Wine & Yoga at Sylvan Cellars

Wine & Yoga at Sylvan Cellars

Looking for a mid-week stress reliever? Sylvan Cellars in Rome City offers Wine & Yoga every Wednesday from 6-7 p.m. all summer long. Instructor Kristi Martin provides a re-energizing yoga experience that can prepare anyone to tackle the rest of their week with confidence. After you’ve found your zen, Sylvan Cellars offers a complimentary glass of wine or beer. I recommend sipping your vino or brewski on the porch for added tranquility. After this week’s session, Martin described the vibe of Wine & Yoga as, “relaxation then afterwards fellowship. You’re in a more relaxed state, you can have wine and chill and have some conversation.” This atmosphere is open to any skill level. My friend and I attended this Wednesday and had no prior yoga experience. After learning the basics and taking in the peaceful scenery, I am certain we will be back for more! “Everybody has always been able to leave super relaxed,” Martin said, “it centers you, it’s just an overall good experience.” Classes are $17 which includes a glass of wine or craft beer of your choice afterwards. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own yoga mat, but if you forget yours at home (like I did) Kristin has extras. Check out this post for more details about the class. For more information about Wine & Yoga, follow Sylvan Cellars on...

Merlot? Wine not. We all know that Memorial Day weekend is around the corner, but did you know that Friday, May 25th is National Wine day? What better way to kick off the start of the summer season than with a full glass of wine? Well, I have a few ideas to help you celebrate this delightful occasion right here in northeast Indiana.

If you can’t celebrate on Friday, stop in on Saturday for a tour and a tasting. Tours are offered on Saturdays and Sundays at 12:30, 2:30, and 3:30 p.m.   Two EE’s Winery View this post on Instagram Happy Daylight Savings!
