    Anyone that has traveled abroad knows that after a few weeks away from the good ole’ US of A, you start to miss it like crazy.

    We knew Germans liked beer, but we couldn’t have predicted they’d incorporate it into their yoga practice. Germany has introduced the latest international fitness craze, and it isn’t just Berlin hipsters that are into it. It’s beer yoga. Yup, it’s exactly how it sounds; consisting of enjoying a few refreshing sips of beer between each soul and core strengthening pose.

    So if you’re not caught up, don’t scroll past Retta shaming your lazy “But-I’m-Not-Caught-Up-Yet!” behind.
