Learn to bake challah bread with pastry chef, Emily Wilhelm. While the bread rises, relax your kneading muscles with yoga lead by Jackie Powell!
What’s included: start to finish bread making lessons & a 90-minute all-levels yoga class. While your bread bakes enjoy a relaxing tea time & tour of Swann House. Leave the afternoon with two loaves of bread and a rejuvenated spirit!
Swann House B&B makes its home in a circa 1883 mansion enveloping you in the grandeur of a bygone era. Your baking and yoga experience will take place among the crystal chandeliers, elaborately carved fireplaces and original plaster moldings that reflect just a portion of the nineteenth century craftsmanship that can be seen throughout the award-winning Inn.
Having both gotten their starts separately in Costa Rica, Jackie and Emily met at Swann House where they are both currently Innkeepers. Jackie is a certified RYT Power Vinyasa Yoga Teacher with experience teaching around the world and now shares yoga in various communities throughout DC. Formally the Head Baker at Woodberry Kitchen, Emily now runs the Honeysuckle Bakeshop bread CSA.
