For some people, wine and yoga might seem like an unlikely combination. To others, it sounds like a perfectly awesome way to spend some time. After all, they both should be relaxing and that’s pretty much the goal.
Of course, there are different types of yoga. The type of yoga to do with a glass of wine would not include a strenuous session or one done in 100 degree temperature. The kind of yoga that is perfect to practice with wine is more relaxing. Move through the poses and keep the wine within reach.
That’s right! It’s starting to trend that people are actually drinking wine while they practice yoga. The thing is that the benefits are well documented. You might be surprised to find out how great of a combination the two things are.
There Are Social Benefits To Yoga Wining
Of course, yoga can be practiced alone. But doing yoga in class can be a much better experience. That is especially if you are taking a class like the Yoga Unwined founded by Morgan Perry. Her class ends with a wine tasting. That’s the perfect time for people to sip wine and socialize. Imagine how enriched your life will be after just one class.
Double The Impact Of Relaxation
You know that wine has the power to relax. That’s what it’s about. People often talk about going home after a long day and unwinding with a glass of wine. Add to that the fact that you are doing yoga, it’s like having ice cream cake. You like ice cream. You like cake. Smash them together and you have two things you like. Only this is wine and yoga, much healthier for you than a 10,000 calorie desert.
The Wine Will Taste Much Better
When you are practicing yoga the right way, you are clearing your mind. You take daily thoughts and push them to the side so that you can concentrate more on what you’re doing. When you take a sip of wine when you’re mind is clear, you will be totally in the moment. You will taste the full glass of wine without thinking anything else and you will get so much more out of it.
It’s Great For Weight Loss
There is research that suggests wine can help reduce fat. It has the ability to turn white fat into brown fat, which is the type of fat that burns up calories rather than stores them. Yoga has also been known to reduce fat. There are certain poses and certain breathing exercises that have been proven to aid in weight loss. Put the two together and you have a great combination that will help you lose weight effectively.
