It all started in Germany and now it's become trendy in England, Australia and Thailand — it's #BeerYoga.

It's as straightforward as it sounds, while you're doing your sun salutations, you can enjoy a cold one.

The entire yoga class is drinking and stretching and although they're moving in unison not everyone will be drinking the same beer.

It sounded to good to be true so I went a bit further than just a social media search and it all checked out.

"It adds a little bit more extra relaxation because a lot of people tend to be very tense when they come. Especially their first time," yoga teacher Guzel Mursalimova tells the Business Insider UK.

Mursalimova adds: "The goal is to make people stress-free, relaxed, happy, and if this means that you would have to incorporate beer I think that's perfectly fine and I think that's encouraged."

Craft brewers are also getting in on the trend and hosting special yoga sessions at their breweries to introduce yogis their brew.

As with most good (and bad) trends, it's just a matter of time before it hits South Africa's shores, and you'll have to do a breathalyzer next time your friend boasts that they had such a good yoga class!

Yoga is about reaching a higher consciousness and for many beer does they same thing, so combining the two seems like it was inevitable for some people.

Raise your glasses in the air, warriors! #beeryoga
