If you are stressed, then you owe it to yourself to let off some steam, and nobody should blame you for that. Some people are comfortable visiting the gym and drowning their worries in a good workout, while others find a sensual, comforting bath an adequate source of stress relief.
And now there is a crop of folks who have found a solution to relieving their stress in beer, expletives, and yoga.
Lighting Scented Candles And Sitting Still Meditating Does Not Work For These Guys
And we get it. Everyone is different. And more importantly, we should all do something to cope with stress in our lives before it does us in.
This is a yoga class, all right, but instead of calm, comforting hums and polite "Namaste" greetings, you will hear profanities screamed out like there is no tomorrow.
Rage Yoga Is About Losing The Rage, Raw And Unfiltered, Exactly As You Feel It
It's not that the guys behind this new yoga paradigm aren't aware that yoga is about relaxation, meditation, and peace. They do. But they want something that will cater to the needs of those too stressed to stay calm.
Here, See What They Say About This Type Of Yoga:
"We are all angry about something and we all have been holding onto an 'F"-bomb for a little bit too long… So that's what this does... it allows you to have a safe space to let go of your frustration and rage in a healthy way… and then also wash it all away with some ice-cold beer."
This was according to Duzich, an obviously satisfied rage yoga practitioner. She went on to add the following:
"We actually take beer breaks during the class. It's definitely not for everybody and that's totally OK… I also don't recommend bringing your children."
Hear that? So, if you thought common stress relief methods were too tame for you, then rage yoga might be exactly what you have been waiting for.
In This Yoga Class, You Can Scream Anything You Feel Like
And then you can wash away that vulgar taste in your mouth with a calming can of cold beer before your next session begins. Not a bad deal, right? Stress relief and a good time.
If nothing else seems to help you put down the burdens weighing on you, then this yoga technique might be precisely what you need.
You have nothing to lose. And besides, it's not like anyone will complain when you drop a few f-bombs in the process. You have to admit, having that liberty is pretty therapeutic on some level.
