9/22 | CorePower Yoga Bryant Park | 12:00 – 1:45PM
There are many, many benefits of yoga as I am sure most of you guys have heard previously. Mindbodygreen teamed up with CorePower Yoga for a series of classes focusing on all the benefits, separating them into different days. This week’s: ENERGY!

This is an annual celebration of the Patron Saint of Naples, and is coupled with a proceeding down Mulberry Street every September 19th. Come and go as you please! Oh, by the way, come hungry. Zeppoles, cannoli, and meatballs, OH MY!
