A Morning of Wellness

I hosted the event..."A Morning of Wellness" and it was beautiful! Witnessing these women having fun and appreciating the event and each other was worth the effort. So many of us are busy taking care of others while we neglect ourselves. So with a little nudge and a lot of push from my family (hubby and sis), I decided to host this event. I love motivating and inspiring women, so it was the perfect event to emphasize to my sisters that they matter, they are important, they are worthy of wellness and that they are loved.

Zumba Workout

 PIES Fitness in Alexandria, VA, led us in Zumba and Yoga practice. It was amazing doing these routines under the canopy of trees while feeling the soft breezes against our faces. Hosting this event at Fort Washington Park was an awesome decision. Our blood pressure, glucose and cholesterol screenings were conducted by the Philippine Nurses Association of  Metropolitan DC. They also participated in the fun. All the participants felt great afterwards and agreed to make a committment to make time for wellness. Prevention is key to a healthy lifestyle and longevity.

It does not have to be a formally planned event. Get together with your girlfriends at least once per month and have a wellness event. You can pop in a workout DVD, go for a walk or plan to meet at a gym or yoga studio. Take time to connect with each other and with your inner self. You can thank me later!
Be inspired, be connected, be well and embrace your journey.

PIES Fitness is located at 50 South Pickett Street Suite 223, Alexandria, Virginia 22304
