Beer Yoga Is Australia's Next Big Unnecessary but Great Exercise Trend
Oh, alright then.
Beer and yoga. An unlikely combination, but one that's gone gangbusters across the world. And after a few trials of the concept — including a class at Sydney's Wayward Brewing — Australia looks set to see the trend come out in full force with the launch of BierYoga.
Having held weekly sessions across Berlin over the past 12 months, 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 punters getting bendy while knocking back brews, with beer-drinking incorporated into each classic yoga pose. Think sun salutations and reverse warriors, interspersed with sips of your favourite ale. BierYoga's team of qualified yoga instructors (and, we're sure, seasoned beer drinkers) will get you loose, limber, and having fun — whether you're a total yoga novice, or a well-practiced pro.
Each session's priced at a budget-friendly $10 — just bring a towel or yoga mat and you're good to go. You'll need to buy a beer at the bar separately. Classes are happening throughout January and February at the locations below. And while it's just in Melbourne and Sydney for now, we're betting this bizarre beery combo will catch on in other cities real soon.
January 26, 12pm (Australia Day Special) — Speakeasy Kitchen Bar, South Yarra
February 8, 6pm — The Village, St Kilda Road
February 15, 6pm — The Village, St Kilda Road
February 22, 6pm — The Village, St Kilda Road
