Chatelaine Magazine, "Six yoga books to brighten your day"
What it’s about: If you ever wanted evidence that yoga can be done anywhere, this book is for you. Set in various bars around New Orleans, this laidback tome takes you through classic yoga poses you can try out in the comfort of your living room.
Why we love it: Each move is paired with a "happy-hour hint" (or alternate position) and a happy-hour drink inspired by the name of each pose.
