Free Week at CorePower Yoga!

I alluded in a previous post that I had a CorePower Yoga related announcement coming up. As many of you know, I’m obsessed with the CorePower Sculpt workout, and recently explained why in a dedicated post. Well, I’m excited to announce that I am going to be a Brand Ambassador for the Allston, MA studio!

What this means is I’ll be spreading the word about CorePower and the fact that they offer a 100% free week of yoga to new students. Full disclosure: I am getting some free yoga for doing this. But more full disclosure: I have NOT been getting any free yoga while I’ve been tweeting and posting up a storm about this workout for the last few months. Nope, this is 100% genuine and sweaty love.

Why I Love CorePower Yoga

I’ve mentioned CorePower Yoga on numerous occasions on this blog, and thought it might be time to write a dedicated post about my studio (in Allston, MA), my favorite class (Sculpt), and what CorePower has meant for my fitness routine.

I first tried out CorePower when my friend Kat visited me from CT and said she wanted to do a good workout the morning after a mini restaurant tour. I definitely agreed and suggested CorePower since we could both go for free (first week is free at CorePower Yoga studios, which is nice because you have a week to try out the different classes they offer). We woke up at a time that worked to try the Sculpt class, so that’s what we set off to do. I thought it’d be an average yoga class that just focused a bit extra on strengthening poses such as chair or boat, but instead the class ended up being so much more. I felt so satisfied by the workout, which combined yoga poses and flow, light weights, barre-style moves, and cardio bursts, that I couldn’t wait to go back.

5 Benefits of Extended Winter

The idea for this post came to me last night as I was reflecting over parts of my week that probably would not have been “possible” given the fact that Boston had snow over the last few days, and was also STILL in the 30’s and 40’s. Winter’s ugly face has been sticking around for longer than anyone would like, but in an effort to stay positive, I started brainstorming the benefits of winter’s extended stay. I thought five benefits would be perfect for Five Things Friday.

Thanks Clare for hosting Five Things Friday!

1. Hot yoga feels way more satisfying. Days have been extra-dreary and that fact has made me look forward to CorePower Yoga Sculpt classes a few times a week all the more. I’ve even tried getting there a few minutes early so I can just lay on the mat and sweat in serenity. (Sweating while laying on your back is much more pleasant than sweating while doing a bunch of jump squats.) And when I exit class, the wintery temperatures actually feel…refreshing! For a few minutes at least.

Weekends Are For…

There’s a pile o’home fries under there.

Trading into March

Remember to enter my Redpack Tomatoes prize pack giveaway – it ends tonight at 11:59PM EST!

I can hardly believe it’s March. It sure doesn’t feel like it! I can only hope that once I get back from the cruise my family and I are going on in a couple of weeks (my first cruise!), spring will have arrived in Boston. For now there is no sign of the weather warming up, which I’d certainly trade. But there are also a few things I wouldn’t trade, so I’m here to update you guys on life via Trade Em Up Tuesday.

I would not trade…a baller spin class last night. Just had to mention that one straight off. It felt great. Thank you Danielle Dee for starting my week off with a kick-ass workout.

I would trade…my free week at CorePower Yoga ending. I got in four classes – three Sculpt (heated with weights) and one Hot Power Fusion. I decided to purchase a Groupon for a month of unlimited classes, and am going to activate it once I’m back from the cruise. I seriously am so excited about how much I have enjoyed these classes. It’s been awhile since I found a workout that left me undoubtedly satisfied once completed. No question about whether or not I did enough, no consideration of going to the gym to do more. I just walk out feeling refreshed and strong. I can’t wait until I’ve returned to Boston for a full month so that I can get back to the mat!

Weekend Trades

I haven’t been up for doing much writing lately, so I’ve been fairly absent recently – my bad. But if I’ve learned anything, it’s that forcing myself to write is a whole lot more frustrating than letting this blog go post-less for a week or so. Good has been happening lately, but a whole lot of bad on the emotional front as well. Sounds like a prime time for Trade Em Up Tuesday.

Seems I'm not alone!

Seems I’m not alone!

I would not trade…trying out a tasty new-to-me restaurant. Friday night I selected Marliave for a girls night with Jeannie and Allie. The menu looked super promising and I’m always down for starting my weekend with a good meal out. Despite some iffy service, we all really enjoyed our food and drinks! French restaurants do damn good French fries.
