Now THIS is a yoga class we want to roll out our mats in! It's called TIPSY YOGA. A yoga instructor in New York City is teaching a basic vinyasa class with an open wine bar, and it sure sounds like a lot of fun.
Eli Walker teaches tipsy yoga at Grey Lady in lower Manhattan and for $30, students get all the wine they can knock back during the hour-long class. Why mix yoga and alcohol? I mean, it’s not that easy to balance before catching a buzz!
This class, it turns out, is perfect for those who are a little intimidated by the whole yoga thing. “For those of you who are hesitant to try yoga for fear of ‘looking silly’, this class is for you,” the official Drunk Yoga Facebook page explains. “Come, drink wine, try yoga with other beginners, and by all means … look silly!”
So the liquid courage helps people relax and forget what they might look like while in those poses. And boozy yoga isn’t anything new, there are several other places in New York City to get your buzz on while you stretch. In Germany, they have a traveling yoga and beer class called, what else? 'Bieryoga', of course. Maybe a little judgment-impairing alcohol is just what’s been missing from yoga class, so cheers and namaste to that.
