Admit it. You made a resolution back in January to exercise more. To eat healthier. To try kale.
And then life came along. Before you knew it, it was October, and all of your health and wellness goals were gone, along with the warm weather.
Sisterhued kicked off the season with a renewal of health, wellness and self-care by helping women Fall Into Fitness!
Guests got started on a journey to the best, healthiest version of themselves with our interactive dance workshop and panel discussion at Fit 4 Dance in Brooklyn, NY.
To help us all finish 2016 strong and jump start our health, wellness, nutrition and self care goals for next year, we snacked on a brunch of healthy goodies, including GoGo Squeez yogurt, Mama Chia bars and granola, kale crackers and chips from Raw Food Central, 22 Days Nutrition bars, and seasonal cupcakes by Out of the Box Creations. Refreshing organic beverages from Suja Juice and bottled artesian water from Fiji kept us hydrated throughout the day.
Over kale chips, yogurt, and snack bars, women got real about their health and fitness goals for the season.
Did you know that 43.8 million women are currently living with some form of cardiovascular disease? Heart disease, diabetes, and hypertension affect communities of color at higher rates than any other ethnic group. Because Sisterhued is committed to improving the lives of women by educating them on ways to improve their lifestyle and overall health, our panel discussion featured tips for improving health and wellness.
Accupuncturist Damien McLeod, dance enthusiast and Fit 4 Dance owner Laci Chisolm, Holistic Healthy Living Coach Golda Smith, and Sisterhued’s own O Magazine cover model, Shaniqua Garvin, shared inspiration for living a healthier, more holistic lifestyle.
With a fluid mix of North African Belly dance and Afro- Caribbean movement, Fit 4 Dance’s Maya Louisa got everyone moving. Her hip shaking belly dancehall class finished off our full day of health, wellness, and nutrition–and was the highlight of our event coverage on Brooklyn’s News 12 (Click here to see Sisterhued on TV)!
Our guests went home with products from Arnicare gel from Boiron, Amped Hydrate electrolyte powder, Shakelee meal replacement bars, vegan cookies from Pipernilli, chocolate bars from22 Days Nutrition, Mama Chia snacks, and Fiji water.
