Drink beer while you downward dog
There have been some strange yoga trends. I'm talking Doga (sharing your yoga mat with your dog), Karaoke Yoga (stretching those vocal cords as well as your other muscles), (SUP Yoga (yoga on a paddleboard) and Goat Yoga (yoga while kid goats jump around and on you). But, Beer Yoga may be the strangest yet.
Hailed as the perfect combination of beer and yoga, Beer Yoga is being brought to Australia by Bieryoga, a Berlin-based company that has made the concept extremely popular in Berlin.
While no doubt there will be a good number of laughs and they are not against this, Bieryoga don't view the mix of beer and yoga as a joke, but as an energising experience achieved by pairing the philosophies of yoga with the pleasure of beer drinking to reach your highest level of consciousness.
The yoga sessions are run by certified yoga teachers and passionate beer drinkers, Emily and Jhula, who take regular yoga poses and incorporate balancing and drinking from beer bottles into each pose.
