VOGA Combines Voguing And Yoga And Might Just Be The Next Big Thing (Photos)

If you're always the first to break focus during yoga class but aren't quite skilled enough for hip-hop, a fitness school called House of VOGA may be just the thing for you.

The program is set to Jane Fonda-style aerobics beats and features moves combining traditional yoga poses with voguing, a stylized dance born in the ballrooms of New York City and popularized by Madonna.

ABC reports VOGA's founder, 34-year-old Juliet Murrell, is a yoga instructor with 15 years of practice who has battled chronic fatigue in the past.

Instead of giving up her favorite past time, Murrell pumped it full of energy.

She told The Telegraph her class was inspired by a night at London gay cabaret club Madame Jojo's.

There, she witnessed a voguing battle between two regulars.

Morrell explained, "I thought it was the coolest thing ever, a crazy, underground, glamorous night without the focus being on drinking."

"VOGA is a homage to voguing."

"We're not voguing, we are doing yoga, but it's inspired by the two of them."

Feeling like getting fit in a new way?

Morrell will bring her VOGA classes stateside this upcoming June with a stop in New York City.

Give the gym a break, and try VOGA instead.
