A New Kind of Yoga Includes Capoeira for a Killer Workout

New York City is well known as a trendsetting metropolis for fashion and food. But the city’s also a big influence on fitness. That’s thanks to a pool of talented NYC teachers who create new, smart workouts that make breaking a sweat an interesting undertaking, and not just a task. Take Carlos Rodriguez, a Big Apple-based yoga teacher, who recently blended modern dance, yoga, and Capoeira, a Brazilian martial arts form, to create a new yoga style called Caponyasa. In this challenging new class you’ll use your core, balance, and all four sides of your yoga mat – all while moving at a pace that rivals a sprinter's. I recently took Rodriguez’s killer class for WellandGoodNYC.com, a top NYC wellness site (that I happen to head up) and I asked him how he created the concept. I neglected to inquire when we will see it featured at a spa retreat, but I have a feeling it won’t be long.
