caroline brethenoux gyrokinesis living room

Where: Living Room SoHo, 552-556 Broadway, Suite #4 (3rd Fl.), New York, NY

Gyrokinesis = gyro breathing?

Woah dudes. There are very rare moments when I feel like I have completely left Manhattan and entered an alternate reality. This is what happened when I went to the Living Room in SoHo. I guess that's what they were going for though. Caroline's picture makes her seem really severe but she was seriously the nicest person ever. The class though, was a very, errr, interesting experience....  [More]

jay plansky evf performance workout rating

Where: EVF Performance , 1623 York Avenue , New york, NY

I got shat on. Literally. And I LOVED IT.

It's almost hard to believe that once upon a time, I actually had a pair - and did Crossfit. Now, the thought of even entering a "box" makes me pluck my anxiety feathers until I've become a bald eagle. So much muscle. So much metal. So many blisters. But, EVF is now offering bootcamp, non-WOD classes. And bingo - they are on ClassPass! Once I managed to get my big girl pants on, I realized I might be missing out on some pretty snazzy sweat sessions. Verdict? I was tots missing out. Crossfitter or not, come and get your EVF360 jam because it is freakin' delish....  [More]

panzanella salad recipes

There is almost nothing that takes better advantage of summer garden vegetables and farmer's market goodies than a well-executed panzanella salad. The panzanella is traditionally a bread salad with tomato, red pepper, olives, capers, basil, and vinaigrette. While the original is an absolute favorite, these five recipes are examples of how a little unconventional twist can reap big rewards (in your mouth). Eat up!...  [More]

christina ilisije pure yoga figure workout

Where: Pure Yoga, 204 West 77th Street, New York, NY

Funny girl. Sick thigh burn.

I want to look like a ballerina. My mom was one, and she always flaunts her flamingo legs in front of me while I pound around on my rhinos. Anyway. My ballerina mission and I took this ass down to Pure West, my favorite new joint for a totally sick barre fix. I didn't walk out the next new Black Swan, but Christina's class was exactly what I wanted....  [More]
