Happy National Heart Month! Valentine's Day is not the only way to celebrate the heart this month! Join me for a fun girls night out to raise heart beats and awareness on February 16, 2017 at 7pm at Ink Block Boston. The night will start off with a unique class created by myself and Kick It by Eliza founder Eliza Shirazi. The awesome workout we have put together combines Barre inspired sculpting techniques with the high energy, heart pumping cardio benefits of Eliza's kickboxing routine. After the class there will be shopping for quality, sustainable second hand clothing from GoGarbaj, and organic fair-trade products from Organic Bath Company, and cold- pressed juice refrechsmens from Mother Juice. Proceeds from the evening will go to The American Heart and American Stroke Association. I am so excited for this event and so grateful to Eliza and all of the sponsors for helping to raise awareness about heart disease and stroke and to support the the American Heart and Stroke Association. Since having my stroke four years ago, I have been on a journey to spread the message that embracing a healthy lifestyle can significantly reduce ones risk of heart disease and stroke. I can think of no better way to celebrate heart month and continue to spread awareness then at this heart-healthy night out. Tickets are $15, and space is limited. Purchase link.Read More
