'Drunk yoga' combines many wines with exercise

Struggle with exercise? A bit of red or white wine may help you!

A yoga instructor in New York has come up with a 'drunk yoga' class.

It’s exactly what it sounds like - complete with an open bar with unlimited wine, for $30, students get an hour-long yoga class, and as much alcohol as one can stomach while attempting to hold a crow pose.

“I’ve had a lot of people, whether in classes, or friends, or people I met at parties say something like, ‘I’d love to try yoga but I can’t because I’m not flexible, or too afraid I’d look stupid,” said teacher Eli Walker to the New York Post.

“I thought it would be fun to turn yoga into more of a party. If I made it into a game it would make people more comfortable.”

Having a sip of some chardonnay has helped quite a few of the students have more confidence in class, and also a bit more flexibility.

“One of my students said he can’t touch his toes on a day-to-day basis, but when he’s doing drunk yoga, he can touch his toes,” Eli said. “It makes him feel empowered to do something he thinks he can’t with his body.”

It's not the first time someone has combined drinks and downward dog poses, with beer yoga having made headlines earlier this year in New Zealand.
