Body and Soul Rendezvous

September 5, 2012   |   Giving Back, News, Showroom Scoop

Get ready to be inspired! Woodways’ Body and Soul Rendezvous is our next event and we are counting down the days until September 20th! It will be an evening focused around health and fitness while having a good time for a great cause. We’ve teamed up with West Michigan’s myTEAM TRIUMPH to bring the best of Grand Rapids’ local businesses to our Woodways showroom on Thursday, September 20, 2012. Bring a friend (or two, or three!) from 5:30pm-8:30pm for live cooking demonstrations, interactive yoga and tai chi performances, and the latest in fitness apparel and merchandise. You’ll get to taste samples, enjoy drinks, and watch origami come to life with an unbelievable artistic showcase. Whether you’re looking for an interesting night out, to find new recipes and fitness apparel, or to network with locals – there is something for everyone!

If you haven’t had the pleasure of attending one of our rendezvous events and would like to learn more, please visit our facebook page and check out photos from some of our past events like our Taste of Italy or Hip & Local Rendezvous.

Unleash your inner chef!

During the evening, there will be samples to taste during a live cooking demonstration by Holistic Health Counselor, Laura K. Burkett. She will explore detoxifying drinks, dishes, and desserts to nourish the cells from the inside out. Between the quality of food catered by our local Forest Hills Foods, inspirations from the William Bos Greenhouse and Farms, and the holistic culinary knowledge of Laura (pictured below), your taste buds are sure to leave energized!

Test your athletic talents!

Test out your skills in the participation-encouraged yoga and tai chi demonstration held by Teri Harmon, group fitness director at East Hills, the Mac and Orchard Hills athletic clubs. All ages and skill levels are welcome. Wear something comfortable if you’re really ready to move! Teri will be joined by the best names in athletic apparel and merchandise including Gazelle Sports and Village Bike & Fitness. They will offer tips to help you prepare for being active in the colder months, like how to dress for cold weather, how you can make being active in the outdoors FUN in the cold temperatures, and you’ll get a glimpse of their new fall/winter lines.

Bring an open mind!

Maybe biking and yoga aren’t exactly your “thing.” In that case, take a stroll through our custom design showroom and gaze at Linda Stephen’s origami masterpieces. Linda will be showcasing six pieces from her extraordinary collection ranging in size and detail. If your taste buds and body weren’t already enriched, your eyes and mind will be after witnessing Linda’s work!
