Yoga And Wine

June 8th 7Pm

yoga-wine-food1

Join Betsy Barry of Franklin Yoga & Wellness and Mark Lenzi of Franklin Liquors for a sensory exploration of wine through the energy systems of the body.

This unique workshop combines a 6o-minute yoga class with a carefully sequenced wine pairing designed to open and balance the major energy centers, known as “chakras.” With a heightened sense of awareness, we will explore each chakra through physical observation of each shared wine, discovering taste, flavor and feel in a new way.

No prior knowledge of yoga or wine is required. Plan to bring an open mind and leave feeling balanced and satisfied with a new appreciation of both wine and self.

7 Chakras And 7 Wines

Class Limit 18

french-wine-guild

Developed by the Wine Scholar Guild with the support of the French Ministry of Agriculture, this specialization program is designed for advanced students of wine, whether professionals or serious wine hobbyists. This is NOT an introductory wine class; students should have professional wine experience or previous classroom study. Students must be familiar with the concepts of viticulture and vinification, major grape varieties, wine regions, and wine styles from across the globe, and have experience tasting wine in a formal setting.

Our next session starts September 6 and will run on nine consecutive Tuesday evenings.
