'The Marriage Of Two Great Loves' - Beer And Yoga
According to Men's Health, Beer Yoga or BierYoga was founded in Germany, and it means "marriage of two great loves: beer and yoga." Fitness experts call it a unique and healthy fitness practice which allows you to exercise and lose extra flab at the same time.
Each Beer Yoga class incorporates drinking beer into yoga poses, like balancing the bottle on your head, or taking a few sips while settling into a pose. Students will learn poses with "beer salutations". "Both are centuries-old therapies for body, mind, and soul," the founders said. "The joy of drinking beer and the mindfulness of yoga compliment each other and make for an energizing experience."

Popsugar reported that although beer has high calorie count, it has some notable health benefits, too. Previous studies claim that it can reduce heart attack risks and protect against diabetes.
