Yoga is considered one of the most effective ways to reduce stress, anxiety, and negative emotions. It would make you more powerful and positive in life and it is good for your health. The nice thing is, there is a yoga variant for everyone. And more and more are coming. These are the latest trends.
1. Laughter Yoga
The laughter meditations in this yoga are very liberating and there is room for fun and relaxation. But allowing less happy emotions is just as important. All emotions are given space through breathing exercises, relaxation exercises, and movements.
The playfulness that we often forget due to the hustle and bustle of everyday life, you will definitely encounter again during this lesson.
The laughter can feel a bit forced, especially at the beginning.
2. SUP Yoga
SUP Yoga is done on a three-meter surfboard: a Stand-Up Paddleboard. The yoga exercises are done on the water.
Fun on the water is combined with the benefits of yoga.
It is a lot more difficult to keep your balance and that can be demotivating.
3. Anti-gravity yoga
This form of yoga has come over from New York and is also called Aerial Yoga, Acro Yoga, Hammock Yoga, or Swing Yoga. You can do floating yoga exercises in a cloth that is attached to the ceiling. The fabric is also used to support you during floor exercises so that you have a minimal chance of injuries.
This form of yoga is playful and self-confident, especially when you end up hanging upside down like an accomplished acrobat at the end of the class.
In the beginning, you may feel dizzy after class.
4. Barre yoga
This yoga form combines yoga with ballet techniques. Yoga postures and elegant ballet exercises provide flexibility, agility and stronger muscles.
It is good for posture and can help with back, neck, and shoulder complaints.
You must like ballet.
5. Fight yoga
Fight yoga combines an intensive workout with traditional yoga poses. Perfect for people who like an intense workout, but also want to become more flexible.
Good for condition, strength, coordination, and flexibility.
This is actually two different workouts in one and as a yoga enthusiast, you should want it.
6. Tantric yoga
Although tantra in the West is quickly associated with spiritual sexual practices, that is not what tantra yoga is about. This yoga form is about exploring consciousness. You do relaxation exercises, aimed at letting go (of tension, stress or urge to perform) and there is a lot of attention for the breath.
Very suitable to release tensions, both for body and mind.
It is a fairly spiritual form of yoga and you have to be open to it.
