Skimble Recap: Yoga NightLife, California Academy of Sciences

Workout Trainer by Skimble: CAS Yoga NightLifeOnce a week the California Academy of Sciences opens its doors to San Franciscans for the NightLife events, where a specific theme takes over the halls of the museum for an evening and people from diverse backgrounds and interests come together to explore this magnificent place.

Skimble was in good company with local friends from Yoga Tree, Yoga Flow SF, and Lief Therapeutics.

What better way to get centered than amongst some of the most beautiful exhibits of mother nature herself.

It’s easy to neglect our personal health, or let an exercise regime lapse, when we’re busy and its cold and dark outside.  But thanks to cool new technology, it doesn’t have to be this way.  VentureBeat features Rock Health portfolio companies including Skimble:

If you fast forward to the 1:50 min mark in the video, you’ll see that whether you’re going for a run, practicing yoga, rock climbing or doing a workout challenge in Workout Trainer, ’tis the season to stay nimble, Skimblers.
