“We’re all angry about something, and we’ve all been hanging onto an F-Bomb for a little bit too long,” Ashley Duzich, “Rage Yoga” instructor at Brash Brewing Company in Houston, Texas, says.
Much like the traditional form of the discipline, Rage Yoga combines breathing, stretching, and holding different postures. But the angry spinoff cranks up the attitude, encouraging participants to “scream it all out,” and let go of their inner rage in between ice-cold beer breaks.
“What this does is allow you to have a safe space to let go of your anger, frustration, and rage in a healthy way,” Duzich tells CBS DFW.
Rage Yoga probably isn’t for everybody, Duzich says, nor does she recommend bringing your kids to the expletive-rich classes. But that’s not to say there aren’t light-hearted moments. “One of the funniest things I think I ever heard was, ‘I told you to do the dishes!’” she says. (Relatable.)
Duzich, based in Houston, is one of three certified instructors currently leading Rage Yoga classes. The others are in Calgary and Edmonton, Canada.
At Brash Brewing Company, the alternative yoga form appears to have found its spiritual home. Not only does the Houston brewer boast a cocksure name, its previous beer releases include labels such as “Deadhorse Scottish Hell,” a Scotch Ale; “Hammer Smashed Face,” a Russian Imperial Stout; and “Vulgar Display of Power,” also a Russian Imperial Stout. Rage Yoga’s stated aims to become “zen as f*ck” by “giving zero f*cks” sound like future collabs waiting to happen.
