Are you one of those people who would love to practice yoga, but just can’t manage to find the time? Now there is a site catering especially to people like you. It’s called Dirty Yoga, and it’s for people who make shit happen, but can’t seem to make it to the studio on time for class. The idea is that the people who would benefit the most from yoga’s de-stressing benefits are the ones who aren’t able to fit it into their busy schedules. Now all you need is a mat and a laptop to take a class. Two Brooklyn-based yogis, Susi Rajah and Jess Gronholm created a virtual studio where you can take 20-45 minute courses. There’s also “quickie” 5-8 minutes from when your day is really packed. The goal is to give yoga with flexibility, categorized by length and intensity that let you pick the workout best matching what you’re looking for without chanting, meditating, or exposing those see-through Lululemon pants to a whole room of strangers.
It’s yoga that’s not too expensive, and geared toward exercise for people who want the lean body benefits without the spiritual side. You can try it out for a week for only $10, or hit the mat for a month for $20. Then after you’ve decided if you like it, prices range from $15-$25 depending on how advanced you are. And if it’s not for you? It’s less money down the drain than a round of cocktails. Why not check it out?
