We recap everything earth-shattering that happened in health and wellness this week: December 21–January 3, 2013.

FITNESS BUZZ

Union Square’s Pilates ProWorks broke away from its national brand, changing its name to Flex Studios. You won’t see changes to the schedule, however, which still includes the fast-paced, tricked-out reformer workout, as well as barre and TRX classes.

In partnership with the NFL, Flywheel announced a month-long Ride for Super Bowl XLVIII program, to benefit the NY/NJ Snowflake Youth Foundation and NFL PLAY 60. The program will include in-studio challenges, rides with NFL players, and a pop-up Flywheel studio at the Super Bowl.

Union Square’s long anticipated rowing-based workout studio City Row will officially open for its first day of classes on Monday, January 6.

Meanwhile, CrossFit box EVF Performance announced its new Columbus Circle location will include Row House, a studio dedicated to rowing-based group fitness classes.

Crunch’s Fort Greene gym introduced a cardio dance workout class taught by two of the Brooklyn Nets’ dancers. Called Center Court Choreography, it will also teach gym-goers Brooklynette routines from actual game performances.

FOOD NEWS

Vegan ice cream company DF Mavens will open an East Village shop in March, on St. Mark’s and Second Avenue, according to DNAinfo.com. The coconut, almond, and soy-based ice creams are made by the former owner of vegan sweets shop Stogo.

The company that owns Einstein Bros. Bagels and Noah’s New York Bagels introduced a new Smart Choices menu including “Thintastic” lower calorie bagels and sandwiches, and they’re ringing Nasdaq’s opening bell on January 8 to celebrate. (Um, I think we all know that there’s really nothing healthy about a bagel. And if you’re going to eat one…)

HAPPENINGS

On Wednesday, January 8, Chelsea Market is hosting six (300 person!) yoga and fitness classes, with some of New York’s top teachers—like yoga with Kula’s Schuyler Grant and Nikki Vilella to sweat sessions with Taryn Toomey or Brick New York’s Will Lanier. The event, called Urban Souk, is the brainchild of Lululemon’s MeatPacking District store.

Beloved yoga luminaries Dana Flynn and Elena Brower are hosting a charity yoga event for Women for Women International on the evening of Friday, January 10 that will help you fulfill your resolution of practicing your yoga off the mat, too.
