On a cold winter day, 10 NYC bloggers got together for a fun morning at one of my fav fitness studios, Studio Anya. This isn’t the first time I’ve held a meetup at Studio Anya and honestly if you’ve seen the place you’d understand why. With it’s warm, spacious loft embellished with hanging plants, colorful silks and large windows that allow copious amounts of light to come pouring in — it’s truly a hidden gem.
When my friend Ali and I decided to start a series of Blogger Meetups this year, I knew that this was the first studio I wanted to invite people to. Despite the last minute planning, we were able to find a few very generous brands who were kind enough to sponsor our Galentine’s Day event (yes, this post is a bit overdue).
Once the bloggers arrived the fun commenced! Nicole led us through a “flying fitness” class full of inversions, flips and stretches, all of which encompassed the silk hammocks. If you’ve never tried aerial yoga before, I highly recommend it (even wrote a nifty little post about the benefits HERE.) It’s such a fun way to shake up your routine and challenge yourself in a new way.
After the class was over we stuck around for half an hour to do what bloggers do best, take photos! Major props to NYCPretty’s husband for taking all of these shots.
Overall, it was a lovely morning to connect and play with some truly inspirational women. This certainly won’t be the last event Ali and I host this year. In fact, we have some plans brewing for a much larger meetup at Circuit of Change towards the end of April!

Can’t wait to share more with you all!
With love and light,
