Yoga is definitely one of the most popular ways to stay healthy and find that inner spiritual connection you lack in the hustle and bustle of everyday life. But, if you are looking for something a little more social that you can do but still reap the benefits the new fad of beer yoga might be right up your alley.
And don’t be confused beer yoga is exactly what it sounds like. The exercise combines the body stretching agility of yoga and the mouth watering pleasures of your favorite alcoholic beverage. Germany’s Bier Yoga co-founder, Jhula, stated:
“Basically, I played around with it in my room with a Radler [half beer, half lemonade or soda]. I took standard vinyasa sequences, which most people have done a bunch of times, and tried to figure out everywhere I could work beer in there.”
The events are now being scheduled all across Australia, and by the looks of it, are pretty popular. The event is described by Broadstreet Sydney as:
“It’s an hour-long session of yoga with a twist – you drink a bottle or two of beer at the same time. The beer drinking is incorporated into the yoga poses, in what is sure to be one of the most interesting sessions of yoga you’ve had for a while.”
Let’s hope this new exciting trend continues to spread across the United States.
