It’s official!! Lean and Green Body® is a Blue Zones Project® partner!
The ribbon cutting was on Saturday, November 3rd at 8th Ave South in Naples. We were honored to have the official Blue Zone’s team there to celebrate our new partnership. Lean and Green Body® is excited to be a partner and support the mission of the Blue Zones Project®.
The ribbon cutting was followed by a 60 minute vinyasa yoga class over looking the beach … the sound of the waves soothed our souls during savasana.
Delicious Raw and Epiphany Bakery both showed their support with post yoga treats!
