Pig yoga is the latest in bizarre workout trends
Would you try it?
Sometimes staying healthy and physically fit can feel impossible between busy schedules and lazy tendencies. While going for a run on a cold day sounds boring, 2018 has produced some exciting—and strange—ways to work out! Enter, pig yoga.
What is pig yoga, you ask? It's pretty much just a standard yoga class except there are adorable baby pigs running around the studio and jumping on your back. While you go from warrior two pose to inverted triangle, a trained support piglet hangs out on your yoga mat.
Yesterday I went to a yoga class with pigs, and it was one of the most wholesome and fun experiences of my life ???????? pic.twitter.com/6BOO569ewq— Melissa (@MelissaDominach) 19 November 2018
Tuck Barre & Yoga in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania teamed up with a local farm and animal sanctuary to create this unique exercise experience. Held once a month, about 20 yoga and animal lovers come together to stretch and squeal over the cute pigs.
While pig yoga may not be the most rigorous workout of your life, it will undoubtedly be adorable. Indeed, pet pigs are becoming more and more popular. From Miley Cyrus to Ariana Grande, it seems like dogs and cats are out and piglets are in!
