Poses & Pairings 8:00 am

Sommelier and certified yoga instructor Quynh Cohen leads this introductory yoga session with three poses each paired with a Virginia wine and fresh fruit. The art of “WINEfullness” encourages you to focus and concentrate on the flavor profiles of the wine, and each pose is constructed to enhance meditative flow and flexibility while adjusting your body to relax. We embrace nature and only serve sustainable, biodynamic and lower alcohol wines in our classes. The combination of wine sipping and yoga is a restorative and reflective experience.
