Alcohol Does Not Belong in Wellness Spaces
The other day I got an invite to attend a yoga event. My initial reaction was “Yes!”…until I read through the entire event description. The yoga class would be held in a wine garden and attendees would receive a complimentary glass of wine before and after the class.
Ugh. Hard pass.
I’m sober myself, but my sobriety wasn’t the main reason I cringed in response to this event. Rather, I was alarmed by the deeply problematic messaging that alcohol is associated with health, wellness, and vitality.
