Some people like to relax with a mug of cold beer. Some people like to relax by meditating. Now, you can combine the two together with the ultimate creation. BierYoga.
Say Thanks To Germany
As you may have guessed by the word ‘bier’, BierYoga is from Germany. According to the BierYoga website, BierYoga is for beer lovers who like yoga, yogis who like beer and “for everybody else who is curious and over 16.”
Also, according to the website “BeerYoga is the marriage of two great loves – beer and yoga. Both are centuries-old therapies for body, mind and soul. The joy of drinking beer and the mindfulness of yoga complement each other, and make for an energising experience.”
Essentially, BeerYoga allows you to drink beer while practicing yoga there are a collection fo poses including beer balancing and ‘beer salutations’ – similar, we imagine, to the sun salutations.
While BeerYoga began in Germany, it has now begun conduction sessions in Australia, in The Village in Melbourne and The Sheaf in Sydney.
Of course, you could attempt to do some beer yoga yourself. If you’re accomplished at the Surya Namaskar, why not try balancing a beer bottle on your back as you do the downward dog? We’re sure a bottle of Bira or King’s will work perfectly.
