As with food and fashion, fitness has entered the fusion arena. A new strain of yoga has hit mainstream, one which combines the ancient Indian discipline of balancing the physical with the spiritual through controlled movements and breathing with modern hip hop and ballet. The three practices seem to in conflict with each other but fitness professionals Gillian Marloth and Teigh McDonough make it work. Their fitness program, Yoga Booty Ballet (YBB), combines elements of strength training, modern dance and classical ballet with hatha, Ashtanga and Kundalini yoga. Instead of sedative, low tempo music, YBB uses the sound of live drums to motivate, while an energized combination of mind and body exercises improve stamina, flexibility and core strength, as well as posture and balance. First introduced at Crunch Fitness in Los Angeles, well known for being ahead of the curve in terms of fitness fads, YBB already been written about in Us Weekly and Fitness Magazine. YBB is appealing to a wide demographic, yogis and newbies alike. Adding a modern music and dance element to this workout makes it more approachable for those who may find traditional yoga intimidating. Now anyone can get their yoga groove on with one of YBB's fitness DVDs or VHS tapes, available for two payments of $19.95, plus shipping & handling.
