Experimenting with different wine pairings is fun, but who knew it could be really beneficial for your health too? No, I'm not talking about antioxidants; I'm referring to Vino-yasa! This innovative approach to pairing supplements your favourite reds and white with yoga stretches. It could just be the next big thing in health, taking exercise to a whole new level of bliss.

"Together they tour the nation—and recently offered a sold-out 'experience' in Umbria, Italy with their own house blend of swirl and shivasana," Vital Juice Daily said.

They also host workshops in cities in Southern California, upstate New York and even in Vancouver, Canada. Want more? Check out the NY Times article.
