FREE Yoga Booty Ballet Class Tonight (10/29, 7-8pm)


What do you get when you combine cardio dance, ballet, Hatha yoga, Kundalini yoga, and meditation into one? Yoga Booty Ballet. And there is going to be a FREE hour of it at Human@Ease tonight from 7-8PM.

ybbburnThe meditation element serves to focus and awaken. The dance portion promotes endurance and detoxification. The ballet section increases strength and bone density. The yoga promotes flexibility, balance, and inner wellness. Students consistently complete class feeling better about themselves than when they arrive. Classes are easy to follow, which allows for feeling more fun than fitness. Don’t forget your water bottle, Kristen’s class is high energy, and sweaty!

Kristen has been teaching Yoga Booty Ballet in Los Angeles since 2007. Her interest in fostering many aspects of well-being within the context of this spirited class, has inspired her to teach, grow, and evolve Yoga Booty Ballet into a community of empowered women and men.

5 Lame & Limiting Reasons That Keep You from Losing Weight (And how to work the shift out of it)

 A weight loss journey can be a difficult one, especially when you have YOU to deal with. Throughout life, a lot of us have been conditioned to develop a pretty poor relationship with food; along with many limiting beliefs about the power we have to change things. And just like any relationship that is like a turbulent rollercoaster, it typically ends up in a downward spiral. Here are some common reasons that could be worth looking at before you decide to get off your ride.

1. You have a fat phobia

Fats have been demonized for far too long and although they are making a break from the past, many people are still stuck on the notion that fats are evil. Fat free and fake alternative products are still being mass marketed and consumers just like you rack up your shelves and fridges with overly processed items that claim to be better for you; when in fact, these products are usually packed with added sugars and fillers that can end up only making you hungrier or craving more of the same foods.

Craft Beer, Haiku, Strawberry Gin, Face Painting, Electric Wildflowers, 60+ Vendors, & more!!! Spring Market (4/26)

Spring-Market_noaddress_235pxThe late great Robin Williams once said “Spring is nature’s way of saying ‘Let’s party!'”  So we’re thinking this year’s brutal winter overstayed its welcome as nature’s cue for a massive celebration.

Celebrate Spring with us on Sunday, April 26th, 2015, 1-7PM at the Greenpoint Loft (67 West St, 5th Fl).

We’ll have plenty of Strawberry Gin courtesy of Brooklyn Gin and craft beer by Greenpoint Beer & Ale on the ready for toasting throughout the day. Specially brewed for this market is “Rabbit Island,” a modern New Zealand inspired pilsner with tropical fruit notes and white grape.  It will be served alongside “Fisticuffs,” a malty, creamy, easy day drinking English dark mild with hints of cocoa and bread crust.  Continue reading

Get Fit or Get Fined? Is this Even Legal? B.E.S.T. Plan Starts 10/26!


What would your community be like if it had ‘fitness patrols’ roaming your neighborhood streets? McDonald’s would probably be an underground junk food dealer (4 chicken nuggets in a dime bag, please) and Starbucks would most likely sell wheat grass macchiatos and have stair masters in their lounges instead of free wi-fi.

Well Human@Ease actually did the unthinkable and the Fitness Protection Police patrolled the Greenpoint streets to promote a healthier lifestyle to the community! Continue reading
