BILLED as bringing together two ancient loves, beer yoga is about to stretch out on Lake Wendouree shores.

Beer-loving yogis can unite in raising a pot to the sun at this month’s Ballarat Beer Festival.

The Health Hub Wellness Centre will take festival-goers through their poses in the exercise trend that stems from Germany.

Hub manager Luke Gibson said they had been toying with the idea to help launch the centre’s new yoga classes before an offer from festival organisers to help people loosen-up an limber-up seemed like fun.

“Beer is another element our instructors will add to their technique,” Mr Gibson said.

“Hopefully as people enjoy the festival, they can get a little exercise as well.”

Beer yoga involves sips as transitioning through pints and poses but Mr Gibson hinted there might be prizes for minimal spillage. 

There will be beer salutes, beer planks and plenty of cheers on mats. Beer yoga is free to all Ballarat Beer Festival patrons at the event’s new location by Lake Wendouree on January 20.
