Yuletide Yoga Workshops

Despite being the most wonderful time of the year, the holidays can also be rather stressful. With cookies to bake, trees to trim, gifts to purchase and wrap, friends and family to visit, and much more, it can sometimes seem as though there aren’t enough hours in the day! This holiday season, consider taking a break to relax and recentre by attending a festive yoga class. Besides getting some much needed exercise, you should also feel more mindful, tranquil, and composed after participating in one of the classes I’ve highlighted below.

YogiWino Gets Festive – Ottawa, ON

YogiWino Gets Festive

YogiWino’s event this Thursday is part yoga class, part holiday market, part party! After an hour-long yoga session, you can sip on local wine and enjoy appetizers while you peruse the wares from some of YogiWino’s favourite Ottawa vendors and artists—all while listening to live Christmas music. They will also be accepting donations for the local food bank, and anyone who makes a donation will be entered into a drawing for a prize from Busy Bees Home Organizing.

Yoga… and goats? Yep, that’s right! De-stress by doing yoga on a farm while baby goats cozy up next to you, climb on your back, or simply make you smile.
