It is no hidden secret that drinking beer will make you fat. But, what if, someone was to tell you that drinking beer can make you fit?
But, in a fast spreading trend you can combine both through Beer yoga.
Started in the US, this new form of Yoga saw a rejuvenation in Berlin with the help of two ‘yogis’ named Emily Casey and her friend Jhula.
So, what is it? Jhula says:
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.
And how did it start? She answers:
It started off as a bit of fun between friends and we went to a friend’s bar in Berlin to do a session and then the media got hold of the idea. 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 trend has now left the society of Berlin and has made quite a debut in Australia.
In one such special session of beer meets asana in Sydney, students learnt yoga poses involving “beer salutations” and balancing beer bottles on one’s head.
No matter its place of origin, it’s definitely now a thing, and a thing being marketed unironically Down Under.
