Combining Beers & Burritos is one thing, but beer and yoga?
It's happening thanks to a German group known as BierYoga.
“BeerYoga is the marriage of two great loves — beer and yoga,” reads a description on BierYoga's website. “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.”
Would you like an ale with that downward dog? How about a lager with that mountain pose?
“BeerYoga is fun but it’s no joke," the description continues, "we take the philosophies of yoga and pair it with the pleasure of beer-drinking to reach your highest level of consciousness.”
Apparently, the origins of beer yoga can be traced back to Oregon, also known for its goat yoga.
But even BierYoga wasn't the first group to promote enlightenment through yoga under the influence of alcohol. The instructor told Ex Berliner they first saw it done at (American culture festival/desert apocalypse party shitshow) Burning Man.
What do you think of this idea? What beers would go best with your enlightenment?
