Voga, a combination of 80s dance moves and yoga, is coming to the US this spring.

Strike a pose, there's nothing to it.

Voga.

It's like Madonna's "Vogue" dance moves combined with yoga. Hot in the U.K. and making it's U.S. debut this spring, Voga might be the answer for yogis looking to spice up their practice. Each class has its own D.J. and is set to 80s dance music.

Leg warmers, scrunchies and unitards optional, but encouraged.

The class description offers the "synchronized movement of Yoga with the expressive moves of a dance class, fusing power and strength with attitude and flamboyance, where slick alignment is key," the class description reads.

“Voga offers all the health benefits of yoga and more, thanks to a unique series of poses and counter-postures that work the whole body, right down to the hands and feet,” said Juliet Murrell, the woman who created the practice. She said aside from physical benefits, it also inspires confidence. Murrell, a certified yoga instructor, created Voga as a way to regain her energy while suffering from chronic fatigue.
