A big reason why we’re not a fan of exercise is because it’s incredibly difficult to hold a margarita while running on the treadmill. Like, WTF? What am I running for if I can’t reward myself halfway through my mile run with a marg?
Finally someone in Berlin has heard out complaints. Bier Yoga, or Beer Yoga for those who didn’t catch the translation, was started by yoga teachers Emily and Jhula, who were inspired to start up spiritual boozing classes after experiencing something similar at Burning Man.
“BeerYoga is the marriage of two great loves – beer and yoga,” their website explains. “Both are centuries-old therapies for body, mind and soul. The joy of drinking beer and the mindfulness of yoga compliment each other, and make for an energizing experience.”
For just $10, alcohol-loving yogis can take an hour-long session while double fisting. But make no mistake — this isn’t a joke, it’s still an exercise class.
“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,” they say. We are loving every bit of this. While the phenomenon hasn’t hit the states yet (although, it has hit my apartment, wink, wink), it’s already started popping up in Sydney. Fingers crossed it comes here ASAP, or at least someone is inspired enough to start their own. Let’s start a movement, people!!
