Friends of Roxy: Minx Nails at the Roxy Beach House

Minx Nails stopped by today to join in all the fun happening at the Quiksilver Pro, NY and despite the rain we were thrilled to have them! Not wasting any opportunity to beautify ourselves, we took the party upstairs at the Allegria Hotel and held a private shindig with our friends from Minx nails and some of the ROXY athletes!

Everyone had tons of fun checking out all the cool designs and took advantage of the VIP  beauty bar and nail studio throughout the day. The nail techs MINX-ified invited guests’ nails with special designs directly inspired by all things Roxy! From Roxy hearts, stripes, polkadots, metallics, brights and more, it was easy to make these nails completely unique!  Let’s just say…they Nail’d it!

Celebrities (and now top ROXY athletes) are loving Minx solid nail coats in an array of colors and patterns while donning them on the red carpets , silver screens, and in the SURF! Minx patented technology uses a flexible film that shrink-wraps to virtually all nail types including, natural, acrylic, and gel using heat. The best part is…it doesn’t wreck or damage your nails and let’s you change it up whenever you’d like! NAIL’d it

We’re STOKED to be debuting our very own beach-worthy, custom Roxy nail coatings created by our friends at MINX nails!

9/7/11: Free Roxy Sunrise Yoga with Joseph Encinia- Yogi Life

Join Roxy & Bikram Yoga Long Beach (BYLB) on the beach for FREE Roxy Sunrise Yoga!

In anticipation of National Yoga Day on September 10th we’ll be stretching our muscles and our minds at the Roxy Sunrise Yoga special happening at the Quiksilver Pro, NY right on the beach! We’ve always appreciated the relationship between yoga and surf, with yoga having been known to improve balance, flexibility and core strength which is much needed in Surf. Kelly Slater is a notorious fan of yoga – and that’s all we need to hear.

From Sept. 7th (pending rain) through Sept. 10th from 7am-8am, Roxy will be celebrating a healthy, fit lifestyle with Yoga instructors from BYLB and special guest instructor Joseph Encinia.

BYLB located in Long Beach, NY opened its doors in October of 2010 by co-owners and certified Yoga instructors, Anne Hayes and Colleen O’Rourke. Since its inception, the state-of-the-art facility has welcomed over 2,600 students, athletes, as well as countless international yoga champions who have shared their knowledge and passion with the Long Beach, NY community.

A frequent visitor of BYLB and yogi extraordinaire Joseph Encinia will be a guest instructor at Roxy Sunrise Yoga! As the current and 3 time National Champion and 2011 Male International Asana Champion it’s obvious we’ll be learning from the best!

Born and raised in Dallas, TX, Joseph began his life with an unpromising diagnosis of Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis leading to countless visits to the hospital and a struggle to strengthen his joints and muscles. After a major knee surgery, Joseph later suffered an unexpected heart attack at 13 years old. In an attempt to regain control of his health he learned about Bikram Yoga and has inspired millions since.

Please join us on the beach by the Roxy Surf Camp. Roxy Sunrise Yoga is FREE and open to ALL.

Arrive early, bring plenty of water, wear exercise clothing, and mostly importantly SMILE. We’ll take care of the rest…

Nameste & see you there!
