As country is to line-dancing, rap is to ... yoga? Hip-hop guru Russell Simmons has entered the fitness world with the release of a yoga video set to rap beats.
"Russell Simmons Presents Yoga Live" is an otherwise traditional instructional video that teaches the basics of yoga postures and breathing.
"For me, this is a very serious venture," Simmons recently told The Associated Press. "If I could move the meter and take yoga and spread it ... then everyone in the world would do it."
