noun: wine; plural noun: wines
1. an alcoholic drink made from fermented grape juice.
- the state of being in good health, especially as an actively pursued goal.
So I guess if you combine an alcoholic drink made from fermented grapes and the state of being in good health, you have a really good time, or a really good way to look at the goal of staying healthy and happy. Wine and wellness are two things thought to be separate but really have the same goal. The enjoyment and the fulfillment of a life worth living. Amusée wine sommelier extraordinaire Leslee Miller asked if I would partner with her to create yoga classes inspired by qualities of specific wines. At first I thought, Hmmm That will be difficult, but my curiousity of how these two forces could collide for the good of our waist bands made me take on the challenge. I saw first hand how the power of yoga, paired with wines and and comradery could change a person’s disposition. In this installment of our #wineandwellness series we are in the mood for love. Not just because it’s near Valentine's day… Ok.. Maybe that Had a lil’ influence. Yoga taught by the amazing Jess Rosenberg. I will provide the soundtrack on the 1’s and 2’s (djing for those who are not from the street) Leslee will present wines to pair for specific dates. If you are on a first date, rekindle date, to the next level date, or a friend/ family zone date, there will be a wine for you. Our friends at Sage Healthstyle will be giving us some “sage” advice on love and companionship. Create catering will keep our palates pampered with delicious treats. So what the F#$K is #wineandwellness?! A chance for us to take some time out of our chaotic schedules with the ones we love, or like a lil’ bit, to enjoy moving our bodies, drinking wines to move our spirits, listening to music to sooth our souls and connection to fill the heart til your cup runneth over.
A Note from the Wine Side
Greetings! I'm Leslee Miller, Omaur's wine half for the upcoming #wineandwellness retreat at Create Catering on Feb 11th.
Not only is Omaur spot ON with his descript of our event, but also of the benefits as to coming to this extravagant event.
First, if you have never seen or tried 'partner yoga' then THIS is going to be your new addition, I swear. Not only is it fun, but super engaging. Fun for all involved. Secondly, if you've never paired wine to yoga or better yet, your VDay date, uhhhh...then THIS is also going to be the best thing you'll do for yourself (at least this month)! As a veteran sommelier, my love for wine and wellness coincide on a daily basis. So you're gonna have to trust me on this, I got you covered! Not only will I teach you more about wine on the 11th, but I will also share all of my tips & tricks as to how to sip in a few more glasses WITHOUT adding the extra calories. Yep, I said it. Drink more, weigh less! Possible? You betcha.
So if you're even the least bit excited about any one of these ideas, then yep -- you need to get yo booty movin' on buying yourself & another a ticket for our #wineandwellness!
See you there, Leslee
