Bend Beer Yoga

So you like beer and yoga? Who doesn't? What about drinking beer and doing yoga at the same time? Yeah, that's a next-level Bendite activity, for sure.

Keep an eye on for future classes. 2 pm, Sat., 6/23, GoodLife Brewing, 700 Cenutry Dr. and various locations in Bend. Ages 21+ w/ ID.
