Together with leading lifestyle media company, mindbodygreen, they have partnered to celebrate the hotel’s grand opening on Earth Day, Saturday April 22 2018, with a FREE, public mindfulness event at 1 Hotels’ newest property in Brooklyn Heights with supporting satellite activations at other 1 Hotel locations including Central Park, New York and South Beach, Miami.
“Every year, the world pays tribute to our planet on Earth Day, utilising it as an effective advocacy vehicle to build a healthy, sustainable environment, address climate change and protect the Earth for future generations,” says 1 Hotels’ Vice President of Sustainability, Amanda DeSantis.
“At 1 Hotels, our core philosophy is that the world around us is beautiful and we want to keep it that way, so it was a natural alignment for us to host this nationwide first event that facilitates awareness of the world’s largest environmental movement.”
Curated by mindbodygreen, the Brooklyn event will host a variety of activities including rooftop yoga led by Los-Angeles based instructor Caley Alyssa, group meditations led by Light Watkins and 1 Hotels’ in house meditation leader Biet Simkin, astrology readings with Bess Matassa of Mojave Rising and one-on-one sessions with Treatment by Lanshin, a Brooklyn-based wellness studio.
Additionally, there will be a musical and visual performance by BELLA GAIA and live panel discussions facilitated by CEO and Founder of mindbodygreen, Jason Wachob around sustainability, which will be livestreamed at Facebook/mindbodygreen.com.
Brooklyn vendors including Keap, Natchie, Matchaful, Devoción and more will be selling and sampling locally-made food, beverages, gift items, beauty and wellness products.
Additional refreshments will be available for purchase through 1 Hotels, along with local vendors from the new DeKalb Market Hall, opening later this spring, including Ample Hills Creamery, Bread & Spread and Jianbing Company.
