We recap everything earth-shattering that happened in health and wellness this week: December 14–20, 2013.

HEALTHY FOOD NEWS

Whole Foods’ first Brooklyn store officially opened in Gowanus on Tuesday, December 17, with cool features like a juice bar called Juice, Etc., a tap room and restaurant, Brooklyn-made products, local charity partnerships, and green construction (i.e. repurposed bricks from Newark). Its 20,000-square-foot rooftop greenhouse, in partnership with Gotham Greens, is still under construction but will open soon.

Park Slope’s favorite local vegan restaurant Sun in Bloom announced it will open a second location, in Tribeca, on January 2. The shop will be dedicated to healthy take-out.

CELEB BUZZ

In an interview with Barbara Walters, Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence addressed Hollywood body standards and said “it should be illegal to call someone fat.”

FITNESS AND YOGA

Sharon Gannon and David Life’s famed Jivamukti Yoga is opening a yoga studio across the Hudson in Jersey City in January. The studio will add a yoga-lifestyle boutique and a JivamukTea cafe outpost in 2015.

SoulCycle will open another studio in Westchester, in Bronxville, in 2014. It’ll be next to a new wine bar, too, for post- (not pre-) spin socializing.

Parkour and dance fitness spot Bklyn Beast closed unexpectedly due to “unforeseen circumstances.” The gym says it’s currently looking for new space and will hopefully open again soon.

JUICY NEWS

Los Angeles-based Juice Served Here opened its second juice bar and cafe in Pasadena on Wednesday, less than six months after debuting its flagship location.

While New York’s Love Grace debuted a skin-care cleanse in partnership with natural beauty brand TAY skincare.
