Exciting opportunity for my Chicago-area yoga and cheese lovers! More info and tickets here.
Cheese and yoga is maybe not the most obvious pairing—but hear us out.
The best way to enjoy a delicious cheese plate is by slowing down first. To catch all the nuances, all of the scents and flavors, you need to open your senses and take deep breaths.
Join Forrest Yoga teachers Anna Schabold and Sarah Steimer for a yoga class focused on turning on your mindfulness with deep breathing and relaxation. We will follow the practice with Virtue Cider and a tasting of five artisan cheese with Chicago’s cheese preacher, Erika Kubick of Cheese Sex Death. Wear stretchy pants, bring a mat, and come hungry.
Regular-priced tickets: $45
