These last two superfresh styles of yoga go hand in hand, hand to mouth, and hand in yoga pants. While you won’t see them on official summer yoga festival schedules (Hanuman, Wanderlust, Bhakti Fest), you will witness their gleeful practice in public. In general, Vinoyoga precedes Solooseareya — these styles are intrinsically linked. Ready to get your glug on and your clothes off?!
Part 5 of the 5-Part Series: 10 New Yoga Styles Taking the World By Storm
Vinoyoga + Solooseareya
9 ) Vinoyoga (vino-yoga; origins: the Italian and Spanish word for wine, Viniyoga)
a. Common Poses: Drunkassana and Moon Slurrrutations
b. Props: Whatever shit you can grab to keep yourself upright. A slew of fellow slobbery Vinoyogis is always helpful — they run in packs. Also, must have a vi-totaler to drive you home safely after practicing.
c. Benefits: Everyone, and we mean everyone, is more flexible when snookered.
d. Deepen the Pose: If your liver is an advanced Level 3 practitioner, give The Yoga Drinking Game a whirl!
e. Celebrity Practitioners: Snooki, Charlie Sheen, Lady Gaga, and Paula Abdul.
10 ) Solooseareya (so-loose-are-ya; origin: Anusara)
a. Common Poses: Leg, er, hip-openers, stripper backbends, and lots of Downward-Facing Doggie Pose
b. Anatomical Focus: Opening the heart leads to the unfolding of the groins. Scientifically proven.
c. Beginner’s Tip: Lubrication of the…joints…is key.
d. Props: Try a vegan-friendly faux leather yoga swing.
e. Celebrity Practitioners: Paris Hilton, Justin Timberlake, Kim Kardashian, and Tiger Woods.
