Drinking alcohol while working out seems an unlikely combination, but the two were successfully combined recently in the rooftop area of the 78th floor of Thailand's highest building King Power Mahanakhon skyscraper as yoga lovers stretched and sipped wine during the “Sunrise Wine Yoga” event.

 With the sun rising over the city, celebrities Karn Chatikavanij, Pitchana Ekachai, Stephanie Lerch, Chaiyapat Sadakorn, Paranya Lapudomsakul, Pathanon Treethepchanchai, and Jutarat Kaewmanee were put through their paces at the event sponsored by leading New Zealand leading wine brand, Brancott Estate and Brew Yoga Thailand, an event organiser who specialises in orchestrating bubbly workouts with a variety of favorite beverages.

“Yoga Wine” was recently introduced in Thailand and quickly gained popularity among health enthusiasts looking for an innovative workout.

Yoga Wine adapted the traditional yoga by bringing in wines to pair up with the balancing routine of yoga. The method creates artistic movements for the body while grasping a wine glass and posing elegantly. The challenge is the balancing of the wine-filled glass throughout the session without spilling in order to taste the drink after the session. The Zumba class that followed was designed to help relax the body, allowing all the muscles to work to their fullest extent.

The ambiance and the venue are two important factors and Sunrise Wine Yoga certainly met both criteria. The venue offered the experience of doing yoga on the biggest sky-high glass floor in the city as the warm sunrise gently bathed them in light,

The combination of classic yoga and a great white wine turned out to be a new exciting method of exercise with a fun vibe. Brancott Estate Flight was selected to pair with this yoga session for its characteristics that match perfectly with the wellness concept of the event. This low-calorie Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand is a white wine that comes with 90 calories per 142 ml of serving, a light body, and medium acidity.
