The newest yoga trend on our radar? Glowga!

download

We’re always on the lookout for a new take on practicing – and right now we have glowga on the brain!

Glowga is practicing in near-darkness with only black and neon lights for illumination during the class – or should we say party?

Jam out while getting grounded with this unique style of class that offers combinations of rock n’ roll, glowsticks, and your favorite poses! Classes come in a variety of styles from Bikram to Vinyasa and are quickly spreading across the country.

The benefits? Practicing in a darker setting with less visual input heightens your brain’s other senses and increases awareness of those senses to help your body keep its balance while practicing.

Looking for some brightly colored clothing and vibrant props for your next yoga – or glowga – class? We’ve got you covered at barefootyoga.com!

Celebrity Health Tips: Your Guide to the Health Secrets of the Stars

We all have the tried and true health tips that work for our body and mind – whether it’s the amazing effects of setting aside time every morning to practice some poses (we bet you knew that would be at the top of our list!) to only eating clean, unprocessed foods.

Ever wondered what some of the go-to methods of the stars are? Look no further than our behind the scenes list below!

1. Madonna

The original material girl practices Ashtanga yoga every morning – an amazing way to improve balance, flexibility, and strength. Now that’s what we call en vogue!

2. Shailene Woodley

The Divergent star peruses farmer’s markets any chance she gets for all of her produce needs to find the freshest and most local foods available!

3. Maria Menounos

Menounos lives by measuring health with how she feels, not her dress size. That’s something we can work with! Focusing on a primarily healthy, strong body can make it easy to choose nutritious food options that don’t sound like a chore – while still letting yourself indulge in that piece of chocolate every once in a while. We think that whatever the Access Hollywood star’s method is it’s working for her!

4. Carrie Underwood

This singing sensation stays away from simple carbs and sugar in her breads to get the most nutrients possible with whole grains. Whole grain bread that fills you up, tastes great, and gives you a sustainable boost is ideal for both your physical and mental energy. It can’t hurt that she’s also a dedicated yogi herself!

5. Lena Dunham

Lena Dunham

The Girls star practices acro yoga (acrobatic yoga) to build a strong core and stay in shape. Acro yoga is a creative, active, and fun way to stay fit and keep your body feeling great!
