Beer is not normally associate with the practice of yoga. But the trend of combining the two is growing in the Denver Metro area and Allie Beckmann is bringing it to the Arvada community every other Saturday at Odyssey Beerwerks.
Beckmann said that having a nice cold beer after yoga practice is a good reward and a way to enhance the community aspect of a class.
“People who like beer, like to talk to each other,” said Golden resident Theresa Dixon, who attended the July 8 Tapped in Yoga at Odyssey.
For Dixon yoga gives her a sense of peace and balance and the community of sharing a beer after class adds the the draw of Beckmann’s class.
Tapped in Yoga started in March and meets every other Saturday at the Arvada brewery. Cost for the class is $15 and includes one beer after.
Currently, the class averages seven to 10 participants, but the space can hold at least 20, Beckmann said.
Yoga, Beckmann added can sometimes be so focused that it creates tension, which is why she likes the playfulness of teaching in the taproom.
“No matter where I’m teaching I try to incorporate an element of lightness, of play, of fun,” said Beckmann who teaches at a variety of studios and businesses in the metro area. “I think the space here at the brewery — the energy of that adds to it.”
