Bensenville, Ill.— Ever wonder whether a love of beer could be somehow fused with fitness? Well, the Bensenville Park District’s ‘Beer Yoga at the Barn,’ might just be what the doctor ordered!
Join the Wood Street Fitness yoga instructor at Fischer Farm 6 p.m. Saturday, October 15, for an hour-long experience where a can of beer becomes a prop and an important part of the yoga routine. Fischer Farm is located at 16W680 Grand Avenue, Bensenville.
“Beer yoga is the marriage of two great loves–beer and yoga,” says Fitness Supervisor Silvia Acevedo. “Both are centuries-old therapies for body, mind and soul. The joy of drinking beer and the mindfulness of yoga complement each other and are sure to make for an energizing experience.”
The program is open to those ages 21 and older, and the registration fee is $10. Participants must present ID to check in before class starts. Wear comfortable workout clothes in layers. Mats and Yoga props such as blocks and straps can be provided, but participants can bring their own if they prefer. Participants should bring their own unopened beer cans (no glass bottles), limit two, which can be consumed during the program. Water is encouraged for hydration purposes.
Space is limited. Those interested must register by Oct. 14 at the Deer Grove Leisure Center, 1000 W. Wood Street, Bensenville.
