– While it may seem that every type of yoga has been explored, two beer-guzzling yoga teachers have pioneered a groundbreaking – and distinctly bizarre – new trend.
Emily and Jhula are the masterminds behind ‘beer yoga’, a German craze that allows fitness fanatics to carry out traditional yoga poses while taking sips of booze.
Astounding photos show nimble yogis in Bangkok, Thailand, deftly balancing a beer bottle on their heads, clutching it as they hold the plank position and holding it high above them during a sun salutation.
Perhaps predicting the temptation to overindulge, enthusiasts are advised to drink just one or two bottles during the one-hour session.
The movement, called ‘Bieryoga’, started in Berlin in 2015 and has spread to cities like Melbourne and Sydney.
Despite gushing that they are ‘passionate about beer’, Emily and Jhula insisted the craze was not all fun and games.
‘Beer Yoga is fun but it’s no joke – we take the philosophies of yoga and pair it with the pleasure of beer-drinking to reach your highest level of consciousness,’ the Bieryoga official site reads. –
