Poses and Pints is just one of the ways in which In Your Element is creatively building a stronger yoga community, while at the same time supporting a local, small business. In Your Element has teamed up with the new local brewery Vail Brewing Co. to host monthly yoga classes in their tap room. For a pretty small price, ($10ish) you get a full hour class taught by In Your Element instructors and a pint of beer to rehydrate afterwards. The beer alone is worth the admission for these events, the VBC has a dozen ta handles, and there’s something everyone. And if your hungry, Rocky Mountain Taco foodtruck is right outside. But the yoga is the highlight, and also your justification for getting a few pints deep by noon. I’m not sure what is a better use of your Saturday than yoga in a bar and drinking beer and eating tacos with amazing yogis after.
This last Poses and Pints was on Halloween, and attending yogis were encouraged to dress in costume and have fun. There was never a dull moment in the class. Bobby L’Heureux kept it lively and silly at times, but no question he also made sure we were working hard enough to earn our pints.
