Well, let's just say that Selorm and Maya were admittedly not exactly yogis themselves, but were totally willing to give it their all.

They wanted to find out why so many people are obsessed with the practice by trying something outside the box.

So they decided to try three types of extreme yoga, starting with aerial yoga. You know? The type Pink likes to do, nbd.

They went straight to Khalia Frazier, an air aerial fitness instructor, who taught the ladies the ropes (pun totally intended).

They had to learn how to use their core to be able to hang upside down most of the time, and it's way tougher than it looks.

They had to hang by their legs, and wrap themselves into some sort of cocoon by using their abs to lift themselves. Nice job!

After taking on the aerial yoga challenge, Selorm and Maya headed to Earth's Power Yoga for Yogascape with Steven Earth Metz.

It was super hot, and (side note) Maya hates to sweat. Doh!

Selorm rocked it and, although Maya struggled to keep her balance in the beginning, she eventually felt calm and less stressed.

Lastly, the ladies hit up H2yOga with founder Sue Gisser for some aqua yoga, ya'll!

Water yoga combines water weights with traditional yoga poses to create a virtually gravity-free workout.

They really had to use their core to keep themselves from falling over. It was a struggle.

"How are we gonna do, like, downward dog in the water?"

Sue used a lot of life lessons during their session, some of which made Maya get emotional.

"My body and the water vibed so well together." This type of yoga ended up being Maya's favorite.

Selorm's favorite, on the other hand, proved to be the hot yoga at the Yogascape.

Maya loved getting to see Selorm conquer that pose in the studio. Nice!

They hung in the air, sweated it out, and swam while striking poses.
