What Is Alien Yoga?

May 23, 2017

There have been so many new trends in the Yoga world that it's hard to keep up! 

If you visit any of the local Charlotte breweries you may have seen the signs for Craft Yoga or Beer Yoga! Essentially you go to the brewery or the lawn outside, do some yoga, and after you drink beer. I mean what a great idea!!! 

A few weeks ago I told you about Goat Yoga. That's yoga on a farm where baby goats will get on your back and make sure your in the right form during your downward dog. 

And now the latest Yoga trend... Alien Yoga. I cannot even begin to imagine what it may be. It's not a type of yoga, but rather an odd pose where people make their stomachs look like something from another world. 

What the what?!?
