Namaahhhhhhhhhhste. 

Guys, it’s 2017 and we are happy to announce that Beer Yoga is finally here.

Berlin-based Beer Yogi and founder of Germany’s “BierYoga” has turned the wacky idea into a blooming business venture, after first observing the practice at America’s Burning Man.

“BierYoga” (translates to ‘BeerYoga’) is the “marriage of two great loves – beer and yoga. Both are centuries-old therapies for mind, body and soul”, according to the official website. “We take the philosophies of yoga and pair it with the pleasure of beer-drinking to reach your highest level of consciousness.”

Right. So it’s not JUST about drinking beer in between surya namaskaar and the downward dog.

From “Beer Salutations” to balancing beer bottles on your head, the practice involves many familiar and many creative yoga poses. Just be mindful not to take too many sips – a smashed bottle in a room full of barefoot beer yogis might ruin the buzz. 

The buzz is definitely booming for the trend though, as the big slurps and the bold stretches have even made their way from Berlin to Sydney and Melbourne this January. You don’t have to be a yoga whizz to attend, just bring “an open mind and a love of beer.” 

And be mindful not to let out too many… burps.

For the rest of us, I guess we’ll just have to make do with informal beer yoga at home and at the pub for now…
