Health & Wellness 2014


The April 2014 flip book edition of Virginia Living features Health & Wellness, your guide to top trends for the healthy life well lived. We meet the creators of Alexandria’s Sensazão Dance Fitness—the sweaty, sexy workout that has been described as “Zumba on crack,” and investigate Virginia’s many options for wellness tourism. You’ll also find recipes for great grains like quinoa, faro and kamut that are essential to a healthy diet. In our main issue, discover how generations have brought élan to the refurbishment of a historic yet timeless Old Town Alexandria house, and learn how the consumer demand for bison meat is driving farmers to make a go of raising the big woolies. We also present five inspired recipes to elevate the egg—simple in form, complex in what it can do. Our story on Virginia’s pro wrestlers explores the long, tough road to the WWE, with the promise of glory and love of the sport keeping wrestlers in the ring night after night, year after year. All that, plus an author’s wintry escape to Manalapan, Florida, a gastronome’s take on Virginia’s top culinary destinations and more! Pick up an April/Health & Wellness 2014 issue today!
