Yet despite their popularity, there are some tricky parts in the vinyasa (a sequential series of yoga poses) that can be problematic for even experienced yogis.

Using a combination of cha-cha, mambo and salsa dance moves, in an hour-long combination of dance and aerobics, Zumba promises to work every muscle in your body and turn exercise into a party.
