Ladies, do you love wine? Are you bad at yoga? Now you can get drunk with wine yoga, and yes it’s a thing!
CAN’T DECIDE BETWEEN AFTER-WORK DRINKS AND THE GYM? NOW YOU DON’T HAVE TO!
A Drunk Yoga class consists of a brief happy hour, followed by a fun and beginner-friendly 45-minute vinyasa sequence.
The experience is laughter-filled and uplifting, meant to bring together community with the understanding that happiness is health.
Eli Walker grew up in rural Wisconsin and set flight for Manhattan when she received a scholarship to attend New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. She said Often, non-yogis tell me, “I should do yoga, but I’m afraid I’ll look silly,” or, “I’d like to do yoga, but I’m not flexible enough.” In response to this paralyzing perfectionist syndrome running rampant in Manhattan, I created the idea of teaching a yoga class at a bar with wine in-hand to give people who would like to try yoga—but who would otherwise be too intimidated to go to a class at a yoga studio—the opportunity to let go of their inhibitions and give it a shot, sans the fear factor of having to achieve perfection. I ironically coined this called, “Drunk Yoga.” In this class, they can strive for the “ideal” and feel okay about not achieving it, because I have created a container that feels more like a party, rather than a class, in which they can de-stress through movement and good wine together.
