M.E.T. Workshop on September 23rd.

“85% of the word EMOTION is dedicated to movement!” says MET’s founder, Marcel Daane. After taking the Movement Efficiency Training course in April, I have been looking at movement and working with my clients differently. MET’s approach is based on neuroscience.

Kim’s Class for Athleta and Zeel

As you know we taught classes for a Zeel and Athleta store-opening event.  Hopefully, you made it to Kim’s class on Saturday, despite the snow.  Here’s the glowing-review Zeel gave the class as well as helping us announce SMARTer Yoga to the world: On the last day of Zeel Week at Athleta, the weather turned unaccountably stormy. (Really, snow in October?) Yet dedicated yogis made their way to Athleta’s UWS store to enjoy a yoga session with Zeel Expert yoga instructor Kim-Lien Kendall. And did we ever. Behind Kim’s innocent demeanor lies the mind of a hardcore yoga taskmaster. Kim took Read more…
