UNCOVENTIONAL HYBRID STYLES OF YOGA
DOGA Practicing yoga with your pet, often outdoors. It blends two great things, and a dog is an expert at being in the moment. LAUGHTER YOGA Lots of emphasis on breathing exercises and laughing. Little movement, but it lowers stress and boosts happy hormones. MARTIAL ARTS YOGA A combination of martial arts and yoga moves, known as Budokon. This style of yoga eases tension and increases mental focus. THE NEXT YOGA TREND-BREATHE Yoga is a combination of controlled breathing and movement. Your body and mind can be effected by your breathing pattern and rate according to research. Here is a basic breathing exercise: (1) Get comfortable. Lie or sit down. Close your eyes. (2) Gently breathe in and out through your nose. Do this with equal inhalation and exhalation. Do this without overfilling the lungs or trying to push out all the air. (3) Count as you breathe( in-two, three,four; out-two, three, four). You can also use a breath-pacer app. (4) Slow it a bit more once that pace is comfortable. Between four and a half and six breaths per minute is the ideal rate.
