The newest fitness craze – “Bridge yoga” and “Subway yoga”

Yoga is a set of psychical, mental and spiritual exercises and practices that transform your body and mind.  So when people say “yoga” I think of a calm, peaceful place where we meditate and relax. However, the hottest trend is completely different from the way I think.

Yoga on subway 

instragram-yoga-4 (1)The “Big Apple” yoga enthusiasts started to practice yoga all over New York, surprisingly not in gyms or parks but on subway!  You have probably experienced rush mornings, chaos and masses moving to work or school. They don’t care about dirty floor, people staring at them, they just twist, bend, stretch. Some of them with yoga mats lay down to do sun salutation. some just simply practice on seats or around poles.
