Wayward Brewing Co. Is Hosting Sydney's First Brewhouse Yoga Class
Do your sun salutations and follow it up with a schooner of craft beer.
Having a hard week? Need to get your chi sorted but also just really want a drink? Well, this weekend you can do both — at a brewery. That's right, a brewery. This Saturday morning, Yoga Bomb is taking over Wayward Brewery for Sydney's first brewhouse yoga class.
Dubbed Brewhouse Shala, the guided class — held this Saturday, April 2 at 10.30am — will be aimed at beginner to intermediate level. Twenty bucks gets you a 75-minute yoga class followed by a free craft beer tasting courtesy of the Wayward crew.
Yoga Bomb is committed to integrating yoga into everyday life, believing that anyone can benefit from yoga in their own way — even if that way includes a drink or two. It's an inclusive view on yoga, or as they're calling it, "yoga for the rest of us". They plan to expand this pilot into regular classes at the brewery.
Brewery yoga is already a popular trend across the US craft beer scene. The idea stems from the notion that yoga isn't about incense and austerity, but instead about finding a healthy balance in life. By 'balance', we don't mean practicing upward facing dog with a beer in one hand (although, kudos to you if you can manage that), but appreciating yoga and beer in quick succession. Considering craft beer is a big part of everyday life for many Sydneysiders, we can't imagine a better city to host the Australian trial.
After the class the brewery will open as usual with tasty food truck grub and flowing craft beer on offer all arvo. So bring your yoga mat, an open mind and be sure to pack your drinking hat too.
The pilot class of Brewhouse Shala will be held on Saturday, April 2 at 10.30am in Wayward Brewery, 1 Gehrig Lane, Annandale. The class will be capped at 20 people so be sure to rsvp here to secure a spot and pay at the bar on the day.
