‘Beer Yoga’ Is A Thing And It Looks Amazing
Hold up… your life is about to change and it’s in the form of a new fitness regime that has been blessed upon us called Beer Yoga.
This is just the good news we wanted to hear on a gloomy January day and it looks a million times more appealing than the gym.
This crazy new class combines tough yoga positions, with the drinking of beer, deeming it quite possibly the best workout solution ever to have been invented, Mashable reports.
It originally started out in Berlin but after it was met with such a popular response, it has now won over fitness (and beer) fans down under in Australia.
The creative team behind the class describes it accurately as the ‘marriage of two great loves—beer and yoga. Both are centuries-old therapies for mind, body and soul’.
Sounds fair, but apparently they take it very seriously. It’s not a place you can just rock up and get pissed…
Founder and ‘yogi’ Jhula explains:
BeerYoga is fun but it’s no joke.
We take the philosophies of yoga and pair it with the pleasure of beer-drinking to reach your highest level of consciousness.
The instructor is not the only one to advocate drinking and working out, as apparently she first saw it done at Burning Man festival in America, before jumping on the bandwagon.
As you might expect when combining yoga moves with beer, the bottles are very much part of the action, with poses such as ‘beer salutations’, including balancing bottles on your head.
And what’s even better is you don’t need to be a bendy yoga pro to get in on the fun, as the classes stipulate that no experience is necessary.
Instead they invite you to come with an ‘open mind and a love of beer’.
This sounds like a dream come true. Where do we sign up?
