What in the world is snowga?

Yep, it's yoga in the snow, and while it's clearly not for everyone, it's a unique way to fight the tendency to veg in cold weather. 

Many studies have shown that people move more in the warmer months and become more sedentary in the winter. Science says your body and mood will benefit from outdoor fresh air and some exercise. I’d never heard of this before, but I ran into this new phenomenon - snowga.

This sounds like fun, but a little advice, you don't want to do this barefoot. Skip the yoga pants and wear something that keeps you warm, depending on where you live and what the weather is outside. I have no issue embarrassing myself and wearing a hat, gloves and a scarf when it’s cold outside and I suggest you do the same. 

Snowga is a time to test your limits, but maybe make sure to include some indoor stretching afterward. And some hot chocolate.
