Class Act: Koga

Yoga is so beneficial that everyone is trying to find ways to build on this ancient practice. There are so many variations out there, from Yogilates to water yoga, and you can even sign yourself and your pooch up for Doga.

I'm interested in trying this fitness hybrid, but I haven't found a class near me. There are fitness DVDs available (set of two for $50), so you can try it out at home.

Tell me, have you ever tried Koga? If so, tell me what you thought below.
