Don’t be the only one at the office this week who doesn’t know which new fitness studio just opened (and is flooded with celebrities) or where that new vegan sushi hotspot is.

We’ll keep you in-the-know with this weekly round-up of the most important wellness news—including fitness and yoga studio openings, celeb juice cleanses, better beauty news, and more:

Russell Brand got up out of Lotus and led a walkout of his yoga class at LA’s Golden Bridge Yoga studio, according to Radar Online, after hearing that the studio wouldn’t let his favorite teacher, Tej Kaur Khalsa, out of her contract. Demi Moore was among the yogis who rolled up their mats and followed Brand in protest.

Hamptons green juice fave Juicy Naam shuttered its only New York City location inside the Hotel Wales. Owner Giuliana Torre says the spiritual cleanse company will open in a new “exciting location” in just a few short weeks. More details to come!

According to an unconfirmed report from In Touch In Touch, celeb yogi Hilaria Thomas may already be pregnant with Alec Baldwin’s baby. We knew the marriage would mark the end of her killer abs sequences.

Body by Simone
Dance cardio is getting manly.

And Thomas’ studio, Yoga Vida, announced new classes that will hit the schedule at both of its studios on February 4. The new options include early morning and early evening flow classes and a twice-a-week basics class.

Body By Simone is debuting BBS Men, a class that will bring her dance cardio method to dudes, on February 10 at noon.  The just-for-guys class is only $20, compared to her normal $35. Ugh. Men. (Email [email protected] to RSVP.)

We weren’t kidding when we said online workouts were blowing up. Drumstick workout Pound just launched online workout classes with the method’s founders.
