I’m going to be honest; the closest thing I do that’s considered yoga is me practicing my inversions after my own HIIT workout. I’m not really a fan of going for yoga classes per se, and I think the biggest reason is because I think it’s not really my thing. I’ve tried bikran yoga several times, and after several trial classes I realised I just got bored of the monotony.
I mean, kudos to those who do practice yoga religiously – it’s not easy mastering those poses when you’re not very flexible or strong. But I’m just more inclined to active, hyper boot camp-style stuff.
So, why am I sharing this nugget of information that fell into into my inbox? Because I think it’s an awesome way to get yoga virgins off their bum and be part of a community of yoga enthusiasts from around the world. Pure Yoga will be celebrating International Day of Yoga with an International #YogaRelay on 21 June, with a 24-hour relay involving 5 cities from New York to Asia.
