Launched last year by Mayor Martin J.

"[The] Social Fitness Festival is an opportunity for our whole community to come together and engage in a wide range of free fun activities," explained Mayor Walsh of last year’s inaugural fitness festival. Given the tremendous outpouring of support for last year’s festival, next month’s Social Fitness Festival is expected to be even larger and to bring thousands of active participants to City Hall Plaza for a variety of workout events.             

For its part, Swet Studio will be adding a vertical element to Festival by hoisting its silk hammocks above City Hall Plaza for special Aerial Yoga and Fitness classes, in which the public will be invited to participate together with instructors and practitioners of the aerial art.

Explains the studio's General Manager, Silviya Mihaylova, "The Social Fitness Festival is such a brilliant concept, and a great way for people to share the idea of healthy living." It is also, according to Mihaylova, the perfect venue for Swet Studio to showcase the expansions of its new offerings, which will include a Winter Session aerial yoga kids program for children to learn fun aerial movements. "Aerial yoga for kids," Mihaylova describes, "is so much fun, and a great entry for children into the practice."

Dedicated students looking to deepen their knowledge and take their practice to a new level are welcome to participate."
