If headspins and windmills were, like, totally your thing in the 1980s, you’ll love Breakti, a combo of yoga and breakdancing.

The practice playfully merges funky street dance moves (including arm balances called "freezes") with yoga postures in an accessible-to-all way. "It's a mindful practice that uses the element of fun to help people address fear and break out of their shells to see possibility," says founder Anya Porter, a yoga instructor. Haven't heard of Breakti? New York City remains the movements unofficial hub--and the site of Porter's third teacher training next year--but Porter's students are also fanning out across the country to lead workshops and classes that integrate Breakti.
