Breathe Events; The Ultimate Outdoor Yoga Experience

  When I read about the Breathe Events ‘Breathe In the Vines’ shindig: I saw outdoor yoga: “Okaaaaay…..” I saw Fox Creek Winery: “I’m listening…..” I saw From Humble Grounds Coffee: “Tell me more…..” I saw Picnic (with wine): “SOLD!”   With a slightly more sporting and weight lifting background; I’m about as flexible as a concrete slab.
