Springtime Yoga at Stinson Vineyards, April 30th

Treat yourself to a morning in central Virginia’s sunny spring air and join us for All Levels Yoga at Stinson Vineyards, Saturday, April 30th from 10:00 to 11:15am. 

Since Saturday 4/30 is also Foxfields, we recommend that you take I-64 to Exit 107 for Crozet/Yancy Mills to avoid Foxfield traffic on Garth Road.

Stinson Vineyards in White Hall has beautiful views of the mountains and critically acclaimed wines. The yoga class will be held on a flat patch of grass in the vineyard, and will be appropriate for beginners or more experienced students who enjoy a thoughtful, meditative pace. This event is a fundraiser for Common Ground, and supports our organization’s mission to make health and wellness affordable and accessible in Charlottesville.

Tickets for the fundraiser are $25, and include the class and a wine tasting which will follow directly after.

Pre-registration required and available from here. This event is capped at 20 participants.

This class is perfect for anyone with a desire to stretch in the autumn sun, and relax afterwards with some fine sips in an adirondack chair. Please bring your own mat.

In the event of rain, the class will be held inside the winery.

Having always been an avid athlete with a meditation practice, Julia has been most challenged by practicing yoga. She considers her yoga mat a “magic carpet” that literally carries a person through physical, emotional and spiritual transformations, healing from the past, strengthening mindfulness and attention to the here and now, and opening space for the future. A certified health coach, Julia is a graduate of The Institute for Integrative Nutrition as well as a graduate of Pete Guinosso’s 200 hour teacher training in San Francisco. She has also completed several Vipassana meditation courses as taught by S.N. Goenka that influence her yoga teaching.
