100 Relaxing Yoga Innovations

From Punk Rock Yoga to Naked Meditation

— March 28, 2012 — Lifestyle
Whether or not you practice yoga, there is no doubt that you'll be intrigued and fascinated by these yoga innovations. The ancient practice has gained an incredible amount of publicity thanks to its celebrity followers like Madonna, Lady Gaga, Jennifer Aniston, and perhaps most famously, many of the Victoria's Secret Angels.

From Alessandra Ambrosio to Gisele Bundchen and Miranda Kerr, the Angels credit yoga with helping them lose their post-baby weight and getting back on the runway.

These yoga innovations are anything but ordinary, such as age-defying yogis and downward facing doggies, but the outrageous qualities of each one makes them all memorable. So whether you want to try some sci-fi stretch poses or you want to sign up your toddler for children's yoga, these yoga innovations boast a variety of creative options.
