When it’s time for a break from the bustle of the holiday season, few things beat a yoga session and a good glass of wine. Hotel Casa 425 and Claremont Yoga are happy to provide this antidote to seasonal overload when they present Vino & Vinyasa, an afternoon of stress relief and relaxation. The event takes place Sunday, Dec. 16 in the hotel’s Casa Room.
The complimentary, hour-long yoga session led by Nicole Schwander Riel, co-owner of Claremont Yoga and lululemon ambassador, will start at 3:30 p.m. Vinyasa, also called flow yoga, is a style that employs synchronized postures and breathing techniques at a faster pace, thus providing aerobic benefits in addition to the increased flexibility, better posture, and stress reduction commonly associated with traditional forms of yoga.
From 4 to 7 p.m., enjoy Happy Relaxation Hour in the Hotel Casa 425 Lounge, with select glasses of wine starting at just $5.
Participants should bring a yoga mat and arrive 15 minutes prior to class start time, as spots are on a first-come, first-served basis. The hotel is also collecting non-perishable food items to feed the hungry, and would appreciate donations. For more information, visit www.casa425.com.
Hotel Casa 425 is located in downtown Claremont at 425 W. First Street, in historic Claremont Village. The lounge offers a casually sophisticated venue for mingling with friends, along with signature drinks, an extensive wine and beer list and gourmet small plates. Indoor seating is available, or relax in the hotel’s central courtyard, which feels more like an outdoor living room with its canopy of trees, lounge furniture, fountains, and glass fire pits.
