In early 2014, Essentia Water launched its Hydration Specialist program in Southern California and New England. Essentia also recently announced a team for the New York City metropolitan area.
“We are excited to add Desi and Shay to the Essentia team of Hydration Specialists,”
Desi Bartlett M.S., CPT, has taught health and wellness for 20 years, inspiring and motivating celebrities and moms to be. She has a degree in Kinesiology and a minor in dance from the University of Illinois at Chicago, plus advanced certifications in yoga, personal training, pre- and postnatal fitness, and group fitness. Bartlett leads Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training at Exhale and is an instructor at Gold’s Gym, both of which are located in Venice, Calif. Bartlett’s dedication to helping moms stay fit and hydrated is reflected in her soon-to-launch Prenatal Yoga DVD (Gaiam)*. The video features two complete practices for prenatal health and wellness, with modifications for all three trimesters. The Strong Mama yoga workout is for increasing strength and endurance. The Cool Mama sequence is for maintaining flexibility and connecting to a deep sense of tranquility.
