And yoga and beer, and Pilates and many other drinks. Although it may seem like an eccentric idea, it is a reality and more and more centres and lessons aim at the fashion of wine & yoga, since both concepts are very healthy.
The benefits of yoga are well known, but wine also brings a world of sensations and advantages to take care of the body. So if we unite one thing and the other, the result is magical.
Yoga in the vineyards
It is a new trend that can be interpreted in two ways. On the one hand, places where you can practice yoga and then you drink a glass of relaxedly, and on the other hand, there are several wineries to which health is a main concern where, in addition to enjoying the environment and the vineyards, we can also practice yoga.
Exercise with a glass of wine
It seems that the trend will continue to grow: what is fashionable is not only to go to wineries and relax but also the way of doing exercises and postures (asanas as they are called in the world of yoga) with a glass of wine in hand. This is styled in many places in New York, for example, and as we already said, this also extends to other beverages such as beer.
In fact, those who love yoga consider it a strange thing, because little yoga can be done while we try to hold the cup and drink at the same time. It’s about doing something different, original and fun. It really serves to socialize with others, and to say that you are doing sports while drinking a glass of wine or a pint of beer.
Benefits of yoga
It is interesting to see how a session of this type is carried out, and even some people say that they are not able to perform some rather complicated postures of yoga if it is not with a sip of wine.
Improving mind and body in a single discipline. It could be a definition of yoga, since among its benefits, we find cardiovascular ones, besides knowing how to handle stress and anxiety thanks to meditation and knowing how to breathe correctly. A study by the American College of Cardiology in Dubai showed that patients with heart disease who practice yoga in addition to aerobic exercise reduce blood pressure, body mass index and cholesterol levels up to twice as much.
