The Shops At Columbus Circle Kicks Off 360 Wellness Series
Its no secret that wellness is booming. At the end of the day, people want to look good, feel good and always perform at their best. Living in a fast-paced city like New York can at times involve stress, pressure, eating on the go, and not leaving enough time for self -care. Our favorite shopping and dining destination, The Shops At Columbus Circle in the Time Warner Center is alleviating some of our anxiety this summer by introducing a ‘360 Wellness’ series.
For four months, the metropolitan shopping mall will offer free programs focusing on four areas of wellness: Movement Matters, Clean Beauty, Mindful Eating and Conscious Fashion. June 6 marked the kickoff of Movement Matters, an event that involved sunrise yoga in front of The Shops at Columbus Circle led by Equinox Fitness Club instructor Bee Bosnack. Participants practiced Sun Salutations while DJ Brendan Fallis dropped beats that were carefully crafted so the tunes synced with the pacing of the teacher and the flow. Guests were treated to lite bites from Juice Press and Bouchon Bakery & Café. Midday involved mediation with MNDFL on the second floor, followed by a ballet-inspired Barre Class with the American Ballet Theatre’s Craig Salstein. The day wrapped up in the evening with a panel discussion with MNDFL CEO, Ellie Burrows, ABT’s Choreographer, Kate Lydon, among others.
July 11 will highlight Clean Beauty, featuring beauty bar pop-ups and advice from leading glam brands including MAC, Sephora, and Jo Malone London. August will spotlight Mindful Eating. On August 8, a conversation will take place at Whole Foods with author, Cornell Thomas, Juice Press owner Marcus Antebi and Gotham Greens. Additional events in August include a Dirty Detox Cleanse promo at Juice Press, and La Maison du Chocolat’s launch of their Wellness Collection created without the use of animal products.
The Restaurant and Bar Collection at The Shops at Columbus Circle will also highlight healthy food options on Mondays throughout the month of August. The 360 Wellness series wraps up September 12- 30 with Conscious Fashion. BF+ DA and Pratt will showcase apparel brands at BF+ DA incorporating sustainable business models and ethical practices.
