For the second year in a row, Swedish Institute Continuing Education
was a co-sponsor of the Body Local Midsummer Rooftop Party, held on
Wednesday July 27th, which was attended by approximately 550 health and
wellness professionals in the tri-state area.
Body Local is an organization devoted to connecting NYC’s wellness and fitness community and practitioners, and the midsummer soiree is their signature annual event. Located at the rooftop of the Mercedes Club in midtown, this poolside event features a wellness pavilion, poolside DJ, and numerous businesses ranging from companies related to yoga, pilates and personal training to organic skin care, organic food and sustainable apparel. We were happy to be able to talk to so many people about what Swedish Institute has to offer, and by the end of the night, we were once again wiped out of our informational handouts and give-aways. We were also particularly happy to see such a nice amount of Swedish Institute alumni and even some of our current faculty and students at the event – who in turn seemed very excited and proud to see their school present.
It’s great to be a part of the Body Local community of people passionate about health & wellness and eager to support each other, and we look forward to continuing to partner with Body Local for more upcoming events this fall.
