Justin Bieber Yoga Is A Thing That Exists, & We Have Some Biebs-Themed Pose Ideas
When I read about Justin Bieber’s recent rowdy behavior, about 45 things come to mind before a peaceful, centered yoga class. Alas, I just don’t have the creative vision. Toronto resident Rosanne McCollum pioneered yogaBiebs, a yoga class set to Bieber tunes. YEP. I love it already. McCollum, a certified yoga instructor and proud Belieber, says yoga class music doesn’t have to be new age and mellow, so she’s merged two of her interests: the ancient practice of yoga and the contemporary sounds of Justin Bieber. Get me to Canada, STAT. I need to Downward Dog to "Beauty and the Beat."
McCollum says Bieber's hit “Baby” didn’t make its way onto the yogaBiebs playlist, but she did include a lot of songs from his 2013 album Journals. Ah, so she probably doesn’t ask students to chant “Baby, baby, baby, OM” on an exhale, right? Missed opportunity, I say!
Inspired by McCollum and yogaBiebs, I've cooked up a few Bieber-themed yoga poses. I tried 'em out. I'm no yoga teacher, but I think these moves could really catch on!
The class mantra: “Never say never.”
