Introducing collaborative wellness events in New York City
After designing and launching my own Active Fashion line, my excitement for the wellness industry continues (I am officially hooked on coconut milk, chia seeds, and ClassPass!). Thrilled by the increasing number of amazing people I have met (on Instagram alone) since launching Alexis Mera in February 2015, The Wellness Pop Up was created as a way to bring all the elements of the wellness scene together, and create real time in person collaborative pop up events, with like minded ladies and gents. Events are held at fitness studios around New York City.
Our very first wellness pop up will be held this December. We have curated an awesome line up of brands and wellness products (check them out below), that we know you will love! In addition, Dr. Laura Miranda of PURSUIT will be attending the event as a guest speaker. If you stick around long enough, you'll get a taste of her outdoor fitness experience (It's a fitness revolution, really.) - learn more about Laura here.
We would love for you to come shop, sweat, and snack with us!

Conscious Coconut is a social enterprise fueled by love, with a belief that this is done through self-love and the alignment of paying it forward and giving back. Following a career in investment banking, Founder, Danielle, headed to Bali in search of happiness, balance, and to catch up on years of sleep. Over the next year she taught English and computer skills to Balinese children, traveled throughout Southeast Asia, dove into Buddhism, her yoga and meditation practice, and more importantly spent time with people that needed care and support. Coconut oil is a huge part of daily wellness and Danielle unconsciously became quite the coconut fan.
Conscious Coconut works directly with their farmers and suppliers, supporting fair trade practices on their journey to bring you their multi-tasking miracle. Conscious Coconut tubes are then packaged by adults with developmental disabilities at the MacDonald Training Center located in Tampa, Florida. For every purchase, a child is given a meal through Feeding America food banks.
Dr. Laura Miranda, Founder of PURSUIT
Fitness Entrepreneur Dr. Laura Miranda is changing the future of the work out.

We are super psyched to have Laura attending our first event as a guest speaker, stick around long enough and you'll get a taste of her outdoor fitness experience (it's a fitness revolution, really).
Before, During and After Sport is Après.
Pieces that perform long after yoga class. Performance shouldn’t stop the minute you leave the studio. It’s something that should leave you feeling positively sexy, confident and effortlessly chic long after your morning sun salutation. A fusion of function and fashion--our collection is designed with high-end luxury fabrics merged with advanced anti-cellulite technology to ensure you’re getting contouring benefits in and out of the gym.
Clothing inspired by the modern woman. Après is more than just an athletic apparel company. With a background in Exercise Science,, Après founder and mother of four, Jessica Gershman, found that athletic apparel was keeping women from feeling confident about their bodies. With the overwhelming pressure for women to look their best at all times, Jessica believes clothing should only work for us, not against us. So, she set out to make the “perfect legging”—a style that not only compliments a woman’s body, but also inspires confidence. Après legging designs are designed in the Midwest and produced in Los Angeles.
Elizabeth Cotton is a collection of cozy cotton pajamas. Elizabeth is committed to making the best pajamas she can, in the nicest possible way! Fabrics come from small European mills that specialize in making high quality natural fiber fabrics, and she manufactures collections in New York City's historic Garment District.
Stop by and treat yourself to a pair of PJ's - signup for Elizabeth Cotton's newsletter on site, and you will be entered to win a Liberty Fabric clutch/cosmetic bag.
