Come to Vino Vinyasa with Kristina for a truly multi-sensory experience! We will begin with a vinyasa flow yoga class, mindfully moving the body in sync with the breath. We will play with balance, strength, and flexibility to begin the process of awakening all five senses. Kristina will bring her Essential Oils to pique your sense of smell. Josh (Kristina’s oh-so-talented husband) will provide live music to guide you into the rhythm of sound. After the one-hour class, with awakened senses, it’s time to tantalize the taste buds with wine and chocolate tasting. Mingle with fellow yogis from our community while enjoying lite snacks, wine and chocolate. Must be 21 years old or older to taste the wine.

Let your Light Shine into the New Year!
New Year’s Day Workshop with Susana Laborde-Blaj
Sunday, January 1, 2017
A mindful and consistent Yoga practice can bring more health to your body and more clarity to your mind. This translates to more kindness, patience, and happiness for you and people close to you, as well as more peace into the world.
Work on breath, strength, agility & flexibility as you move from distraction to attention in this mindful practice. Postures and physical exertion (asana) will prepare the breath for specific breathing exercises (pranayama), and all this will prepare the mind for Meditation.
Expect 75 minutes of a Mindful Flow linking breath and movement, a short presentation followed by 20 minutes of breathing exercises, a guided relaxation and a Meditation.
