Oregon Beer Yoga

photography by Joe Kline

If there are two features that define Bendites, it’s their love of beer and their love of fitness. Combine them both and you have Bend Beer Yoga, which is just what it sounds like—drinking beer (or cider, wine or cocktails) while getting your heart rate up with beginner yoga poses. Bend Beer Yoga sets up shop at breweries around town, letting locals buzz on both endorphins and hoppy libations.
