Are you so busy struggling to make ends meet that you don’t have time to pamper yourself, prepare creative healthy meals, or come to your mat for a daily yoga or meditation practice? Would you love to treat yourself to a mini-vacation and a dedicated block of time to get away from it all, work with a life coach, or kick-start a regular yoga practice? Do you dream of preparing beautiful plant-based juices, smoothies and meals with raw and vegan chefs who can teach you how to create delicious, nutritious meals to nourish your body from the inside out? If you feel like wellness and yoga retreats are a fantasy that would require cash to rain from the sky, you may be in luck!

Yoga can happen from the outside in or the inside out. You can look at a pose or picture of someone else or the person next to you in class and try and move and pose and make your body in the same shape, which has nothing to do with you and will create tension and struggle in your body and mind. Or you can move from the inside out, finding your own way into the movements, allowing your body to move with ease, cultivating a strong, healthy body and calm capable mind. Moving from the inside out you’ll be able to do much more with less effort. Have fun, stay easy and enjoy the ride!

NYC Fitness Event Saturday September 22nd - Kiss Breast Cancer Goodbye during New York Health & Racquet’s Fitfest 2012 for Breast Cancer Research
MARK YOUR CALENDAR AND FREE YOUR DAY - This fantastic event is open to members and non-members of NYHRC. Each class is a $20 donation to the Glam-a-thon Foundation, a non-profit organization providing women battling breast cancer and their families with support and funding for mammograms and diagnostic testing. It’s going to be a great day jam packed with great classes, great raffle items, and load of giveaways, and gift bags!
My favorite NYHRC instructors are going to be teaching —-
Matt Wilpers for spinning — He has SO MUCH energy, his spin classes are dynamite! His awesome playlist will keep you going strong for the hour and you will come out of there cycling harder and stronger than you thought ever would be possible.
Leo Wright and Celine Desgranges for sculpting and bootcamp – They give you tough love, they do not let you cheat your workout and they will push you. YOU WILL BE SORE! It is more than worth it.
Ash Aviles for Yoga — he’s got a gift for making you feel brand new, deeply at peace and rejuvenated after every class.
Here’s your chance to work out with the instructors I speak very highly of in my blog, and donate your efforts towards a really, really good cause.
