Hawaii Food & Wine Festival's Apres Yoga: After Savasana, There is Sake Event

On Saturday morning, pouring rain did not stop several dozen women and men from attending the Hawaii Food & Wine Festival's TY KU Presents Apres Yoga: After Savasana, There is Sake Event.

Originally to have taken place on the beach outside of Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort, the event was moved indoors after attendees signed in and were given a yoga mat, towel, and water.

Although I never took a yoga class and have only done yoga videos, I was excited to attend the session led by CorePower Yoga Hawaii instructor, Juri Edwards.

Center: Juri Edwards, Graham Elliot
A nice mix of yoga newbies, including Famed Chef Graham Elliot (who joked how his yoga "v-card" was being taken away"), as well as yoga enthusiasts, filled the lobby of the Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort.

It was nice to see Juri so excited not only about being able to conduct the class for the inaugural yoga + sake event, but also to share her passion about yoga, and the benefits yoga can have on one's life.

After an hour's worth of Child's Poses, Mountain Poses, Downward Dogs, and Warrior Poses, while focusing on my breathing, posture, and my body in general, I worked up a good sweat, and I was proud of myself for getting through the entire class (with just a couple of "breaks to take media photos").  I thought it was a great class, and I was ready to unwind with snacks and TY KU Sake Cocktails.

The Apres Yoga: After Savasana, There is Sake Event was a great way to get your zen on and indulge without the guilt!

Thank you to the Hawaii Food & Wine Festival for hosting my admission.
