Yoga, Fashion, Music & WTRMLN

As much as I love Fridays, there is something about Sunday mornings that are just pure awesome!  This Sunday morning in particular I had the opportunity to partake in an event that included a yoga class, some awesome jams, shopping and my first experience with WTRMLN WTR (review below)!  How appropriate for Staying Fit and Staying Fly!?

After racing to Bandier Flatiron (thanks MTA!) I made it just in time to throw down my bag and roll out my yoga mat.  We were greeted with an infectious smile by a very California chic, zen woman Lauren Imparato who is the owner of I.AM.YOU Studio.  Ok,  before I go any further: moment of truth here people: I’m really not a fan of yoga (GASP). BUT, I do like trying new things, and I just have to say – this was a Jammin class!  Literally JAMMIN!  Joan Jett’s Bad Reputation and a version of Depeche Mode’s Personal Jesus – now this is a yoga class I can get on board with!!!  Not only was the music on point, this class was easy to follow, and great for ALL levels!  Being a yoga novice, it was nice to step into a class, receive proper corrections, and feel like this was MY class!  The philosophy of I.AM.YOU Studio is an all around physical & philosophical approach with a focus on YOU.  With a Final OM I had a whole new outlook on this modern approach to yoga!  After class there was a bit a of Q&A with the founder –  her story is inspiring and you can find out more about this rock star instructor and leader click HERE!

Now it was time for some shopping and to get my DRNK on and by drink I mean WTRMLN WTR!  Bandier|NY is a great stop for your fashionable fly fitness needs.  With the original location in Southampton, the Flatiron pop-up location has been around since Fall ’14 (online store coming soon!).  My last trip here I came back with some sweet apparel from Zara Terez, GoodhYOUman, even Under Armour ! (You’ve probably seen me sporting these on IG: @ssdancefit) Unfortunately, they did not have my size in the items I wanted this time, but I will be sure to return!  Especially for this fit belt that can hold all sorts of gadgets – T1D friends I will be sure to update you on this one once they restock!

Now with my blood sugar coasting at 135 I was game to try WTRMLN WTR.  I had read some recent articles about this new found beverage trend (similar to Coconut Water) this cold pressed juice is meant to be hydrating, all with the extra benefits of a good serving of potassium and lycopene.  Although there is no added sugar, for this pancreatically challenged lady there is a decent amount of carbs and sugar in one serving (bottle is 1.5) that for me it is just not worth it.

Stay Fit Stay Fly!
