One of our favorite things about working out is getting to try new things. We don’t always love every fitness class, but variety definitely helps keep us coming back for more.

That’s definitely what Annie Mello was thinking when she and her husband moved here from L.A. to open their second gym and decided to include a wide variety of fitness options.

And if that wasn’t enough to keep her active, she is also a mom to three-and-a-half year old twins. Ashley Thompson recently sat down with her Across the Table at JJ’s Wine, Spirits and Cigars to learn how she balances it all, and hopefully get a few tips.

At JJ’s they like to say they provide an enhanced adult beverage experience and we think that’s just perfect to sum up the great food and drink and the great people you’ll run into at JJ’s Wine, Spirits and Cigars.

JJ’s Wine, Spirits & Cigars is pleased to be hosting a CPM Community event tonight (July 13). It’s Wine Down Yoga under the tent at JJ’s.

The sun salutations and downward dogs begin at 6 o’clock, so come early and grab a spot under the big tent in the parking lot at 5:45 PM.

The 30-minute Vinyasa Yoga session starts at six and you’re invited to find your zen and continue that good feeling with a glass of wine.
