Your go-to Bala product?
I use the Play Mat (Sand) every single day, whether I’m stretching or taking a class at home. I also love the classic Bangles (Sand) and Bala Bars (Sand) when I’m shadowboxing. I can’t wait to try out to new jump rope as well!
Tell us about your work with ACTIV-ISM?
ACTIV-ISM is an anti-racism wellness company. Our goal at ACTIV-ISM is to educate, empower and uplift marginalized folks and create an ongoing practice of accountability, instruction and exploration for their allies. Founded by myself and Kira West in 2020, ACTIV-ISM offers a wide variety of resources and programs with the fight for racial justice at the center. Most recently, we wrote a book called “ACTIV-ATING: Your Vocabulary” which is for sale on at activ-ism.com. In “ACTIV-ATING: Your Vocabulary”, we breakdown terms and demystify concepts, empowering you to feel a little more knowledgeable and a little more articulate when you have challenging dialogues.
How do you stay motivated?
Planning my day and setting my intentions the night before is the best way for me to get motivated. When I have a great morning, I know I always have a great day, so waking up with a purpose is my go-to to start motivated.
Your Favorite Part of Bala NYC?
The entire space is BEAUTIFUL, but I especially love the chair shaped like a Bala Bangle!
