It looks like Nick and Drew Lachey have finally found their Zen.

As part of Bud Light’s #UpForWhatever campaign, the brothers — who own Lachey’s Bar in Cincinnati — led a hot yoga class at Bikram Yoga NYC on Tuesday.

Drew, 38, tells PEOPLE he’s the pro of the family. He’s done Bikram yoga “a couple of times, but regular yoga more.” Nick, on the other hand? Not so much.

“I’ve been doing Bikram yoga for about two hours,” Nick, 41, says. “Today was literally my first time doing yoga of any kind.”

But he seemed to be getting the hang of it just fine — although he clearly enjoyed renaming the poses. “Reaching-for-the-last-Bud-Light-in-the-back-of-the fridge pose” was one of our faves. (See the exclusive video below!)

Hot Yoga With Nick and Drew Lachey

According to Drew, he decided to try yoga after being diagnosed with a chronic back problem in 2008. His doctor wanted him to “address” it by limiting his time in the weight room, which led him to the yoga studio.

“Yoga makes me sweat,” he says. “Your body feels better, especially your hips, lower back and hamstrings. It changes how you feel.”

Even though it was his first class, Nick said he would do it again “for sure.”

“I can definitely see why people gravitate to it,” he says. “It’s a little spiritual in its own way and you definitely get a good stretch. It serves a lot of needs.”

Nick stays fit by lifting weights, doing the elliptical and occasionally running on the treadmill. Both guys say they feel more pressure in their joints as they age. Oddly, they love to tread water.

“There is something fundamentally weird about sweating in the pool,” Drew says jokingly.

“It’s weird isn’t it?” says Nick. “You do sweat in the pool. I’ll throw a game on [TV] and just tread water in the pool and watch — and all of a sudden you feel sweat coming down.”

Normally, a hot yoga class levels out around 105 degrees, but this session was set for 98 degrees to play on the brothers’ former boy band name. Nick even had some advice for Bikram newcomers: “Breathe,” he says. “A few times, I forgot to breathe and I don’t advise that. It’s good to breathe.”

“Yeah, you’ve got to breathe and take your time,” adds Drew. “You’ve got to figure out what your body can do and how it’s going to react the next day. So ease yourself into it.”

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.
