Rage Yoga is about to be your new favorite workout
Have you ever tried yoga and it just didn’t do much for you? Slowly raises hand. For some people, yoga is the key to their inner peace and happiness. They find clarity in staying still and quiet, holding poses and releasing all of their tension with each movement. But if you’re like me and need something a little, um, more extreme to get all the negativity out, maybe Rage Yoga will become your new thing.
According to CBS DFW 21 News, Rage Yoga comes to us courtesy of Ashley Duzich of Ashley Duzich Wellness in Houston, Texas. “Some people need to release and let go,” she tells them. And she gives them the proper place to do so.
Duzich describes Rage Yoga as “a practice that involves breathing, stretching, mudras, yoga postures and a lot of bad humor.”
“Yoga itself actually means union… so union with yourself,” she explains. “And that’s not always just super-calm, breathing, practicing quiet time, like a lot of yoga places are.”
OK, I’m very with her here, because being in union with myself almost always results in F bombs being dropped — and the popularity of her classes suggests I’m far from alone.
So let’s get down to the nitty gritty of what Rage Yoga looks like. Duzich describes it as a true release for all that’s bothering you. “We are all angry about something and we all have been holding onto an ‘F’-bomb for a little bit too long,” she says. “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.”
