Miami women are beautiful, ambitious, and headstrong - qualities which are sometimes not sufficiently celebrated or encouraged by our community. Enter Athleta, a sister brand to Gap that makes workout and lifestyle apparel for active women and that recently opened their Miami outpost on Lincoln Road. Athleta's first-ever national campaign "Power to the She" celebrates women's ability to do it all and encourages women to empower each other. Since their arrival, Athleta Miami has been leading our community by example and inviting local women to events that promote the mantra of their brand's campaign.
Athleta Miami's latest event, #ElleRocsAthleta, boasted a day-long itinerary of yoga and socializing at the gorgeous Elle Spa at Eden Roc Miami Beach. The hour-long yoga sessions were led by Amy Dannheim, one of Green Monkey Miami Beach's most popular teachers. Despite being Green Monkey devotees, it was our first class with Amy and one of our best practices! We concluded the day with an evening cocktail reception at the Elle Spa terrace hosted by local blogger Maria Tettamanti of The Wordy Girl. We were truly in our element celebrating Miami women with bubbly, appetizers, and some of our most inspiring locals. Thanks to everyone who made it such a memorable day!
