I don’t even know how to describe what I’m writing about…
Forget aerial and playlist yoga; there’s a new water-based namaste craze just in time for summer courtesy of Manhattan’s trendy Tmpl gym. Dubbed “Holy Water,” the class is making waves (pun intended) for utilizing AquaBase boards, the world’s first floating yoga mats, and has become so popular the gym has had to modify its sign-up process.
Led by instructor Joana Meneses, class participants strive to ensure proper yoga form while also maintaining balance on the thin boards. However, falling in the heated saltwater pool is part of the fun and one portion of the class even encourages it.
I love new challenges to healthy habits exactly that, a habit, but sometimes, I do wonder what’s a waning fad, and what’s really going to work?
What do you think? Would you try this?
