Happy summer! I have some exciting updates for my favorite season that I wanted to share…
Roof Top Pool Yoga at the Colonnade Hotel in Boston
First, I’m beyond thrilled to announce a new partnership with the Colonnade Hotel in the Back Bay because it means I get to offer a one-of-kind experience to Boston yogis this summer. Get this… You’re invited to a special WEEKLY yoga class on the hotel’s luxurious roof top pool deck, which will be OPEN TO THE PUBLIC and affordable ($15). I’m not really sure what to say beyond the fact that it will be off-the-hook. What a way to anchor your week (classes take place each Wednesday morning, 7-8 AM, beginning on June 25) with an urban retreat experience– in the sunshine, above the bustle of the city, with the option to change into your work attire in an authentic Superhero phone booth or stay and chillax by the pool. (OK, OK, so I got a little carried away with the phone booth… but the rest of your summer yoga dream isn’t too good to be true; it’s 100% reality). SEE YOU THERE! It goes without saying that this experience will sell out, so grab your spot in the sunshine STAT.
Yoga + Foam Roller = My New Runner’s World Video!
My latest yoga video on Runner’s World came out yesterday, and I think you’re really going to dig it. It’s a sequence that I created over the winter while training for the Boston Marathon and represents the vibe that my signature Om Athlete classes have at Equinox. Let me know what you think!
Speaking at the Boston Magazine Wellness Retreat, Ritz Carlton, Boston
I’m reconnecting to my Boston magazine roots (I worked in marketing at the publication for several years), this time in a very different capacity by speaking at tomorrow’s Wellness Retreat. Beloved Boston news gal Bianca de la Garza will open the program, and body language expert, Janine Driver, who’s read the non-verbal cues of Lance Armstrong on the talk show circuit and offers helpful advice for dating, job interviews, and more by harnessing the power of body language gives the keynote. My session is a riff on my latest Boston Center for Adult Education course: Summer Detox without the Diet. To those of you who attended the BCAE class last week: THANK YOU! I loved it beyond words. You all added such wisdom and mindfulness, and I know we all felt lighter after our time together.
Teaching at the Nantucket Yoga Festival, July 11-13
Last but not least, I’m teaching at the Nantucket Yoga Festival, along with talents such as Gabrielle Bernstein (you may know her as the Spirit Junkie), NYC yoga star, Raghunath, Boston heavy hitters David Vendetti, Todd Skoglund, and Larisa Forman, and 95-year-old living yoga legend, Tao Porchon-Lynch, among many others. Do NOT miss the boat (or small plane) on this one: nantucketyogafestival.com.
