Yeah Dave), who is known for his yoga-and-chocolate and yoga-and-wine classes, has teamed up with Joy Pierson, co-owner of organic vegan restaurant Candle 79, for the event.
"Seeing what a piece of chocolate or a sip of wine can do in a post yoga state of mind, one can only imagine the power of a delicious meal experienced in an intensely present moment," said Romanelli in a statement.
Yoga for Foodies, which takes place takes place January 22 at Exhale (980 Madison Avenue), starts with a one-hour Vinyasa class with music given by Romanelli, followed by a talk by Pierson on sustainability, eco-friendly food practices, and local farming.
