1. Snake Yoga

Oh No! This seems worst than the Goat Yoga trend doesn't it? When it comes to snakes, you can count me out. However, this misunderstood creatures are very useful in helping you to practice that weight training through yoga. This practice comes from a reptile-enthusiast from Vancouver, Canada. He created this practice to spread an awareness of how these snakes are the creatures that often labeled as scary but their not. Snakes are very nice when you get to know them.So why not give that a try!

6. Yoga Wheels

Add some equipment in your yoga regiment like the infamous yoga wheel that is made from a plastic wheel that you can use to help you with various poses when practicing your routine. The use of the wheel helps with your back-bends and foreearm-stands as well as acts as a core workout due to the balancing from your body on top of the wheel.
