A wellness street fair grows in Brooklyn


Brooklyn's finest—we mean the borough's wellness experts. Meet them this Saturday at NewUnderstanding LIVE.
The scene last year at Alive & Well

Reiki practitioner, and former BBC correspondent, Heather Alexander is a walking Zagat’s guide of wellness. The holistic-minded Brooklynite wanted to come up with a way to share her knowledge and network of acupuncturists and nutritionists, yogis and fitness gurus.

The result is NewUnderstanding LIVE, a wellness street fair in Park Slope where collard wraps replace meat-filled hoagies.

Check it out this Saturday from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm. More than 30 different practitioners will share their knowledge on diverse topics ranging from ear acupuncture to structural integration to Forrest yoga. There’s even children’s programming, including creative dance, martial arts, and drumming.

Last year the fair (previously called Alive & Well) was held indoors and was a huge hit among locals. Alexander hopes this year’s al fresco event will become even more of a destination; she’s  added live music at 2:00. “We are really excited about this year’s line up, there are some fantastic speakers and many free demos going on throughout the day,” says Alexander.  “It’s a great chance to speak to local practitioners and get a genuine overview of holistic healthcare, what that actually means and how it can work for you.”

NewUnderstanding LIVE. May 14, 10:00 a.m–5:00 p.m., at Triomph Fitness, 540 President St., between 3rd and 4th Aves., Gowanus, www.newunderstanding.co
