Honestly, super jealous of betches analyzing abroad in Australia right now, because Beer Yoga is becoming a thing in the land down under and it sounds fucking fantastic.
Beer Yoga is literally exactly what the name implies: Yogis flock to practice the downward-facing puppy together with a cold brew in hand. The magical idea started when two beer-loving hipsters in Berlin founded the company BierYogaalso known as BeerYogaafter insuring festivalgoers partake at Burning Man( lol classic ). And the founders have since taken “the marriage of two great lovesbeer and yoga” to Oz, where you can find the fun in bars, parks, celebrations and wherever your alcoholic heart can imagine.
And while the Beer Yoga website boasts that the “joy of drinking brew and the mindfulness of yoga compliment each other, and make for an energizing experience, ” the real beauty of this idea is the ability to get slightly illuminated while pretending to be spiritual and shit. The class teach the participants “beer salutations” and how to balance brew on one’s head, which is literally the most perfect form of exercising ever.
Beer Yoga is a self-proclaimed art for anyone who likes brew, anyone who likes yoga, and basically anyone who’s old enough to drinking legally. But don’t be fooledBeer Yoga is no joke, as it takes “the doctrines of yoga and pair[ s] it with the pleasure of beer-drinking to reach your highest level of consciousness.” Right.
No word yet if this idyllic exercising will make its way to the United States, but I’m gonna go ahead and start my brew salutations now just in case.
