Question of the Month
In different parts of the world, certain fitness trends are more popular than others. In your country, have mind-body fusion classes—for example, those that blend Pilates with boxing or drumming—grown in popularity? Or do your participants prefer “pure” mind-body programs, like classical yoga? Please share information about whether or not mind-body fusion classes are popular in your country, and if so, what types of programs are popular and why. Share your responses with editor Sandy Todd Webster, email@example.com.
