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.
