simple_img_1They say that a glass of red wine a day is good for you. What if you throw in a yoga class or Zumba class before that glass of wine? That’s gotta be great for you! Introducing: Stretch, Shake & Sip!

Our friends at Pillitteri have created a wonderful package along with Hotel Yoga & Fitness to bring you alternating yoga and Zumba classes each Sunday at 9:00am throughout the rest of March.  For only $15/class, you can get some exercise and partake in a guided wine tasting.

Zumba and yoga are both great workouts. Zumba is more upbeat and will give you a good cardio work out; while yoga will help you relax and leave your body feeling wonderful afterward. Don’t worry if you have never done a class like this before, go in and have fun and remember that there is a delicious glass of wine waiting for you at the end!yoga
