Return to Wellness in downtown Glen Cove Downtown

A full of day of activities are scheduled for June 25

After more than two years of adapting to life amid a pandemic, many people may feel that more self-care is needed. A change in work or school routines combined with either actual illness or a fear of getting sick have left many neglecting their health, and now, with summer approaching, they may believe it’s time to take charge. Business owners within the Glen Cove Downtown Business Improvement District similarly believe now is the ideal time to take control of your health and want to incentivize the community by bringing a day of wellness to Village Square on Saturday, June 25.
“Downtown Glen Cove has gained several new fitness businesses in recent years, and we thought an event like this would help to not only showcase these establishments, but also highlight our other wellness professionals,” Patricia Holman, executive director of the Downtown BID said. “We hope the community comes out to meet the instructors and owners of these businesses, experience classes at no charge, and perhaps be inspired to join a studio and take their health to the next level.”
Beginning at 10 a.m., attendees will be treated to a full day of free classes in the square from Glen Cove Fitness, Garcia Muay Thai, Glen Cove Yoga, Soca Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Mary’s Fitness Studio, Rumble Boxing and Living Lotus. Each class will be about 30 to 40 minutes long and will include MX4, kickboxing, yoga, Pilates, Zumba, jiu jitsu, boxing and a sound bowl meditation. Massage therapists from Glen Cove Massage will discuss the benefits of massage, and other professionals include psychotherapists, an acupuncturist, and a clairvoyant. These business owners will be available to provide information to the community about what they provide, and additional vendors will be on site offering essential oils, candles, lotions, soaps, crystals, books and more. Vendors include Scents 4 My Soul, Eye of Newt Potions, Mind Body Alliance, Monarch Acupuncture and The Curious Spirit.
"Downtown Glen Cove has many health and wellness businesses, and it was our desire to bring them together,” said John Robinson of Glen Cove Massage and a member of the Wellness Committee. “I hope this event can help foster collaboration so we can better help serve the community."
Glen Cove Yoga will be holding two yoga classes during the day, and studio owner Amy Garvey joined the Wellness Committee to help organize the event.
“We wanted to offer our services for free, in collaboration with the other amazing local wellness businesses,” Garvey said, “so that the community can get a feel for what the town has to offer, and can recommit to their wellbeing after the pandemic.”
Additionally, the Downtown BID will be selling a Wellness Booklet that people can utilize at participating businesses to try out classes. Attendees can stop by the BID’s table at the event to learn more.
