This Saturday, February 20th, get out there and enjoy the annual Washington Beer Open House, a statewide event that sees dozens of breweries open the brewhouse doors and welcome visitors for all sorts of special events. But before you head out to set your mind right at all those breweries, perhaps you should think about doing something good for your body.
Like Yoga. At a brewery. With beer. They call it “Beer + Yoga.” #beerplusyoga.
At 10:30 A.M. on Saturday, February 20th, Hellbent Brewing in Seattle’s Lake City neighborhood is hosting an hour-long yoga practice session designed for all skill levels. Beer + Yoga is open to anyone over 21, but you need to register in advance (buy your ticket).
Other upcoming events:
- Beer + Yoga at The Traveler Montlake (pub) on Sunday, February 28th
- Beer + Yoga at Lucky Envelope Brewing on Sunday, March 20th
- Beer + Yoga at Spinnaker Bay Brewing in Hillman City.
The yoga instruction is provided by Just Add Yoga (that’s Jess and Dawn pictured above) and the beer, in this case, is provided by Hellbent Brewing. You need to register in advance and the cost is $25 for the yoga and a beer. Or you can get just the yoga for $20, but where’s the fun in that?
An hour of yoga at 10:30, a pint of beer thereafter. Socialize with other sweaty people, then go experience the rest of the day knowing you started your Saturday out on the right foot. Or the left foot. Whichever your yogi dictates.
Hellbent Brewing is located at 13035 Lake City Way NE, Seattle, WA 98125. Google map it.
Just Add Yoga describes itself like this: “Our goal with Beer + Yoga is to get people together, share our love of Yoga and our passion for drinking beer. Founders Dawn Hood and Jessica Fleming became fast friends during their Yoga teacher training. Yoga has had such a positive effect on their lives and they want to share that with you.”
“Beer + Yoga wants to show that Yoga doesn’t have to be so serious. You don’t have to be able to do the splits or stand on your head. You don’t even have to be able to touch your toes (cough…cough… all you runner friends).”
