Tell us about Tribeca Wellness Group...
Dr. Mark Hyman, director of the Cleveland clinic for Functional Medicine once said, "The power of community to create health is far greater than any physician, clinic or hospital." Tribeca Wellness Group is a collaborative effort between local health and wellness companies to bring vibrant health to the community of Tribeca. Our goal is to support each other's businesses while designing an approachable community that creates easy access to learning about and participating in a healthful lifestyle.
What inspired you to start Tribeca Wellness Group?
Tribeca Wellness Group was born out of inspiration from Jennifer Famery-Mariani, creator of Tribeca Art Night. Jennifer has created this gorgeous map and amazing community around art in Tribeca. Sveta had the idea to do a similar thing with health and wellness.
What are the benefits for locals of Tribeca Wellness Group?
Our long term goal is to be a hub of information, learning tools, and support around wellness. We will be listing upcoming events on our website.
What should locals know about Tribeca Wellness Group?
To achieve true wellness one must take a multi facetted approach. We realized, as a group, that no one modality could bring you everything required. This is why we decided to team up so that we can share our knowledge and expertise with the community.
What's coming up for Tribeca Wellness Group?
We have our launch party this Tuesday, May 22nd from 6-8pm at The Fred Astaire Downtown dance studio. We have 9 wellness companies involved so far. The party will be a great time to come have a glass of wine and chat with the members. Also, we will have a fun swag bag with goodies and offers from each business. Come join us!
