Winemaker & Yoga Instructor Nikki Auger

Nikki, our acclaimed winemaker, Reiki Master, and RYT200 yoga instructor, serves populations in and around Northeaster CT. Nikki feels the practice of winemaking and the practice of yoga go hand in hand. Engagement of all 5 senses, embracing the imperfect and being focused on the present moment are principles equally applied to winemaking and practicing yoga. For the past 7 years, Nikki has been creating new and innovative wines here at Taylor Brooke, taking inspiration from our local environment. The stress of farming and small business ownership had Nikki reaching for the calming and inner strengthening tools of meditation and yoga. Now Nikki is bringing her talent as a yoga instructor and winemaker to our guests. Yoga class with Nikki will include meditation, visualization and a gentle all-levels flow. Check out the class schedule and sign up below.

Spring Yoga Series

Join our winemaker Nikki for a one hour, all levels gentle yoga flow from 11am-12pm. The practice will follow the unfolding of spring in the vineyard, starting in winter dormancy and going until bud break. As such, we will start the series practicing on our heated, covered pavilion, which transitions into a yoga studio for Saturday morning yoga classes. Towards the end of the series, when the grass comes alive and the vineyard turns green again, yoga classes, weather permitting, will begin to move outside under the big tree in the vineyard as we reconnect our roots to the earth and celebrate new growth and the beginning of a new season.

Class is $25 which includes a post-class glass of wine or pint of beer from the brewery. If you are interested in a private wine tasting with Nikki, stick around after class and for an extra $15 you can join her Spring Crush Deck Series tasting and tour.
