Jackie Stewart is fascinated with interpersonal relationships and finding mutual understanding between humans. On retreat at a monastery in Nepal, she deeply connected with Tibetan Buddhist teachings and has been exploring the various lineages in earnest ever since. She is the host of the Interdependence Project’s interactive online meditation, Sit Anywhere Sundays, a platform that encourages engaged discussion and making practice accessible. Jackie brings mindfulness into action through involvement in social activism, leading corporate meditations, and philanthropic work. With an MA in Media, Culture, and Communication from NYU, she works at mindfully finding the balance between the outer world of the fashion & entertainment industries and an inner life of feeling "whole and enough.”
Bring your babies and join our moms for a postnatal pilates class with Karrie Adamany.
"After the excitement, anticipation and physical upheaval your body endured during the course of your pregnancy, labor and delivery, you’re surely exhausted and don’t quite feel like yourself. Pilates gave me strength and confidence after the birth of my son, which is why I created this class and have been specializing in postpartum recovery for over 16 years. Whether you are six weeks or one year post baby, you will regain your strength, shape, and have energy to take on the challenges and joys of motherhood. Most importantly, you will feel like your body is yours again.
We start small, reigniting your abdominal muscles and strengthening the pelvic floor, along with some breathing and stretching.Then in no time you will boost your booty, streamline the waistline, and start to look like the new you - a strong and able mama. Babies are always welcome in class"
