Welcome to our weekly roundup of wellness news we’ve spotted and reported throughout the week. Our Page Six!
According to MSNBC, a growing number of burly male athletes (i.e. Tim Tebow) are now getting regular “sports pedicures,” because, they claim, they “consider it necessary in terms of foot health and reducing their risk of injury.” Sure. Sounds like dude speak for “we want pretty toes.”
On Monday, some athletes will be slipping those manicured feet into Adidas’ new kicks designed for the Boston Marathon—the Adizero Boston 3 and Adios 2. The apparel company announced this week that they’re again providing all of the official apparel for the race.
Which, by the way, will include one interesting participant—a college student who will juggle bean bags for the entire 26.2 miles. He calls himself a “joggler.”
In other interesting workout news, lots of New Yorkers are getting off the ground (and hanging upside down) this week. We checked out YogaWorks’ new AntiGravity Pilates, and Om Factory announced that they’re opening Om Factory Flight School in the Flatiron that will be the “only center in the country exclusively dedicated to AntiGravity Yoga, AcroYoga, and Aerial Arts.”
Speaking of yogis, Trudie Styler (AKA Mrs. Sting) sat down with Dr. Frank Lipman this week to talk about her views on health and the environment, and David Romanelli announced he’ll start teaching regular classes in New York at YogaVida and Exhale.
Guess who will be joining him at Exhale? None other than Isaac Pena, who will be right back where he started.
Around the country, yoga festival juggernaut Wanderlust opened its first permanent space, Wanderlust LIVE in downtown Austin, and the White House hosted “Easter Yoga” on the South Lawn (complete with bunny Trikonasanas).
Oh, and Franklin Street in Tribeca is becoming the city’s own stretch of European water-based spas, with the upcoming arrival of Aqua Studio. New bathing-suit shopping, anyone?
