Beer yoga is here. After being enjoyed by Berlin yoga enthusiasts, it's now found its way to Australia- a beer-loving nation.
An article in mashable.com reports that Germany's BierYoga' bills itself as the "marriage of two great loves-beer and yoga. Both are centuries-old therapies for mind, body and soul," according to its website.
If one is writing this off as a lighthearted drinking culture,it would be interesting to note that the BierYoga company takes itself quite seriously. According to the brand's founder, Jhula, "BeerYoga is fun but it's no joke."
After weekly sessions across Berlin, BierYoga has launched an Australian tour, announcing a string of dates for their beer-focused yoga classes in Melbourne and Sydney. Each hour-long session will see followers going through select classic asanas while knocking back their favourite brand of ale.
