Come for the yoga, stay for the beer…or is that backwards? Either way, with so many of your favorite Raleigh breweries offering classes, it's a great way to try new craft beers, get active, and unwind. Be sure to catch one of these classes this Sunday – and you know what they say – "hair of the [downward facing] dog!"

Big Boss Brewing Company

There are a few more confirmed weeks of Bending and Beer going on biweekly at Big Boss Brewing Co.– but it may not last forever. Don't miss out on the yoga classes offered every other Sunday at 12pm. This class is FREE, and pairs well with a pint of seasonal Harvest Time Pumpkin Ale and lunch from the food trucks that are on site!

Compass Rose Brewing

One of the best parts about this beer yoga destination is that it is donation-based – the yogi can decide how much to donate. Held weekly in the taproom, this FREE Stretch and Flow class is great for all experience levels. Class beings at 11am on Sundays.

Crank Arm

For $12 every Sunday, you can participate in an hour and fifteen-minute yoga class AND donate to Triangle Spokes Group, a charity that helps provide bikes to children in need in the Triangle. Plus, you'll get a 9 oz. beer of your choice, post-workout. Led by Amy Tortorella, this class is held all year round. Can't get enough of a sweat on with yoga alone? Check out Crank Arm's weekly group bike rides on Wednesdays. Meet at the brewery at 6pm to get in on a 10-15 mile ride. The ride is BYOB – bring your own bike!

Raleigh Brewing Company

Pints & Poses takes place every Sunday at 10:30am in the taproom at Raleigh Brewing Co., and to add to the fun, your dog is welcome too! Grab a friend (furry or not) and get refreshed with a full hour of yoga and a beer to follow. Classes are $10 and you can just drop in. Class cards are also available to avoid paying at the door.

Other breweries such as Clouds Brewing, Raleigh Beer Garden, and Neuse River Brewing Company. have hosted similar one-off yoga classes and pop-up events. Plus, others offer run clubs during the week if you are looking to blow of some steam after work. So grab a brew and get going!
