5 Ridiculous Yoga Trends Or The Next Big Thing?

Yoga has been evolving for thousands of years. Those awesome physical exercises that we use in your videos, those have only been around for a few hundred years. It’s hard to imagine Buddha doing a downward dog or a warrior pose. Actually, it’s hard to imagine Buddha doing anything other than a buddha pose.

That’s why when it comes to breaking down these seemingly ridiculous yoga trends, we’re going to put away our judgy face (we’re yogis after all), and we’ll put it to you instead: what do you think of these new yoga trends? Which one is the next big thing?

1. Yoga Trance

We’re all about dancing around in a hot dessert, but we thought that was what Burning Man was for. Joking aside, living in the present, expanding your range of motion, and getting in some cardiovascular exercise are things you’ll get out of a traditional yoga class too. What do you guys think?

2. Face Yoga


Does this mean someone is going to make yoga pants for your face? While we’re not entirely sure if this video is real or not, it does make you realize that there are some pretty goofy looking yoga poses out there – even in traditional yoga. But as long as they work and have scientifically proven benefits, who cares what you look like, right?

3. Motorcycle Yoga

We’ve all heard of paddle boarding yoga, which go together like white on rice, but did you know that you can do yoga on a motorcycle too? How did you think James Dean got that body? Sounds relaxing? We think so too.

4. Doga

When the gurus told us to practice downward dog, is this what they meant? Criminals, mailmen, and pizza delivery guys take note – fluffy is going to be a lot more limber now.

5. Dungeons and Dragons Yoga

Here is how to meet that special someone of your dreams. Someone who is as down with downward dog as they are with D&D. Now can someone please combine yoga with monopoly?

Bonus! Yay. (who doesn’t love bonuses) Spray On Yoga Pants

Okay, so maybe this one isn’t real. But we couldn’t resist : )

We want to keep you safe!

Please consult your physician, assess your fitness level, and follow all safety instructions before beginning any exercise program, nutrition plan, and/or using any equipment.

Body By Yoga provides a variety of exercise programs, some of which are physically demanding and high-intensity in nature. For this reason, you must listen to your body, use common sense, take breaks, and hydrate as needed to avoid injury. If at any time you feel any discomfort, pain, dizziness, light-headedness, shortness of breath, or nausea, stop exercising immediately and consult your physician. Incorrect or excessive training can result in serious injury or death.

When doing any outdoor workouts or activities, be aware of your surroundings and avoid anything that could hurt you or disrupt your exercise, especially when walking or running in public areas such as sidewalks and streets.

If you have any unique or special medical conditions, such as if you’re pregnant, have diabetes or asthma, or if you have a history of knee, ankle, hip, shoulder or spinal (back or neck) problems, you must consult your physician to understand all potential risks and complications of using our exercise programs, nutrition plans, and/or equipment, and receive approval from them to proceed before beginning. Failure to do so could result in significant injury to you and others (including, if applicable, your unborn child). By engaging in any exercise program, nutrition plan, and/or using any equipment, you assume all dangers, hazards and risks of injury or death.



Certain programs may utilize equipment, such as yoga mats, yoga blocks, yoga straps, chairs, foam rollers, and other equipment which, if not used correctly, could lead to serious injury or death. Carefully review all safety, care and use instructions and manuals prior to beginning.

For your safety, you must:

Use any equipment shown in the workouts only as demonstrated, using proper form.
Inspect any equipment for wear or damage prior to each use and refrain from using any equipment that appears damaged, worn or defective.
Keep children, pets and any other obstacles away from equipment and exercise area at all times.
Always use a secure, proper, and stable anchor for any equipment that requires hanging or attaching.
Always exercise caution during use of any equipment to make sure you do not lose your grip or control, such as making sure your hands are not wet or sweaty.
Ensure exercise bands are firmly secure and assembled to prevent slipping, snapping, recoiling and injury to yourself or anyone else.
Ensure your workout bench and pull up bar is stable, strong enough to hold your weight and does not move during use. If you do not think you can safely perform exercises with your bench or pull up bar, or you do not have the proper equipment, you should do the modifier exercises instead.

To the fullest extent permitted by law, Body By Yoga and its parent, affiliate, and subsidiary companies will not be liable to any person or entity for any injury, death, damage or loss caused or alleged to be caused directly or indirectly by any exercise programs, workouts, nutritional supplements or plans, equipment (including without limitation the Body By Yoga mat and Body By Yoga blocks), advice or any other products, services or materials.
