About six months ago, the Caroline Rivera from Studio 83 Holistic Wellness started offering Beer Yoga every other Thursday night at The Marquee, a live music venue that serves craft beer in Sioux City, Iowa. “It’s less intimidating, less expensive,” she said. “It’s a way for me to introduce something that’s been so healing for me to a group of people who aren’t necessarily willing to walk into a yoga studio … Because, through no fault of the studios, it’s just not a place they feel comfortable.”
