5 Top Yoga Trends for 2020 We Can’t Wait to Try

Yoga hasn’t been around for centuries for its irrelevance or inability to evolve with the times. Modern times bring us all sorts of innovations and twists concerning highly regarded practices of the past. Something about improving your life through movement, relaxation, and meditation continues to draw the masses, generation after generation.

So what’s the driving factor keeping yoga a strong fitness trend in 2020? Well, one might argue that the foundation of why yoga is essential will always be the substantiating factor. But when it comes to capturing the attention of non-believers, the yoga community has had more up its sleeve.

1. Yoga at Your Fingertips

Not exactly a feature of the new year, but digital access to yoga classes has certainly not been left in 2019. People are busier than ever, and the accessibility of a yoga class that you can pop into in the comfort of your own home or on the go is an unrivaled convenience.

2. Yoga for Men

In some cases, referred to as “Broga,” yoga for men is a trend that we’re loving. These classes tend to foster a welcoming environment for the men who don’t feel as comfortable as they would like in a typical yoga class full of bendy people. They instead cultivate an atmosphere for men to relax and reap the benefits. Men are free to work on their flexibility, as well as build strength in workouts designed for the male physique.

3. Alcohol Yoga

Somewhat of a controversial trend, people are both loving and hating the idea of incorporating alcohol into yoga classes. Classes offering beer or wine during practice have created a little bit of a stir (or shaken) in terms of their dubbed “inappropriateness” and distaste. At the same time, some people adore the idea. I suppose we will need to wait and see if this trend lasts the test of time, but for now, classes are filling up.

4. Partner Yoga

Yoga is praised for enabling connectivity and spirituality, and in considering what this can do for couples, it might be worth something. A yoga class can make for a fun date in general as it’s challenging, relaxing, and sensual. However, classes specifically designed with relationship dynamics in mind are emerging for the purposes of both pleasure, and a form of therapy.

5. Yoga for Anger

The idea of releasing anger during yoga still holds steady in 2020. It turns out, people are still angry, and people still love yoga. The idea is to incorporate the harnessing of anger throughout the practice to eventually release it. One of the first established forms of this was “Rage Yoga,” pioneered to include swearing and expression. Today, hybrid forms addressing deeper aspects of anger, such as trauma, are emerging.

Engaging in any yoga style has its benefits. No matter what yoga trend strikes your fancy, the most important thing is to do what feels good to you and to practice safely.
