Beer Yoga is a Thing, and it’s Happening Tonight! (4/30)

Beer Yoga The Well
Image via The Well

We’ve got crystal water bottles, matcha in everything, collagen beverages, plogging (that’s running while picking up trash, in case you didn’t know), and regeneration classes. Perhaps all these trends are just too much, and it’s a smarter move to go back to the basics. Like beer. And yoga. Now you can practice your smoking camel pose at The Well (272 Meserole St) in Bushwick at their Downward Donut Beer Yoga sessions. The class is $20 but includes a token for a free beer. Today’s class will be held outdoors in the backyard (omg, is it finally Spring…?!). RSVP on Facebook.
