What a great way to start the weekend. Scores of ladies (and one gent), clad in their yoga best, got down with downward dog and other asanas (poses) for “Get Fit With Pink Yoga,” led by instructor Alexis Tomaino at Bloomingdale’s White Plains Oct. 7. Not only did we feel all stretchy and relaxed after the class, for which the retailer teamed with activewear line Spiritual Gangster, but we had the store’s trademark hot-pink yoga mat and a nice goody bag to remember the day by.
And all for a $10 reservation fee benefitting The Carey Foundation and the Marisa Acocella Marchetto Foundation, dedicated to breast cancer awareness.
If you missed the action, not to fret. You can still get in the game. Through Oct. 31, you can enroll in “Give Pink, Get More” by spending $15 on your Bloomie’s card. Those proceeds go entirely to the two foundations above plus the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Then shop till you drop for an up-to-$250 “Give Pink, Get More” gift card.
As Tomaino said, what better way to give than by getting fab merchandise?
