Drunk yoga classes exist

i have a t-shirt i wear that says “whiskey & yoga” and people always laugh at it. i tell people it’s either (1) my health care plan; or (2) that they both take practice and they both hurt when you do them incorrectly. i would never actually drink while doing yoga – firstly, it’s against the whole point of yoga, and secondly, it just increases the chance of injury. silly westerners, ruining everything again!

Is this a region of the 'burbs from which no trend can escape, or does it emit a Hawking radiation of bougions that slowly gentrifies the surrounding area?

Nah. I suffer of acid reflux and bending over in my yoga practice with liquid or food in my stomach makes my esophagus burn. I do not drink water even during hot yoga. My rule is no liquids 2 hours before practice.
But I would be down for the after party!

Ugh. This is some cultural appropriation nonsense.

Just get drunk and play twister instead. It’s a great core workout, you’ll stretch every muscle you have, and you’ll laugh when you fall over and think you look super cute doing it. Exact same thing. And you can still wear your full lululemon gear if you want to.

I’ve got a big problem with alcohol finding it’s way into any sort of fitness area. I don’t get why the same GOOP-style “wellness” folks who won’t even microwave their food in a plastic bowl due to fear of cancer will drink wine by the bottle, nevermind that alcohol is one of the biggest carcinogens on the planet.

Oh wait, that’s not yoga. :roll_eyes: :rofl:

Seriously though, while a little alcohol might loosen my muscles (and my inhibitions) somewhat, enough of it would impair coordination, and that makes mistakes and injury much more likely. (Especially as I’ve hit the age where pulling a muscle is too easy.) This does not sound like a good idea.

I’m sure that drunk yoga turns into drunk laughter yoga, regardless of intention

I think this is more for the sort of hipsters who want to think they’re being trendy and healthy and/or spiritual, but also just want an excuse to go out and get drunk (because doing that regularly without an excuse will eventually kind of look like you have an alcohol problem).

The whole yoga thing is clearly just a novelty spin/icebreaker on what is actually an event where you go mainly to socialize and drink. (And the yoga itself is said to be very light, beginner stuff.) The business owners probably thought “Well, people like to drink, and we want them to drink in our establishments/during our services instead of the bar on the corner. How can we get them to do that?” “Last week I went to my yoga practice drunk lol” “Amazing idea!”

(I mean, they offer bachelorette parties. Not “yoga practices” but “parties”. Something tells me the actual yoga is not really the focus of those events.)

The goats are mostly for Instagram and cheese.

I have a young colleague who would do spin competitions (stationary bicycle) at the local brew house. Much beer was consumed. I guess if your’e young and fit enough, the possibilities are endless.

As I am neither, it just sounds like an invitation for misery and limited mobility for weeks or months.
