Next Beginnings at The Yard

April 24, 2019/ by Olivia Ramirez

We’re feeling great after the recent BE WELL: Next Beginnings event at The Yard: Herald Square! Together, we’ve forged a clear path towards the next chapter, and we couldn’t feel more ready.

BE WELL: Next Beginnings was the third installment of our quarterly event series presented by The Yard and TRU HAUS as part of The Yard Wellness Program. BE WELL brings together members from The Yard’s coworking community, partners in the health and wellness fields, and local experts for an evening of discussions with a panel of experts, DIY activities, shopping, and giveaways!

This was followed by breakout activities and workshops throughout the space to promote positive thinking towards “next steps in our journeys”.
