As featured on The Gothamist. The official book by Eli Walker, the rebel behind the viral Drunk Yoga phenomenon! Drink wine. Do yoga. Be happy! Drunk Yoga is taking over...not even your bookshelf is safe! The official Drunk Yoga book includes 50 fun (and funny!) variations on traditional yoga poses including: Merlot-sana Vino-yasa WERK-Sasana Shot-a-runga Sip-da-Vino-sana Malbec-asana Bottle-konasana and so much more! In addition, you'll learn the Drunk Yoga rules (so you don't make any pour decisions), partner activities (so you won't have to drink alone), hilarious fun facts, crazy stories from real Drunk Yoga classes, poems, drawings, and other fun surprises! Full of wine, yoga, jokes, and joy, Drunk Yoga is for the experienced yogi, the average barfly, the social butterfly, and the wallflower who needs a few sips of liquid courage. It's about wine. And yoga. And not taking yourself too seriously. Already a huge hit for bachelor and bachelorette parties, birthday celebrations, and even office and team-building activities, this official book is founder Eli Walker's newest way to bring Drunk Yoga to you, wherever you are. "Yoga can be as lightheartedly fun or as deeply personal as you make it. And it should be both. Yoga means "unity." It is the awakened experience of your life. I've seen people get turned off by yoga, or develop an aversion to it, because, for many, it can appear too regimented and commercialized, as it is widely marketed for the already fit and flexible. But here's the thing: there are bajillions of ways to yoga. Just one way is to do it with wine in your hand in the back of a bar. And lucky for you, here's a book about it!"

Moving Stretch is an effective, powerful and fun way of freeing the body from hunching, restriction and even pain. In our sedentary lives we often neglect our bodies and develop a range of physical issues including poor posture, fatigue, low range of motion, pain and even early signs of ageing. But what if you could change visibly with only 10-20 minutes of stretching a day? So often we think of stretching as boring or something we "should get around to", but never do. But Moving Stretch is different because it is a lot more fun, satisfying and effective than "normal" stretching. Even a short stretching session can yield benefits that may last the whole day, making everything a little bit better. Moving Stretch is a form of resistance stretching and its secret formula is to combine movement and tension within each stretch, like an animal does, or like we do when we yawn and stretch. This helps us to work on our fascia, reconditioning it and releasing any areas which are tight and stuck. Our fascia is basically dense connective tissue, which is like a wetsuit under our skin that makes us the shape that we are, holding everything in place.If it is in good condition then we feel free, tall, strong and open, but if it is too tight, thick or stuck together in places, then it can limit our movements, make us hunch over, cause pain and even make us look older by pulling down on our face. Moving with tension engages the fascia, re-shapes and releases it, freeing us to be ourselves again.Created by Suzanne Wylde for anyone who wants to stretch, regardless of how inflexible, or inflexible they are, these stretches are easy to pick up and fun to use. Moving with tension engages the fascia, re-shapes and releases it, freeing us to be ourselves again. The Moving Stretch book takes you through some interesting information on stretching, fascia, resistance stretching, how to assess your own flexibility and even has a section on motivating you to stretch!
