Starting your day with a pint of craft beer isn’t the best idea, but getting in an hour of yoga (and rewarding yourself with sips afterward) is.
BYOB, meet BYOM.
Bring your own mat, that is. If you haven’t tried a local yoga class at your favorite brewery in Northern Virginia, now might be the time. Here are seven upcoming classes to consider that will have you taking deep breaths and sipping great brews. (And, don’t forget your mat!)
