Grab an amigo, skip what you’re doing… there are just 3 Signature Skips left this summer season, and it’s Skipping Club FIESTA TIME!!!

Last year our Fiesta was at Columbus Circle (check it out in the Village Voice!), but due to fountain construction, we are blessed with a new dose of newness… and we’re heading down to as-yet-uncharted Skipping Club territory: TriBeCa.

Meet at Pier 25 at 2PM, Thursday July 24th, to kick off a totally New York afternoon that you’ll never forget— and will burn over 400 calories. With a focus on balancing your masculine and feminine energies, playing with boundaries, loving your amigos, loving yourself and getting SOAKING WET…. we’ll skip, splish and splash, sombrero style, through the fountains of Pier 25, with sweeping views of the Financial District and sparkling murky Hudson waters. Then, we’ll frolick down the Hudson River Greenway, through the green, generous grass of Nelson, A. Rockefeller Park, making our up to the top of a marvellous monument we found some dancing, followed by siesta, ending at the gorgeous El Vez restaurant, where guacamole is included with your skip.

I am so honored and excited to welcome Buti Yoga teacher and movement visionary Paige MacKenzie Welborn as our skipping co-host this week!

I first tried out a Buti class with Paige last year as a recommendation – it’s like yoga, with hip gyrations and tribal dnce. You’re not in Warrior… you’re a warrior goddess – and you always have been. Paige lives from a place of service, and is ever inspiring in her mission to help create a positive, powerful shift and full self-embodiment for women. And it’s working – her Buti workshop and Monday night parties have attracted quite a following. Paige will lead us in a mid-skip Buti yoga session – along with other stretch and dance stops along the way! With our bodies as our guides, we’ll dive into our feminine energies, and then skip, stomp and dance it out into our masculine power. Check out Paige’s kick-ass Bikini Buti Camp program to learn more!

If you have any questions at all about the skip, email me — michelle(at) I know skipping can be intimidating… let alone skipping with a group of people dressed up around the streets of NY… and I hear ya! Let’s confront the things that intimidate us – on our own terms – to move through them. I stand strongly in creating a safe space for you to explore and PLAY. If there’s any question I can answer or thing I can do to help make Skipping Club a more comfortable idea for you to approach, please let me know what it is!
