In Napa Valley, vinyasas in a vineyard and Pilates then Pinots


"Lift glass to mouth. Repeat." isn't a workout. But new workout-and-wine programs debuting in Napa Wine Country this spring are all about healthy balance.

Vinyasa in the VineyardVinyasa in the Vineyard
Napa, CA

At Domaine Carneros, Christie Dufault—a rare combo of yogi and certified sommelier—will guide you through asanas on the grounds of a grand Loire Valley-style chateau. Refresh afterwards (notice how we didn’t say hydrate?) with a flute of their signature champagne and a cool-down tour of the vineyard, followed by an open-air brunch featuring smoked salmon and pastries from the famed Model bakery.

Classes are weekday mornings and require advanced booking, $125 per person, for the yoga class, vineyard walk, and sparkling wine brunch. Contact Stacey Meyer at 707-257-2564 ext. 127 or smeyer@domainecarneros.com

Yoga in the BarnYoga in a Barn
Napa Valley, CA

Take in the serenity of the Silverado Hills from the second floor of Jami Grassi’s barn (September–June), which also overlooks 14 acres of vineyards and a pond stocked with turtles, frogs, and long legged herons. All yoga, no wine—this is a different kind of relaxation, where Grassi wants the natural beauty to help you discover the beauty of your own nature. That said, her vinyasa classes, routed in Iyengar, Astanga, and Anusara can be exacting and challenging. So mind how much you imbibe the night before.

For more information, contact Jami@jamiyoga.com
