Yoga Pub Dating? Combining the three British loves of Yoga, Dating and errr....Pubs.
If the idea of seeing a potential partner lycra clad and sweating profusely leaves you more OMG than OMM....then at first glance Yoga Pub Dating might not be for you.
But just hold on a Downward Dog second. In the spirit of Yoga, take a deep breath, and leave your judgements to the side for a moment. Then invite the idea that, quirky as it sounds, Yoga Pub Dating might even be a better way to get to know someone new than conventional dinner-and-a-movie date.
Yoga expert Richard Brook launches weekly singles night Yoga Pub Dating. Firm believers that the best dates give people something to talk about, it’s no surprise they’re backing an activity that ‘Opens your Heart energy.
Richard's interactive style of teaching enables participants to connect with each other as part of the experience of practising yoga, then later retire for a drink of whatever takes your yogic fancy at a nearby pub and discuss who had the best Sun Salutation.
Teacher Richard Brook, Director of Creative Yoga London, explains why Yoga is a great way to get to know someone new ‘When people meet in everyday life, especially on a date, they can feel awkward and distracted. Yoga relaxes and energises you so you feel more vibrant, present and authentic' The class is geared to suit all levels of experience, from beginner all the way up - as we all benefit from healthy, fun time spent with others. And surprisingly there’s been a strong demand from men too’.
The classes begin with relaxation and basic meditation. Then move on to partner yoga and connection exercises where we partners rotate so everyone gets a chance to work with everyone. You also build up a collective comfort with one another which also makes it easier to chat later' While even the most open minded Singleton might be slightly self conscious about profuse sweating, they can be reassured. ‘It’s a far cry from Bikram Yoga where you’re standing dripping with sweat. The class is geared towards Interaction and connection’ adds Richard.
Of course you could always skip the yoga and go straight to the pub. But unless you arrive in loose clothes with a light glow, people might be suspicious. And without doing Yoga first, you’re going to have nothing to talk about, which is kind of the point!
Yoga mats provided. Just bring an open mind. And a thirst.
