Wine Country Experiences | Vineyard Yoga: A Meditation of Movement

Blog, Event Planning Advice / 04.23.20172 comments

As a third generation Santa Barbaran and one whose business has largely been centered in wine country, I am always trying to stay aware of unique experiences for my clients and their guests when they visit my hometown.  Vineyard Yoga SYV (Santa Ynez Valley) is an experience that you simply won’t get at any yoga studio and if you come to Santa Barbara and /or its wine country (The Santa Ynez Valley), this is a must.

Founded by Certified Yoga Instructor Cori Crawford Lassahn, Vineyard Yoga SYV offers guests a relaxing setting at some of Santa Barbara wine country’s most beautiful wineries surrounded by vineyards and panoramic views.

When Britain Joins Miss USA in Santa Barbara’s Wine Country: A Lincourt Winery Wedding Story

It is also located in the heart of the Santa Ynez Valley and has convenient access to nearby bed and breakfasts, inns and more.

Ben and Shandi chose to keep things streamlined and not do any decor that would conflict with the already-gorgeous natural backdrop at Lincourt.  They put their priorities into what mattered most:

There are those moments in life when you truly realize that the pretense of what you are doing on the surface has actually little to nothing to do with the “real” moment you are supposed to be experiencing.  Such was last night at Trattoria Grappolo‘s in Santa Ynez, in the heart of Santa Barbara’s wine country.

The invitation said simply to come for
