For any fellow New Yorkers reading our blog, I have an exciting announcement: there’s a free health and wellness festival this Saturday, May 14 in Gowanus/Park Slope area of Brooklyn. The event is hosted by NewUnderstanding, formerly known as Alive&Well in Brooklyn, and will feature tons of free and healthy fun for the whole family.
For kids, there will be yoga, drumming circles, martial arts and manicures. For adults there will be free sample treatments of ear acupuncture, Alexander Technique, Structural Integration, Postural Analysis and Nutrition Counseling. There will also be giveaways and goodie bags with healthy treats and discounts. A full schedule of classes, including Pilates, Forrest yoga and Qi Gong, and seminars covering topics such as Simple Steps to Better Sleep, Living Gluten Free and Relief from Seasonal Allergies with Acupuncture and Herbs. There will also be lots of yummy food from The V Spot, a local vegan restaurant.
This is the second fair of its kind. I had the pleasure of attending the first fair back in September, which proved to be a great event and a big success. I particularly loved the postural analysis, and also enjoyed a delicious vegan lettuce wrap. The event is a great way to find out about some of the holistic health practitioners in your area, discover some new ways and places to work out and to sample some delicious food.
The free Wellness Festival will be held on Saturday, May 14th from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM. It will be located at Triomph Fitness at 540 President Street and outside on President Street between 3rd and 4th avenue, weather permitting.
