You can now do yoga in a heated bouncy castle


From breweries to salt chambers to cat cafes, we’ve all learned over the past year that no location is too weird to practice yoga.

Yet the latest yoga trend might just be the craziest yet. A UK-based company called HotPod Yoga is holding pop-up heated classes inside a large inflatable pod (that reminds us so much of a bouncy castle), the London Evening Standard reports.

The pod’s set to 37 degrees Celsius, which is over 98 degrees Fahrenheit (for comparison, Bikram is usually about 104). Classes are vinyasa flow, and open to yogis of all levels. And thanks to the enclosed pod, it’s truly a way to isolate yourself from the world and just focus on your practice.

Apparently the 45-minute classes are so popular there’s a waitlist. Plus, they’re free, so who wouldn’t want to try their hand at posing in a heated pod for that price?

HotPod Yoga isn’t in the U.S. yet, but we won’t be surprised if this is a trend that spreads fast. And you bet we’ll be the first in line the second they start popping up in stateside. —Amy Marturana
