Beer Yoga is a Real Thing!
Good news! If you've been looking for some inspiration to exercise, well you can finally put those yoga pants to good use.
There's a new craze that began in Germany and has quickly spread to Australia -- it's called Beer Yoga! Or Bieryoga, as it's called in Germany. If you're in to yoga and have a love of beer, this is the perfect activity for you.
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 compliment each other, and make for an energizing experience."-bieryoga.de
This is no joke either, as they still very much focus on the philosophies of yoga. But the belief according to beiryoga.de, is that by adding in the joy of drinking beer, you will be at your "highest level of consciousness". That is.. unless you have too many. I can't imagine that drinking beer and then trying balance yourself always goes over well.
Regardless, this does look pretty sweet!
If you're still in disbelief that something so awesome could be a real thing. Just check out Bieryoga's Facebook page. The unfortunate part about all of this is that as far as we know, this magical activity is not yet in the U.S...well at least not legitimately. What you do in your own time is your own business.
If yoga isn't really your thing, but you DO enjoy having some brews, check out the Cedar Rapids Beer Summit. On Saturday, March 11, there will be unlimited sampling of over 100 craft beers and ciders from 6- 9 p.m. at the Doubletree Convention Complex in downtown Cedar Rapids! Not to mention, there will be live music from Big Mojo Band, prizes, free games like beer pong, a fun Hawkeye photo booth AND MORE!
