About Time: You Practised Yoga to EminemBy Alicia Grimshaw
We know what you’re thinking. Yoga to Eminem, really? Answer: yes. 2020 has truly been the year of surprises, and here we are banging on about another quirky fitness trend hitting the mainstream.
We’re all for a new exercise concept here at AT, and we have to be honest: getting our namaste on in lockdown has been tough. If you’re lacking motivation, hit a fitness plateau, or in the mood to try something different, we think it’s About Time you tried Bulldog Yoga. Here’s what you need to know:
Bulldog Yoga: The Lowdown
Bulldog Yoga is a completely new type of yoga platform whose founder describes it being “yoga for non-yogis”. Created by owner and businessman Jon Cummins out of his own love of the physical benefits of yoga but dislike of the traditional yogi vibes, Jon was inspired to create an online platform that would make yoga more approachable, affordable, accessible and fun. If you’re intimated by swinging by your local yoga studio because your downward dog needs a little work, the team at Bulldog pride themselves on making everyone feel welcome.
Bulldog Yoga: What to Expect
Unlike traditional yoga, the dynamic and varied online classes feature upbeat playlists that motivate you to get active in the comfort of your own home – perfect for this period of lockdown. With its website and group of apps, Bulldog Yoga offers everyone the ability to exercise when it works for them – any time, any place. The diversity of class times and types – from 10 to 60 minutes and from beginner to ‘kick my butt’– allows attendees to tailor their experience to their fitness level, and there are new classes added throughout the month to keep things fresh. Members can also access custom workout plans, taking a questionnaire to find out which plan best suits their mood and skill level.
The online classes are recorded live, and offer a virtual feeling of being in the studio, but with the reality of being in your own judgement-free home, office or hotel room. No Sanskrit, no chanting, no intimidation; Bulldog’s mission is for people to do what they can and not worry about “being good at yoga”.
Finally, for those who really want to go the whole way with their fitness over the next few weeks, Bulldog also offers customised work out plans. These 30-day plans are designed for those looking to follow a targeted workout routine, ane are tailored to your mood, skill level and fitness goals.
So if you fancy performing a warrior pose to synthy beats and pop-tastic bangers, give Bulldog Yoga a whirl.
