Mirkovic’s enthusiasm for instructing yoga outdoors comes across easily, and she often suggested that while in the pose, we feel the sun on our skin and breathe in the fresh scent of the sea. Add to this the sound of the waves and the children playing nearby, and outdoor yoga becomes an experience which delights the senses. She is quite right when she notes, “There is nothing quite like the feeling of that orange glow on your skin as you say goodbye to your week.”
With 40 wines from the Constantia Valley laid out in one strip of convenience, visitors were able to top up on a different taste of wine whenever they found that their complimentary wine glasses had run dry. It’s a good thing that the Constantia daddies are rich and the mommies good looking, as the R 150 ticket… only allowed for a sample tasting of 5-10 wines. But let’s not look at the glass as ¾ empty. This is the only event of the year where one can taste and compare the entire Constantia valley under one tasting tent, and that in itself is a treat.
