Is it a joke, a German fad in Asia, a clever PR stunt, or a dismal reality? See below.

Beer at Yoga?

(BBC) Have you got the bottle for "beer yoga"? A new fitness craze from Germany, combining traditional yoga poses while drinking bottles of beer, is gaining popularity in Asia. Video
This goes completely against the Eight Factors or Limbs (Ashtanga) of Integral or Raja Yoga, which the Sage Patanjali outlined in The Yoga Sutras or Aphorisms. The purpose of yoga is meditation. Violating precepts does not lead to success in meditation or even in better posture, poise, strength, and balance for those just doing poses. But nobody cares about details. They care about being controlled by fads and counterintuitive diets or exercise programs or being "hipsters."
There will be NO wall between Mexico and US
    Demonstrators want no ban, no wall, sanctuary for all. And they'll get no wall.

    Pres. Trump's GOP backs down on building wall between US and Mexico. Trump lied.

    There will be no wall, but Trump can arrange a war on North Korea. So watch it.

      You won't mind if we give ourselves a tax break (on your backs), will you? Trump's smart.
