Yoga, Wine Down + Food Pairing

Saturday, May 30, 2015
2:00-4:30pm
Location: The Shipyard Lofts, Dogpatch, San Francisco, CA 


Join Kimberly Hu and Deborah Adeyanju for a Yoga, Wine Down + Food Pairing event: a sensory journey integrating mindful movement and specially selected wines and nibbles.

"Yoga is the study of balance, and balance is the aim of all living creatures..." --Rolf Gates


First, enjoy an all-levels vinyasa flow class designed to open your body and mind. Then, keep the flow going by trading your Oms for ohs and ahs during this post-yoga "wine down." 

As with yoga, good wine is about balance. And when it comes to wine and food pairing, it's a balancing act with two differing approaches: choose foods that complement the wines or those that offer a contrasting flavor profile. You be the judge as to which works best as you sample four different wines. 

The wines, one sparkling, one white, and two reds, will showcase a variety of styles and regions. They will be matched with an array of nibbles (including cheeses, fruit, and some savory selections) designed to complement each wine and stretch your palate during this tutored wine tasting and food pairing session. Can't figure out what to pair with that Pinot? Bring your questions and prepare for a sensorily stimulating session!

What's included:
• 75-minute all-levels vinyasa flow yoga class with Kim (with modifications for beginners)
• 45-minute guided wine down and food pairing led by Deborah: 4 wines plus a variety of complementary nibbles.
• Printouts of the wines sampled as well as suggested food pairings

Pricing:
$45 early bird (book by 5/16/15)
$50 regular (if booked after 5/17/15)

Space is limited and advance booking is required. You must be 21 years old to participate.  Book your space(s) using the PayPal link below:

Wine guide Deborah Adeyanju holds the WSET’s prestigious Advanced Certificate in Wines and Spirits and is a candidate for its Diploma. After working with some of the country's largest online retailers (JJ Buckley Fine Wines and Vinfolio), Deborah helped launch boutique wine consulting firm Johnston & Alves. A published writer as well as a marketing and social media expert, Deborah's clients include importer Cave to Cellar and the inaugural Oakland Wine Festival.

Kimberly Hu knows all too well the stresses and strains that a desk-bound job can impart, having worked as a graphic designer and taught yoga for more a decade. She also knows the subsequent relief that yoga can bring, on a physical as well as a mental level. Kimberly's teaching style is rooted in vinyasa flow, but also reflects her multi-faceted background in gymnastics, dance, Budokon (a system that fuses yoga with martial arts), and Garuda Method (a practice which integrates Pilates and yoga). Her classes are a dynamic balance of transitions and alignment, and are designed to explore yoga in a way that is challenging, yet still accessible and fun.
