This ‘zero Gravity Workout’ Doesn’t Even Look Real (watch)

The class is equipped with a TV screen to display song lyrics and, luckily for those with stage fright, there are no solo performances. You can expect to sing along with the whole class to songs from Adele, Elton John and Journey.The focus of the class is joy, not the perfecting of poses. “It’s not about alignment, it’s about connecting to your joy,” Pasiloff said in an ABC News interview. Though not about the yoga, per se, it’s still about the workout: “It’s longer exhales, it’s sweating, dancing,” she insists.
