Two self-described “entreprenueresses” are coming together with a mission of taking health and wellness in Richmond to a new level.

Shape Soirée, being put on by AnnMarie Grohs of BOHO Cycle Studio and Kelly Kostecki of Om On Yoga, will be a three-day, city-wide event “focused on inspiring people to shape their life journey; mind + body + heart,” the two said in a joint news release.

The pair said the idea for the event originally centered around cycle and yoga, but soon they began realizing there is more to each of their personal selves, and began to reinvent how they thought of traditional health and wellness. Out of this vision came the idea for a city wide event.

Scheduled to take place October 19th through the 21st, the event will be curated “for the wanderlusts, entrepreneurs, and overall go-getters.”

More from the organizers:

Equal parts knowledge and empowerment, Shape Soirée, will focus on connection through fashion, community, brands, and conversation centered on mindfulness, radical self-care, nutrition, wellness, life hacking, and more. All the essential pieces which will help clarify and amplify you, for you to continue the life journey; in the art of shaping you.

The weekends opening soirée begins with an Athleisure Fashion show at Rhythm Hall, followed by a series of Conscious Conversations Friday, October 20th, wrapping up with a speaker panel & key note address on Saturday, October 21st.
