#TechStyleNYC: Where Fitness, Fashion + Technology Connect
I love when two of my favorite things technology and style meet for New York Fashion Week with the infamous TechStyleNYC lounge—add some fitness in that mix and I am in heaven!
A group of influencers were invited to take part in a wellness session that included a Yoga session and a Cardio/toning no equipment workout from celebrity trainer Joel Harper.
When I arrived (half frozen from the bitter, bitter cold) I was immediately warmed up by happiness to see one of my favorite girls Nadia–you may remember her as one of the A Healthy U Conference speakers. There were also lots of other folks that I knew and got to know for the very first time.
Before we got started however we were gifted with a bag full of fitness wear from Lysse which included a full outfit from head to toe.The owner of NamaSTAYtowels also gifted us with a towel that covers the entire mat. How genius is that??? I love it because you get really sweaty in hot yoga and its nice to have a plush towel underneath your feet! And especially nice when you are in child’s pose and Shavasana.
As we began our Yoga session presented by PRIV I was a bit apprehensive as I don’t do dry yoga. As a person that only does Hot Yoga I was afraid I wouldn’t be as limber as I normally am in a 100 degree plus room.
Turns out “dry yoga” isn’t so bad after all! I got a really great workout while stretching out all my muscles for Sunday’s race. It was short lived though, celebrity trainer Joel Harper came in and started kicked our tail right away! He had us doing so many toning moves I was begging for mercy by the time he was done! Every single move was done without equipment. It hurt so good!
Afterwards we were treated to the most delicious frozen pops! It was the perfect sweet fix with the Paleo Passion Pops and Dosha Pops. I tried the strawberry and there were flax seed in it. Delish!
As a bonus we were also treated to Love Winter boots! Mine were pink–of course–and perfect for this crazy cold winter!
Thank you so much to the TechStyleNYC crew, it truly was a great way to spend my taper week!
