Chill with Some Beer Yoga Well, the name should be enough to tell you that this form of yoga requires a bottle of beer too. No, you don't drink your beer to cool off after a yoga session, you drink your chilled brew while stretching your body. We repeat, this is not a drill.
The practice was started in Germany. The yoga instructors believe that the joy of drinking beer and the mindfulness of yoga complement each other, and make for an energizing experience.

Obsessed With the Extraterrestrial? Do Alien Yoga Do you remember the way Baba Ramdev rolls his abs in waves? Well, that yoga has now a name--Alien Yoga. Why the weird name you ask? No, it wasn't named by a space scientist. The Alien Yoga got its name from the due to the stomach's strange contractions and its appearance.
It may be a little difficult to master, as it requires full control of your core muscles. But, you can always practice by rolling your stomach muscles on the beats of your favourite song.

Cannot Ride A Horse? Practice Horse Yoga Instead Not everyone can ride a horse. But, if you still want to try something that involves being near a horse, you can try horse yoga. All you need to do is balance yourself on the back of a horse, as you do yoga! A little scary, right?

This trend, which was invented by aerial performer, former gymnast and a Broadway choreographer, Christopher Harrison, also includes other techniques like aerial acrobatics, calisthenics, Pilates, etc.
Smoke Up With Ganja Yoga Yes, you heard it right. You get to smoke up some ganja (cannabis) while you are doing your asanas.
