Aly Raisman Hosts ‘World Wellness Break’

The World Champion Gymnast has teamed up with Sanvello and Club Pilates

Aly Raisman, a World Champion Gymnast and 3x Olympic Gold medalist, has teamed up with Sanvello and Club Pilates to host a World Wellness Break in honor of Mental Health Awareness Month and National Pilates Month.

It’s no secret that many people are still reeling from the effects on their mental health that have been brought on by the pandemic. As reported by a study conducted by the CDC, the percentage of adults with recent symptoms of an anxiety or depressive disorder jumped from 36.4% to 41.5% in the past year.

But in an effort to encourage attention and conversation regarding the benefits of mind-body connection, Raisman has partnered with Club Pilates and Sanvello to host a ‘World Wellness Break.’

The event is meant as a kickoff to Mental Health Awareness Month and National Pilates Month in May, and will last for about 30 minutes in total—plenty of time for participants to “reset, revive and recharge their minds and bodies.”

The World Wellness Break will reportedly include a mind-body check-in and meditation led by Raisman, a mini-Pilates session with a Club Pilates master instructor, and breathing exercise led by Sanvello therapist Teressa Carter, MSW, LCSW. Participants will also receive a complimentary e-book, which includes a daily wellness routine from Club Pilates and a free, one-month trial of Sanvello following the event. The free virtual event will be held at 12pm Eastern Time / 9am Pacific Time on Saturday, May 1. To join, sign up at www.nationalpilatesday.com.

In a press release statement, Caitlin Tvrdik, Chief Marketing Officer for Club Pilates, said: “We are excited to partner with Aly and Sanvello and use our platforms to shed light on mind-body wellness, especially after the harrowing year it has been for many due to the pandemic. Aly has always been vocal about the importance of mental and physical health, and with May 1st marking the start of both Mental Health Awareness Month and National Pilates Month, we felt now was the perfect time to team up and ignite conversation and action around these important issues.”
