Yoga meets Winter in ‘Snow-Ga’

Hot yoga isn’t for everyone, and now it doesn’t have to be. There's a new yoga trend in the works known as Snow-Ga, which is the same ol' traditional yoga just practiced in sub-zero temperatures.

Gemma Merna, who teaches the extra brisk practice at an indoor ski resort in the UK, is a firm advocate about practicing in chillier temperatures. In her opinion, Snow-Ga creates a deeper connection between the mind and body. She explains on the Chill Factore website: 

Practicing cold yoga means you have to focus twice as hard on your body’s movements and breathing, establishing a deeper mind-body connection, and ultimately leading to a feeling of total wellbeing

In Snow-ga's defense, colder temperatures do aid in blood constriction, which is often used in yoga as a means to tap into the body’s natural filtration system. By sending blood back towards your core, the body can remove harmful toxins which can help in reducing inflammation, chronic pain, and more. 

So, if you’re needing a new way to chill out, this could be for you—that is if you’ve got great circulation. Naaa-maaa-stee.

Guinness World Record Broken for Marathon in Ski Boots

Running a marathon is its own kind of misery, but if you wanted to make the experience significantly less enjoyable try wearing ski boots. You might think we’re being outlandish, but Dr. Paul Harnett just broke the Guinness World Record for Fastest Marathon Time in ski boots at the London Marathon. According to ProFeet, Harnett broke the record with a time of 5 hours and 30 minutes this Sunday. RELATED: Chris Whatford Drops the Long-Awaited Bladerunknown III So, yes this is

While the world is divided on many issues, there’s one thing that brings us all together: hot tubs. But do you know what’s better than a hot tub? Usually, I’d say nothing - but these snow architects from Mount Baker have expanded my thinking.  RELATED: Snowboarder Chased By Moose at Jackson Hole. Imagine spending a long day on the mountain, and instead of skiing straight to the bottom you detour to your own personal hot tub—in a snow cave. It’s even got a snow slide too.

While TGR may be known for our love of winter, there’s a special place in our heart for the island of Hawaii. We’ve been traveling to this tropical gem for nearly a decade, each time falling more in love with the island’s raw beauty and vibrant culture. "Kauai shares a similar kind of kindred spirit as Jackson Hole in its remoteness and its rawness," shares TGR co-founder Steve Jones.  RELATED: Andy Irons: Kissed By God During the filming of , we explored the area deeper—particularly from
