LONDON, ENGLAND: The latest exercise fad, Disco Yoga, originates in America at Gold's Fitness Center on Lafayette Street, where the "Thursday Night Fever" Disco Yoga class is packed with New Yorkers in pursuit of the perfect body. For a high-energy 60 minutes, instructor Trixie takes the class on a "disco trip with dynamic flowing yoga poses," using mainly soul and funk music. You might expect yoga purists to react with horror, but they can see the benefits of a combined discipline. "As long as the teacher is experienced in yoga practice," says Simon Low, of London's Triyoga yoga centre. "with beginners understanding the basic principles of yoga before trying Disco Yoga, to prevent long term damage."
