In the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, many western North Dakotans are eager to leave their homes and enjoy the warm summer months. With Fluffy Fields in Dickinson relaunching their outdoor winery yoga classes for the summer, residents will get to exercise in the summer sun.

Fluffy Fields, mainly known for its delicious wine and warm, welcoming atmosphere, brings in BodyLift Fitness, led by instructor Heather Dressler, during various days of the week from 6-7 p.m. The one-hour session allows for guests to stretch their stress away in a guided yoga session and slowly drift into total relaxation while enjoying the freshness of the vineyard.

Following the one-hour session, guests are able to relax by enjoying a warm meal and sipping on a refreshing glass of wine. Participants can also drink a glass of wine while in the vineyard in their yoga session.

“It feels really good to see people having fun, relaxing, and enjoying themselves at Fluffy Fields,” Deb Kinzel, the owner of Fluffy Fields, said. “They really like it out here, they like how it’s relaxed, they really like to be outside, they truly enjoy (Dressler) and her classes, they’re really good. Then to wind down they like to drink a nice glass of fine and have a bite to eat; it’s an awesome experience.”

Participants of the class are also able to have one friend accompany them to their visit to Fluffy Field and the yoga session, allowing for individuals to enjoy themselves with their friends while also making new ones. As the summer goes on, local residents love being able to spend the afternoon at Fluffy Fields.


To add even more entertainment and relaxation to the session, the yoga session may also include live music, such as from musician Phil Espinoza, who typically plays soft, acoustic music to relax to.

There are a variety of membership options for those interested in the BodyLift Fitness classes. The prices start at $15 for a single class, while an unlimited membership is $99, which will automatically renew after a minimum of three months.
