Yoga has Changed Over time


Yoga has changed over time in ways that make it more practical for modern men and women with time-compressed lifestyles and responsibilities everywhere. This article from Times of India explores some of the modern applications of yoga.

 “The new styles of “yoga” that are gaining popularity around the world are fun, fast and will make you serene while working on a six-pack, it has been claimed.

While acro-yoga “blends the wisdom of yoga, the dynamic power of acrobatics and the loving kindness of healing arts”, naked yoga, which many may not deem “fun”, is certainly racy.

In hip hop yoga you do sun salutations to the soothing sounds of Eminem and in “Doga” people essentially use their dogs as props to deepen their poses. Two new recent styles are stand-up paddleboard (SUP) yoga and hoop yoga.

Charlotte Piho of Work Out On Water paddled into the middle of a lagoon on her paddleboard to do her daily yoga ritual on a day when she found there were no waves to surf and it was too hot to go inside for a yoga class.

Her lessons in Sydney begin with a gentle paddle, but once you’re out on the water it’s yoga as usual. Similarly, Gloria Tong found a way to fuse yoga with her other passion – hula hooping. After attending workshops in the United States, where it’s a “big scene”, she began hooping in Sydney.

Tong felt that traditional yoga moves, or asanas, and the flow of hooping were a natural fit. “I think different types of yoga are making yoga more accessible to everyone,” quoted Tong as saying. “It always comes back to the same principles of yoga: breathing, connecting and moving with your body,” she said.



Yoga has changed over time in many ways. You can incorporate yoga into your life no matter what your lifestyle is, whether you have only a little time or not. Explore the different methods, combine methods or come up with your own so you can have a more relaxed and healthy life.
