New Retreats Combined Wine and Yoga
Wine and yoga are both commonly sought out for relaxation, but it is not until very recently that the two have been paired up in some unique retreats. At the Deloach Vineyard in Sonoma there are retreats held over the summer for $1,000-$1,100 per person. ''Yoga + Wine'' workshops can be found throughout the country this summer.
Though the idea is described as "healthy indulgence" due to the health benefits attributed to wine and the calming effect of both the drink and the yoga, not everyone agrees with the combination. Many traditionalists believe that not only does alcohol not really have a place in the yoga lifestyle, but that it will simply be unproductive to combine the two in such a short period (as evidenced by the yoga/tequila disaster on the Bad Girl's Club). But with the every-growing popularity of the two things, as well as the relaxing lifestyle that they are both associated with, this seems like a trend that will stick around.
