New in Amsterdam! Wine Yoga

Some combinations are a real match made in heaven! What about the mix of yoga and wine? Stop daydreamin’, recently it became reality in Amsterdam. The ladies of Girls Who Drink had spotted this trend in the USA. They guessed it was the right time to introduce it in the Netherlands, my credits to the way they were thinking! And so, it happened…I was one of the lucky ones who was present at the very first Dutch ‘posing & pouring event’ in the brand new hotspot House of Watt – a new one for on by Food Bucket List.

Wine Yoga Event Amsterdam
According to the GWD-ladies yoga is a serious affair, but wine can make the sport enthusiasts looser and smoother. The two together makes it doubly relaxing. During the wine yoga event I was welcomed with a glass Faber bubbles. Ever heard of it? It’s a totally alcohol-free wine with 50{8b669be72a7f340f9ef2d6d852585cd40ddf0e79ccf763f3ea93c1234c3d888b} less calories than normal wines. I really liked my first sip, didn’t thought there wasn’t alcohol in it, good job. With a tipsy head exercising a downward-facing dog wasn’t going to happen. And yes, no hangover the next day!

Best of both worlds
The wine yoga class was taught by two Holistic Movement teachers: Stijn de Jongh and Dennis van Miltenburg. Professional ánd handsome yoga fanatics.. lots of girls were on cloud nine I tell you! We started with a short meditation, followed by some animal movements – wow that was tough– and a couple of simple yoga exercises with and without a wine glass so you can get your balance right. The hour went by so fast. Afterwards, there was some time to chitchat with the others and enjoy the nibbles and some alcohol-free cocktails. I could really get used to this way of doing my moves. Absolutely give it a try!

Bottoms Up!
