The concept was born in 2016 during a transformative year for Owners Victoria Ngo Border and Patrick Border. Victoria Ngo Border tells What Now San Diego everything was kickstarted that year: they got married, together they came up with the concept of Vinya, she left the corporate world, they completed a wine training course, and their yoga teacher training.  

As regular yoga practitioners themselves, the Border’s would often find themselves looking for a place to socialize after a yoga class. “We decided to combine the two things we absolutely loved and felt passionate about,” shares Border.

For San Diegans, we’ve seen special events and wine mixers held in yoga studios before. However, Vinya intends to be the first permanent space to enjoy both, on a daily basis, without being event-based. 

“We still want to practice safely, and encourage the practice of yoga to come first, then you can enjoy wine,” explains Border. Part of the 6,000 square foot space will operate as an active yoga studio, holding up to six classes per day. We can expect a mix of styles and levels, from Vinyasa to slow-flow and Yin, plus the potential for a weekly family-friendly playtime class. Class offerings will be daily at various times.

On the tasting room side, Vinya will offer flights, wines by-the-glass, and bottles. They plan on highlighting natural wines, along with including old world wines and the selection will vary. Craft beer fans, they won’t leave you out of the fun. They have ten taps they intend to fill with local brews. 

For food Vinya will serve small bites, cheese plates, salads, and even breakfast options for morning yogis. Border explains as, “Simple eats that pair well with wine.” Their sample menu is posted online but is subject to change. In their shop, you’ll be able to grab wine, yoga merchandise, and gifts. 

Border intends for Vinya to be a gathering place to practice together and socialize. “A whole community gets built around a studio. We want to be that place for people,” says Border. You can get involved now by checking out their Vinyayaya and supporting their opening with a purchase of a class pack, membership, or exclusive experience like Yoga Brunch or Date Night package. Supporters receive greater deals and perks with the purchase of a Class Membership with the Wine Club. Wine Club Members will be gifted with two bottles per month and can partake in monthly pick-up events. 

Vinya is expected to open in Spring 2022, working through any pandemic-related delays as necessary. Follow their Instagram as they update regularly, and visit their Website for pre-opening deals.
