The Black Student Union (BSU) hosted a night of Trap Yoga for students to enjoy a new way to exercise.

Trap Yoga is part two of the clubs Healthy Choices series to promote health, food security and food justice.

Trap Yoga is a new style of fitness that incorporates typical yoga poses with hip-hop music for a change to the traditional form.

“We got the idea last summer when members including myself went to a Los Angeles yoga class with a well known instructor,” fourth-year management and human resources student and president of BSU Jordyn Masters said.

Several student clubs such as Shades of Queens, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Sigma Rho Chapter, Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, and Pi Rho Chapter helped coordinate the two-hour yoga event held last Wednesday in the Bronco Student Center, Orion Suite.

BSU member, and dance and yoga instructor Erin Cambre was the instructor for the night.

She began the workout with some light warm ups, which then progressed to more challenging routines to ensure students received a great workout.

The purpose of the event was to inspire students to choose healthier lifestyles.

“This is my first time doing yoga and it was really fun, and it helped me with back problems I’ve had since I was six,” second-year English literature student Asia Harris said. “My favorite part of the event was the Trap music because it made it more exciting, since I always thought yoga was boring.”

Students seemed to enjoy the night working out to the fast paced music, and it was a nice change of pace compared to the typical tranquil yoga

“This event caught my attention because I love yoga, and I wanted to see how they incorporated trap music in the routines,” second-year marketing student Trinity Crosby said. “The exercises I enjoyed the most were the warrior poses because they were challenging and I felt the burn.” “I would definitely recommend this event to my friends.”

The event had a great turn out and is currently in high demand by students, therefore the BSU will begin planning another event in the spring 2018 quarter.

The BSU will host the last Healthy Choices series event from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday Feb. 27 in the BSC, England Evans.
