Yoga is meant to calm you down while you get a good stretching workout. Once your session is done, you feel relaxed and ready to seize the day.
Well, let me introduce you to Rage Yoga. The end result is also to get you calm and fit but through a much different method. Rage Yoga involves yelling, swearing, and drinking beer. What else can you ask for?!?
Rage Yoga founder Lindsay Istace explains the method on her website: “a practice involving stretching, positional exercises and bad humor, with the goal of attaining good health and to become zen AF. More than just a practice, Rage Yoga is an attitude.”
Istace added, “My practice gave me a strong body-mind connection and a new appreciation for my body. I learned how to slow my mind, feel good in my body and built some decent pipes while I was at it. It helped me overcome addiction and weather a lot of personal obstacles. It kept me healthy and sane!”
Ashley Duzich, a Rage Yoga instructor, said, “We are all angry about something and we all have been holding onto an ‘F’-bomb for a little bit too long. So that’s what this does – is – it allows you to have a safe space to let go of your and frustration and rage in a healthy way… and then also wash it all away with some ice cold beer.”
As of right now, there are three locations that offer Rage Yoga classes: two in Canada (Calgary and Edmonton) and one in Houston, Texas. I have a feeling this will get very popular very soon.
