically arduous that’s how! Be ready to get moist and be something however sleek for the primary couple of classes, however think about how blissful it could be to do floating yoga with the ocean as your backdrop. Look out for this tougher sort of novelty yoga in 2020, as a result of we predict that out of all of them, SUP Yoga is the one that can turn into greater than only a passing fad.

Karaoke Yoga

Merely select your backing observe, roll out your yoga mat and prepare to belt out some tunes whereas moving into tree pose. Though yoga is usually related to calm, quiet, flowing actions it’s additionally about managed breath work which fits hand in hand with singing. For positive it’s not going to be probably the most severe of exercises and the songs you select might make or break the vibe, however we reckon you can have lots of enjoyable with this one and when one thing’s enjoyable you positive as hell usually tend to stick at it!


That is the last word in ridiculous, however then good day that is novelty yoga, proper!?! Principally, Toega is yoga for toes. Yep it’s actually, really that easy. No must attend skilled lessons for this one, as all of the (and I take advantage of the phrase ‘all’ loosely) strikes will be learnt and practised within the consolation of your individual house.

Regardless of the novelty issue, yoga for toes is definitely a great way to maintain your toes in good working order, and is very useful to runners because it helps strengthen muscle groups. Plus, it’s a incredible strategy to relieve aching toes and cramped toes after they’ve been squashed inside footwear all day.  Not a pattern that’s more likely to stick round for lengthy and uncertain you’ll see it marketed at your area people centre, however a pleasant little act of self care none the much less.


Health hybrids have been widespread for some time now – suppose Piloxing (Pilates and Boxing) and Yogalates (Yoga and Pilates) – and so it makes excellent sense that two very fashionable varieties of exercise would come collectively in some unspecified time in the future. Yoga HIIT does what it says on the tin: it combines a sequence of brief sharp bursts of HIIT interspersed with dynamic yoga poses and finishes with loads of throughout physique yoga stretches.

So as an alternative of doing half an hour of HIIT adopted by half an hour of yoga, Yoga HIIT means that you can get the very best of each worlds in a mixed exercise that slots properly into your manic schedule. However not solely does it make your exercise extra environment friendly, it additionally will increase the calorie burn whereas on the similar time lengthening and strengthening your muscle groups.

Novelty possibly, however we predict this one is greater than a passing fancy.

Snake Yoga

This one makes me shudder simply enthusiastic about it, nevertheless it appears some persons are completely up for attempting the brand new novelty pattern of Snake Yoga. It’s predominantly geared toward individuals who have Ophidiophobia (concern of snakes) with the thought being they will face their largest concern in what is going to hopefully be a relaxed and relaxed atmosphere. Personally, I’m not solely positive a sod off nice massive snack writhing round your limbs when you attempt to breathe by way of a pose is essentially going to relax you out, however hey who am I to evaluate!

To date the sort of yoga isn’t out there within the UK (to our information), however has proved widespread in Canada and the USA. Nonetheless, from previous expertise any health associated pattern that turns into a success in North America normally finds its manner over right here in some unspecified time in the future and we predict that 2020 would be the time for Snake Yoga to hit British shores. Not for everybody and definitely not more likely to hit the yoga mainstream, however we reckon folks shall be queuing as much as attempt it merely to have a go on the subsequent new expertise.

Aerial Yoga

Circus abilities, similar to trapeze and aerial hoop have been widespread health traits final 12 months, providing ladies the possibility to channel their Biggest Showman fantasies whereas working up a sweat on the similar time. It might look sleek, however supporting your physique weight whereas making an attempt to look sleek and fairly frankly to not make a tit of your self, is bloody arduous work! Exercises similar to these require core power, stability and self esteem and belief aplenty.

Aerial yoga takes these circus derived exercises and throws in some yoga strikes in addition. If you concentrate on it, lots of the strikes are very related, simply up within the air relatively than on the protection of a yoga mat on the ground. Supported within the air by carabiners and ropes, you find yourself feeling and looking a bit like a puppet. However the added assist provides you freedom to maneuver and in a position to manipulate your physique in additional methods than if you happen to have been doing common yoga. This makes aerial yoga vastly accessible to a variety of skills, from youngsters by way of to seniors and in addition folks with disabilities, as the additional assist eases the stress on joints. The main target is on power, flexibility and in addition stress aid, plus lets not overlook the enjoyable issue, in spite of everything any good novelty yoga must contain enjoyable in some unspecified time in the future or different.

Chroma Yoga

Chroma, that means purity or depth of color, works as a way of utilizing the vitality from totally different colors to vary how an individual feels after they do yoga and to hold that out with them after they depart the yoga studio. Chroma Yoga, often known as Mild Remedy Yoga, is carried out in an initially darkened room that’s then lit up by colored lights all through the session, with calming music to loosen up the senses and to reinforce these Zen vibes. One other variation is one which tries to copy your pure circadian rhythm by beginning off with blue lights to imitate your physique waking within the morning and ending with pink gentle to encourage sleep at night time. That is incredible if you happen to undergo from disturbed sleep patterns or if you happen to really feel as in case your day has received out of whack.

Pessimists, and realists, might argue that a lot of the varieties of novelty yoga described above are merely advertising and marketing ploys to attract folks in and earn a living. And I’d in all probability agree with them to some extent. Nonetheless, in an period the place many people are in search of a brand new expertise, to have enjoyable and to take our minds off of the mundane, I say what’s the hurt in attempting out a couple of of those novelty yoga lessons in 2020. Heck, you solely dwell as soon as, let’s make it enjoyable!
