Old product, new packaging. This mantra seems to always work in enticing people, it seems. And the ancient practice of healthy and mindful yoga is no exception to the rule. After all, changing times call for changing trends. How else would you stay motivated and stick to the practice otherwise?

So, here are five super-healthy and super fun modern-day versions of yoga that can keep you motivated to practice yoga and get a healthy body of your dreams:

1. Family yoga
The modern-day hectic life leaves us with little or no time for our loved ones or our own selves for that matter. However, the all-new trend of family yoga classes can solve both the issues together by allowing you to spend time with your family while working towards your own health.

This unique and healthy bonding experience is worth a try for sure.

2. Toe yoga
Yoga for the face has been on top of the chart for many years for its ability to give you a sculpted face and prevent signs of ageing. However, toe yoga is the way to go this year—especially if you’re a beginner at yoga.

This trend that involves stretching out the toes in different ways can be practiced in the comfort of your home with the help of instructive videos or a yoga instructor.

Plus, it can give your stressed and closed toes some much-needed relief, blood flow, and help you gain balance while warming you up to perform other yoga poses with ease.

3. Yoga HIIT
First there was power yoga that involved a more rigorous and intense form of yoga for weight loss, then yoga was combined with pilates (yogalates) for better stretching and flexibility, and now there’s yoga HIIT for the combined benefits of high intensity interval training and yoga.

It involves a cardio-intensive workout while stretching your body and working on its flexibility too. Surely, a time saver, we say.

4. Chair yoga
If your body is stiff as a board and you face a difficulty in sitting on the yoga mat, chair yoga can be a great start for you. This form of yoga involves practicing less-intense yoga asanas sitting on a chair.

Once your body becomes flexible and you’re more comfortable with the asanas, you can surely take it a step further and intensify your yoga moves.

5. Karaoke yoga
Remember how the beer yoga trend rocked the world due to its so-called “fun element”. Well, the alcohol consumption aspect of it made it fizz out very quickly. However, another fun form of yoga has surfaced to keep you motivated and make yoga sessions more entertaining.

Karaoke yoga, it is. You strike a yoga pose and sing along and have some fun. Sounds exciting, doesn’t it?

So, try these unique yoga trends and bring about a change in your daily schedule.
