What is Drunk Yoga?
It’s not just yoga and wine…
Drunk Yoga was created after a conversation between two friends in a bar. While talking about yoga, Eli’s friend said he needed yoga so badly because he “couldn’t even touch [his] toes”…and proceeded to do so, with the help of his good friend, vino. What started off as a good laugh about flexibility developed into a realization about how many people feel excluded from yoga in its present form. And so, Drunk Yoga was born.
If you can believe it, we don’t want you to get drunk on wine. Truly. We want you to get drunk on the feeling that comes with experiencing joy and self empowerment! That’s exactly why our classes are set up the way they are. As a beginner (or even an old pro!) it can be intimidating to walk into a studio knowing no one. Often, it makes people feel self-conscious, and in turn, prevents them from experiencing the full benefit of yoga. That’s why we turn yoga into a party and create unity through community in every single class we teach, whether that be our traditional Drunk Yoga with wine, or Coffee Yoga. Lose your balance? Instead of feeling awkward, you’re surrounded by a new group of friends to cheer you on and high five you when you find it again. Our mission is to inspire joy, cultivate community, and bring you back to yourself.
We also realize that our community is extremely fortunate to have access to yoga. That’s why for every class you take with us, we make a donation. We not only provide yoga to populations that wouldn’t otherwise get access to it, but we also donate to organizations that already foster joy through self-empowerment. By finding your joy with us, you are directly helping someone else find theirs, too.
