To gear up for its 3rd Annual One WHIRL Yoga Fest + Healthy Lifestyle Expo, WHIRL Magazine hosted a Warm-Up Party, sponsored by UPMC Health Plan, at Social at Bakery Square. The festival’s yoga ambassadors, vendors, and sponsors shared light, healthy fare, such as vegetables and hummus, and a signature cocktail. Appropriately named “The Yogatini,” the perfect pour included basil and Blue Diamond Vodka. The festivities were held to preface the 3rd Annual One WHIRL Yoga Fest + Healthy Lifestyle Expo, sponsored by UPMC Health Plan, Giant Eagle Market District, GNC, and Peoples Natural Gas — all of which seek to promote a healthy community in Pittsburgh. Says UPMC Health Plan Vice President of Internet Strategy Sharon Hicks, “By supporting the One WHIRL Yoga Fest + Healthy Lifestyle Expo, not only is UPMC Health Plan giving back to the people and the communities we serve — a fundamental part of our mission — but, we are also supporting an event that emphasizes health and wellness for people of all ages. At UPMC Health Plan, we put special emphasis on programs that focus on eating well and staying active, which is exactly what the One WHIRL Yoga Fest + Healthy Lifestyle Expo is all about. It’s a great event that gets better every year.”
