I have always had delightful experiences when visiting the community at Vibrant Nation. Vibrant Nation is the leading community of women 45+ - they really DO understand! I enjoy looking through the content and sharing my thoughts with the community.
I was very lucky to be selected to participate in a Vibrant Nation experience. It included shopping for athletic clothing for a yoga event with fellow bloggers, going to dinner, and then attending a yoga event!
During the Vibrant Nation experience, I was able to meet other bloggers from across the country. How marvelous to enjoy the company and wisdom of mature likeminded women.
It was great to learn about other bloggers, as VN treated us to Zero Otto Nove, an Italian restaurant. We shared
stories from our unique perspectives and engaged with our "vibrant" personalities.
Vibrant Nation's staff are sincerely tuned in to their audience and work diligently to inspire, empower and provide quality content. The content goes beyond their powerful online presence to intimate in-person settings.
Vibrant Nation treated myself and fellow bloggers with an outfit from Athleta so that we could feel well dressed for an aerial yoga event we were attending the next day. As you know, I teach yoga so I was very excited for this opportunity. When I walked in the store, the shopping experience provided us with a personal connection to the Athleta brand quality customer service.
My first introduction to Athleta was during my participation in the Solstice In Times Square 2014: Athleta Mind Over Madness Yoga. The volunteers got great outfits sponsored by Athleta and I would browse the Upper West Side, NYC Store.
The Athleta staff in the Flatiron, NYC store with the Yoga studio below, was very helpful. Once they saw me selecting several items, they took the selections and set up a dressing room for me. While in the dressing room, the staff kept checking on me and bringing me alternative sizes and styles to meet my specifications in an outfit.
Yes, I showed off my new X tank top and legging from Athleta at the Solstice in Times Square event June 21, 2016.
I will definitely shop at Athleta again; they are the kind of athletic gear facility that makes me feel like a kid in a candy store. I recommend Athleta to my yoga students who are looking for quality clothing to practice in.
At the yoga event we were treated to a light breakfast while enjoying a meet and greet. The aerial yoga session was amazing and challenging; your muscles are really tested. It was my first time trying it and it evoked my childhood gymnastics days and my 20-year yoga practice. I surprised myself with the amount of strength I did have to pose for the awesome photo shot of me in an Aerial Yoga split!
I am so grateful for the Vibrant Nation Network and highly recommend other bloggers to connect with likeminded women engaging this nation of empty nesters, midlife entrepreneurs, mothers of adult children, caregivers, and business leaders. VN is professionally run by a caring and dedicated staff. VibrantNation.com is the leading online community for women over 45 – the place where they connect and support each other on issues unique to their stage of life, including fashion, beauty, family, work, relationships, health, fitness, money, and sex. I look forward to continuing to contribute and grow with the Vibrant Nation Network.
