2018 wine and yoga events

I am once again partnering with Hip Chicks do Wine in 2018 for more wine and yoga events.

Wine and yoga events at Hip Chicks are so much fun! If you came last year, you know how great they are, and you likely want to come again. And if you didn’t have a chance to come and want to, book the below dates now!

You don’t have to be hip or a chick to come and have fun. Guaranteed!

The dates are Saturday, April 14 and Saturday, May 12. (Summer dates are Saturday, June 23; Saturday, July 21; and Saturday, August 18.)

Registration is from 1:45-2 p.m.; yoga from 2-3 p.m.; and wine  and sangria tasting from 3-4 p.m.

This year Hip Chicks is also throwing in a sangria tasting in with our four wines.

Advanced tickets are $18 ($20 at the door).

Go to hipchicksdowine.com to purchase your tickets ahead of time to ensure your spot. (There is limited space.) If you click the linked dates above that … Continue reading

Bracket winners

The yoga theme champion is … the psoas (pronounced so-as)!

I am really surprised by this winner. I thought for sure it would be the neck.

I had 120 entries for Ann’s March Madness Repeats Final Four brackets. As I mentioned above, the psoas was the yoga theme champion (which means it will be a repeated sequence during May Muscle Goodness.) The neck and feet tied for … Continue reading

Wine and yoga event

I am super excited to announce that I am partnering with Hip Chicks Do Wine for two wine and yoga events.

Don’t worry, we’ll practice yoga first and enjoy wine after. Yoga before wine … you’ll be fine.

There are two wine and yoga events planned for Saturdays, April 8 and May 6, from 1:45-4 p.m.

Cost is $15 in advance/$18 at the door.

Registration is from 1:45-2 p.m.; yoga from 2-3 p.m.; and from 3-4 p.m. we’ll taste four wines from Hip Chicks Do Wine.

All levels of yoga are supported and welcome.

Please wear comfortable clothing and bring a yoga mat.

I anticipate these events selling out, so it would be a good idea to buy your tickets ahead of time.

You can purchase your tickets on Hip Chick’s website.

If you have any questions, feel free to e-mail winegoddess@hipchicksdowine.com or ann@gofitgirl.com.
