Reese Witherspoon Loves YogaHop

Reese Witherspoon is one of those celebs who loves to work out (and it shows!) When she's not jogging or working outside the gym, according to the latest issue of Shape magazine, she takes YogaHop classes. These 90-minute workouts incorporate yoga poses with booming hip-hop, rock, and pop music. The class feels more like a dance party than an exercise routine, yet it's still as spiritually uplifting as traditional yoga classes. For the first 60 minutes, students flow from pose to pose to increase their heart rates, holding postures for a few breaths each. Then the last part of the class focuses on stretching for longer periods of time to increase flexibility. The reason this class helps you tone up is because you're encouraged to do sets of push-ups between poses.

If you're looking for a way to kick it up a notch on your mat, classes are offered at the YogaHop studio in Santa Monica, CA for $17 a pop.

I am a yoga teacher in NYC and I ALWAYS have uplifting music in my classes! It keeps students motivated and smiling, even when I'm telling them to hold forearm plank for 10 breaths. Some of my recent mixes have Kings of Leon "Sex on Fire" and "Use Somebody", Kanye's "Street Lights" and "Love Lockdown", Lily Allen's "Fear" and "Smile" and Kate Nash "Pumpkin Soup". I'm always looking for fun music to keep my students happy, and use it for a running mix for myself!
