Beer Yoga is the weird exercise trend we could all get into

We knew drinking beer is relaxing, but we never realised it could take you to a higher state of consciousness too!

Beer Yoga is, as the name obviously implies, yoga that’s done with beer. It first originated in places like Berlin and Burning Man, and is now becoming the biggest thing in a country where alcohol is definitely a thing: Australia.

According to BierYoga founder Jhula, it’s a marriage between two art forms, both of which are great for one’s well-being.

“BeerYoga is fun but it’s no joke,” said Jhula. “We take the philosophies of yoga and pair it with the pleasure of beer-drinking to reach your highest level of consciousness.”

This weekend, there will be two Beer Yoga sessions to be held in Sydney. The events promise to teach students how to chug down beer while doing classic yoga poses. “No yoga experience necessary, just an open mind and a love for beer.”
