Yoga is a totally ‘indie’ and cool way to spend your Hen Do.
It may seem exhausting to some of you but it’s the perfect group activity whether you’re old or young, advanced or a beginner. You’ll be stepping out of your comfort zone in the company of family, close friends and most importantly with a skilled yoga instructor!
It’s worth noting yoga isn’t necessarily a cheap party option, but it’s completely on trend. There are dozens of yoga variations/experiences right now and we’ve narrowed down our top faves!
If you’re going to sweat, you might as well go for it!
This isn’t just an excuse to see through your handsome coaches’ white gym shirt, there are actual medical benefits too.
The heat allows the body to stretch and compress more deeply easing muscles and joints, aiding the healing of existing injuries.
Typically the yoga studios will reach temperatures of around 40 degrees. Which also helps detoxify your body and even help burn fat more effectively, result!
If going teetotal on your bachelorette seems impossible we have the perfect combination for you. Beer yoga. The joy of drinking beer and the mindfulness of yoga complement each other, making for a fun, unique experience.
It is essentially regular yoga with the addition of balancing beer bottles and taking the occasional sip (or two).
We all have that one friend that is married to her dog and well now it’s actually time for her to marry her fiancé we wouldn’t want Mr. Fluffy to feel left out…
Doga works on the natural bond that already exists between you and your dog. If there’s stress and tension in YOU, your dog may feel and absorb it. Therefore this should help relieve this.
Don’t be put off if you have a mischievous canine. The dogs don’t necessarily have to be involved in the yoga poses for the relaxing effects to work.
In a way, by having dogs involved the attention is taken away from you, so if you’re not a flexible Hen you can still embrace the activity.
Yes this is actually a thing. Think hippy, dance party and festival all rolled into one.
It’s a must attend for bass loving Brides. A professional DJ will be there, along with various yoga instructors explaining the rhythmic music qualities and teaching poses that help heal the body and mind (allowing you to momentarily forget about all the wedmin)!
The rave hosts around 100 people so you can let go of fear, self-judgement and inhibitions. Most of all have a fabulous and psychedelic time!
Perhaps slightly classier than pole dancing, aerial yoga (aka gravity yoga) still involves being high up and channeling your inner acrobat.
Whether you are using an acrobatic hoop or aerial silks, your fellow Hens will be immersed in an intense activity they’ve probably never tried before.
Not only will it be a good old giggle, learning ‘circus’ like tricks is a really healthy workout to tone your core muscles.
Yes this is a real thing! Perfect for all ages and fitness levels, it’s definitely worth considering. Laughter yoga is based on the principal that your body doesn’t know the difference between fake and genuine laughter; so you will get the same psychological and physiological benefits either way.
Of course once you and your gal pals are together 100% of the giggles are legit! The laughter exercises are quirky, playful and a great stress-buster (especially suitable for the Bride-to-be).
Overall yoga as a whole is drama free party idea! You don’t need to prepare anything as that’s the instructors’ job, you can wear whatever you want (providing its flexible) and no one cares if you go makeup free and style a majorly messy bun.
