Yoga & Beer? Namast-YAY!

Grab a friend and meditate, move and flow with a 90-minute yoga class in the tranquil, outdoor Cottonwood Plaza at the Portola Hotel & Spa, followed by craft beer at Monterey’s original craft brewery, Peter B’s Brewpub.


Peter B’s and the Portola Hotel have partnered with Monterey-based Yogi, Kate Balog for a Yoga + Beer Summer Series, open to all levels of students ages 21+. Scheduled for just four weeks (July 9, 16, 23 & 30), the 90-minute yoga class will begin at 11am and commence with a pint of beer or glass of house wine at Peter B’s. Classes are $20 per person and you must provide your own mat.
