Bend & Brew: From Stretching to SippingWhere Yoga Meets Beer in Asheville
Asheville has been named one of the most yoga-friendly towns by Yoga Journal magazine, and also won the Beer City poll four years in a row. So it was simply a matter of time before these two local obsessions came together.
Three days a week, yoga enthusiasts can now practice their poses at Asheville breweries with the new Bend & Brew series. Each beginner-level class lasts from 45 minutes to and hour, and is followed immediately by a tasting of the brewery's regular and seasonal beers.
Travelling Yogini Yoga Tours, which also offers regular yoga walking tours of Asheville, started offering the tours to celebrate local breweries at to "bring yoga to beer-lovers."
Classes are held on Saturdays at Wicked Weed Brewing, on Sundays at Hi-Wire Brewing and on Tuesdays at Highland Brewing. Each class is $15 (cash only), and spots are first come, first served. Check the website for additional details.
