For all you beer lovers, here's another reason for you to add yoga to your routine!

Experts from Germany at a hip Berlin yoga studio said that the locals went mad for the idea of stretching during their drinking sessions.

The classes are run by Jhula and Emily, yogis who first saw the idea taking place at Burning Man festival, reports BBC.

Germany's BierYoga A.K.A BeerYoga touts itself as the "marriage of two great loves-beer and yoga. Both are centuries-old therapies for mind, body and soul," according to its website.

"BeerYoga is fun but it's no joke," founder and yogi Jhula writes. "We take the philosophies of yoga and pair it with the pleasure of beer-drinking to reach your highest level of consciousness."

Now, the classes are popping up in Sydney, with students performing 'beer salutations' while casually balancing bottles of beer on their heads.

The practice has gained momentum in countries such as Thailand, Singapore, New Zealand and Australia.
