This New Fitness Trend Is Nicknamed "Alien Yoga And it Will Scare You

There's a new type of yoga around and it's called Nauli, but it's apparently gotten the nickname "Alien Yoga," according to the Independent. The yoga move is supposed to help massage internal organs. But it looks a bit scary. To do the move, you  first exhale, pushing your stomach out. While holding your breath, you then pull your abs up toward the chest. Then you roll the abs from side to side.

"This Nauli is the crown of Hatha practices," says a translation of The Hatha Yoga Pradipika. "It kindles a weak gastric fire, restores the digestion, always brings happiness, and dries up all defects and diseases." Yoga Journal recommends learning the move from an experienced teacher, to avoid injures and to avoid scaring people for nothing!

It supposed to be a move to help your organs and prevent future injuries, but it is a bit scary and creepy. The move involves weird movements and scary results, however people who are into Yoga seem to love it. Let's just stay out of Yoga class for a while!
