Shape Up For Spring | Pure Barre CWE
Thursday, April 25
If your healthy New Year’s resolutions have already fallen by the wayside, now is the perfect time to recommit. Pure Barre CWE has three different classes to help you strengthen, lengthen and tone your physique — and tonight — they’re breaking down their Pure Reform class! Perfect for beginners, this FREE 45-minute interactive workshop walks you through each section of the Pure Reform class and helps you focus on finding proper alignment while using the resistance bands and sliders. You can sign-up online or through the Pure Barre app.
Shop for a Cause | Bonobos
Spruce up your wardrobe this spring, while also supporting gender equality. Bonobos recently launched their first womenswear capsule collection: “We’re for Women.” From snazzy jumpsuits to colorful prints, these designs will help you make an entrance! The best part? Bonobos will donate forty percent of the proceeds (up to $100,000) from the sale of each piece in the collection to Promundo, a 501(c)(3) organization committed to promoting gender justice and equality by engaging men and boys in partnership with women and girls.
