The 5 Weirdest Workout Trends

Late to the doga fad? Haven't jumped on the barefoot bandwagon yet? Here's everything you need to know about the fitness world's wackiest new novelties.

Dogs in yoga class? Have dog owners (or yogis, depending how you look at it…) finally gone too far? During dog yoga (FYI: the cool kids call it “doga”), poodles and shih tzus can be seen doing their own yoga poses, or relaxing while draped over their owner’s neck. NYC-based yoga teacher Tiffany Cruikshank, whose dog Lulu (yes, named after Lululemon yoga clothes) can sometimes be seen on the sidelines at her classes, is a strong advocate of mixing it up. "Dogs have an instant way of lightening the mood of a yoga class,” she says. “What can be a potentially serious endeavor becomes a fun exploration when you add a dog to the mix." There’s no formal certification for dog yoga instructors, so you may be hard-pressed to find a class. Your best bet is to look for an outdoor yoga class and ask the teacher if there’s room for your best friend.
