Making the Most of Summer in Eastie

by Angela D'Amore

Hi everyone!

Time flies when you’re having fun – that is for sure – and what fun we have been having! On behalf of The Point East Boston Barre and Yoga team, we love you guys! The energy you have brought to the studio has been contagious. We are so energized and uber-focused on creating new workshops, planning cool events, supporting the community and adding more classes to our schedule. Be on the lookout for a survey coming soon. We are loving your feedback! And, if you haven’t signed up for our email list yet, join now to participate in the survey!

So, seriously, I don’t know how it happened, but it has already been a month since our Open House weekend. I can’t believe it. We made it to mid-July and I couldn’t be more excited about the support and love we have received and all of the amazing students I have met. I really cannot thank everyone enough.

Our mission at The Point is to support the East Boston community that has already given us so much. Summer is the absolute best time in Eastie – people are out and about and there are SO many fun events happening. I am so excited about Eastie Week – happening this year from July 12 – July 22.  Eastie Week (actually, 10 days!) is packed full of free events for the whole family including a Sunset Harbor Cruise, concerts, movies and even some yoga!

We, of course, couldn’t pass up the opportunity to offer some free classes during the celebration. Come flow with us for free on Sunday July 16th from 7:00 – 8:00 a.m. for Vinyasa Flow at the studio, or Wednesday July 19th from 9:00 – 10:00 a.m. for Hip Hop Yoga at the studio. Finally, join us for Yoga in the Park – Piers Park that is! -  at 10 a.m. on July 22.

Also, on Saturday, July 22, from 12:00 – 1:00 p.m., we are hosting a Class for a Cause. This is a donation-based class and this month we are helping to support the Eastie Village Family Association. Come flow with us and support this great organization.

In addition to our excitement about Eastie Week and the other events happening around us, we are thrilled to announce several workshops and events taking place right at our studio in the coming weeks and months.

On July 21, we are hosting a Reiki Circle led by Usui Healer, Marco Aurelio Vinci. Bring your hopes and dreams in a bag and watch them grow before your third eye. Set your next great intention inside of a Reiki-charged mandala. Reiki is a natural way to calm the mind and alleviate physical ailments of stress. Possible side effects of Reiki healing include: finding a higher sense of self and removal of negative thought patterns/ideas – we can’t wait to see how this gathering helps YOU!

Looking ahead, we have tons more opportunities to get involved – Sunset Yoga for Mermaids (yes, you read that right!), Intro to Barre and Magnolia Barre teacher training – and that’s just the beginning! Check out our Events & Workshops page for more information and to secure your spot!

We love being part of the Eastie community, and are just getting started with collaborating and supporting local partners!  We can’t wait to see what each new season brings to the community. We’ll see you at Eastie Week!!
