Drinking wine while completing your yoga class is more than just every twenty-somethings fantasy, especially when it comes to a rich Chianti Classico or fresh Chardonnay.
Practitioners of the new form of yoga say that having wine during the class helps to embrace the feeling of community. Drinking wine during yoga also helps you to relax quicker, which will put all of your senses in tune to what is really happening with your body. Wine and yoga are both known stress relievers, so most people leaving the class feel a lot less stressed than they did before entering.
Wine is also proven to lessen your risk of getting heart disease or high blood pressure. Yogis are still very conscious of their practice; some may argue even more so. This is not just another reason to drink, but the combo is actually a well-thought out one. And it should be clear, that though the class is known as “Drunk Yoga”, yogis do not get drunk nor will anyone be waking up with a hangover the next day. Class-goers take the class as seriously as they would without the wine, but the overall feeling of the room is more relaxed than normal. The teachers of the classes are all highly trained and practiced yoga instructors, which helps to maintain the structure and validity of the class.
Like other studios, most studios offer a trial class in the case of you being afraid to commit to a group of classes. The environment of the classes is designed for anyone, so this makes it fairly easy to learn the practice. If you've ever considered taking a yoga class, this is the one to take! You will feel comfortable and at ease as you sip your wine through the night's practice.
