Can Yoga Help Release Anger? The Answer: Rage Yoga

First-time attendees to a Yoga Rage session may think they have mistaken the room. Instead of that peaceful and calm atmosphere so characteristic of Yoga, in a Rage session, you will find heavy metal music, insults, shouts, and many colorful mats.

No, it is not a drama lesson! It is a Rage Yoga class. This new type of yoga was invented by a Canadian woman and in this yoga, the only thing that remains of the "yogi philosophy" are the postures and poses.

We have known aerial yoga, tantric or Bikram yoga, and even kilt yoga, but this new version breaks many of its precepts.
