You’ve probably heard of hot yoga but now Kolkata has ice cold yoga – Beer Yoga, that has taken the traditional art by storm and after some globe-trotting, it has finally come to our city to make us more joyful.
Because everything is more fun with BEER, Afra Tafri brought Beer Yoga to Kolkata for the first time and we couldn’t be more excited.
“As they say one should not cease exploring new things, whenever something new is done, it has its own impact. I will never forget experiencing this for the first time. It feels like you are transported to another dimension – because the music was different, people were enthusiastic and having fun with their fitness in mind at the same time and I tell you the ambiance was very much supportive.” – said Kuldeep, visual artist at Afra Tafri.
Beer Yoga is a heavenly match of traditional yoga poses with the goodness of beer that compliments the joy of drinking beer and the mindfulness of yoga. Both are centuries-old therapies for body, mind, and soul. It makes fitness fun, Stress-free and happy and provides an energizing experience.
“I meditate regularly but this was a totally different experience with a very different energy. It was a good experience.” – said Pronomi, an art-of-living student whose participation was impromptu.
Today, the Beer Yoga event at Afra Tafri, saw Kolkatans combine their love of beer and fitness and what they got is some real chill scenes with beer sip breaks. With a dance floor as the yoga location, good visuals and music was just icing on the cake for the participants of this unique yoga style.
“This was the first time that any organization conducted such an event in Kolkata. The participants were very responsive. They were excited and retained the energy till the end of the 50mins session, which is usually not the case with many participants elsewhere.”Abhishek Banerjee, the Beer Yoga instructor.
Now, you can practice yoga with a bottle in your hand or balance it on top of your head. What are you waiting for?
