Chicago's Boozy and Beverage-Themed Yoga
Yoga has a rich history in the practice of spirituality, discipline, and wellness - and more recently, beer and mimosas. It's no surprise that yoga is most commonly paired with health drinks, cold pressed juices, or tea. However, breweries across the country are starting to add yoga to their offerings, perhaps because breweries tend to have large spaces.
Vice District Brewing in South Loop also holds brewery yoga classes, which happen every other Sunday:
Join us for yoga this Sunday! Make sure to get tickets in advance, as we sold out or last session! https://t.co/DKEnWNbBU4— ViceDistrictBrewing (@Vice_District) July 21, 2016
Evanston's Temperance Beer Co. (below), which holds Temperance Trikonasana the 3rd Saturday of every month.
Yogis pay $15 for this hour-long vinyasa yoga class (1:00 - 2:15pm). If you don't feel refreshed by the yoga, maybe the free post-class pint will do the trick - or the fact that the class also supports local charities.
Beer yoga lovers should grab this hoppy yoga mat to tote to class:
In River North, Clark Street Ale House hosts bar yoga in their beer garden (during warm months).
Wicker Park's Whiskey Business (above) is another outdoor boozy yoga option in the summer, where yoga enthusiasts can pose on the rooftop before sipping on a boozy slushy.
Mimosas and Brunch Yoga
Pinstripes hosts Bends and Blends, a yoga class followed by a bottomless brunch. Tickets typically include your first mimosa, and if you still have energy after grub, stick around for some bocce or bowling.
Yoga Six holds a yoga and mimosas class at the top of the John Hancock building, where you can pair bubbles and incredible views with your moves. Classes are 60 minutes and accompanied by a live DJ.
Dinner and Yoga
Verdant Matter is an eco friendly shop in Pilsen that hosts monthly 75 minute yoga classes followed by dinner in partnership with Breathe / Eat Chicago.
Yoga with Coffee or Tea
Studio Three in River North has fitness classes including yoga and cycling, and has a Real Good Juice Co. in the lobby serving cold pressed juices, smoothies, coffee, and espresso drinks with choices such as almond milk lattes for those with dietary restrictions.
Bru Chicago has a wide variety of drinks including tea, coffee, and protein shakes, and offers free yoga classes on Tuesdays.
Pop-up boozy yoga classes have been hosted by Howells and Hood, Joe's Wine Cellar, the Dana Hotel, Reverie and Whole Foods, all led by Chicago's Yoga Quench.
VibeUP is also a good resource for yoga-related events, particularly their summer yoga series. Head to 2 North Riverside Plaza every first Wednesday from 4-7PM pair outdoor yoga and mindfulness with happy hour that includes High Brew Coffee. 2016 dates: May4, Jun1, Jul6, Aug3, Sep7.
The Chicago Jewish Community Center's class offerings have included beer and yoga, check their online schedule to see upcoming options.
