With the popularity of both wineries and yoga, it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise to learn that a growing number of wineries are bringing the two together. While exercise and alcohol may not seem like a likely pairing, wine serves as an excellent treat to enjoy after finishing yoga, Pilates or other types of fitness classes. Like wine and cheese, wine and fitness appear to be a perfect pairing.
Enjoying Wine and Yoga in Southern California
If you want to enjoy the experience of wine and yoga, you can head over to Malibu Family Wines. With multiple vineyards and wineries included in the family, the wine and yoga events take place at the Los Olivos location at 2363 Alamo Pintado Avenue. The town of Los Olivos, which has a history dating back to the 1860’s, is located in the beautiful Santa Ynez Valley. The Los Olivos winery is known as Semler Wines and is characterized by its fun, casual atmosphere.
The Semler Wines wine and yoga experience takes place every Friday at 5:30. The cost of the event is $20 at the door. For that fee, you get one hour of yoga and a glass of wine. RSVP is required by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. The event is restricted to participants 21 and over and you need to bring your own mat. If you can’t make it to yoga or you simply can’t get enough of Semler Wines, the winery also offers live music on the weekends from noon to 5:00 pm.
Nearby Wine and Yoga Opportunities
For those who are willing to travel a little further, there are even more wine and yoga opportunities available in Napa Valley. One such winery is Domaine Carneros, which offers a package that combines a private yoga class with lunch and wine tasting. After completing an hour-long yoga session on the lawn, participants enjoy a glass of wine before taking a walk through the winery. The experience ends with a light brunch, which includes more wine, on the vineyard’s patio.
If you are interested in a lengthier experience, set your sights upon Sagrada in the Central Coast. The Sagrada Wellness yoga retreat center offers a three-night yoga, wine and chocolate retreat that can serve as a girl’s getaway or a romantic couples vacation. The retreat features yoga classes during the day and an evening assortment of fine chocolates paired with a local wine. Participants also have the opportunity to hike, explore and watch wildlife on the picturesque 45-acre mountain getaway. All meals and accommodations are included for the $1,295 fee.
These are just a few examples of the great wineries in Southern California and elsewhere in the state. With its idyllic weather, breathtaking views and ample amenities, Southern California is the perfect place to enjoy a luxurious lifestyle.
