Miss Amazing X Jane DO

By Cristin Van Horn, Edgewater Studio Manager

At Jane DO we always say a woman’s strongest quality is her confidence, that strength comes from within, and that DOing AMAZING things is what earns you the right to wear your CROWN proudly. When she was only thirteen, our very own Jane, Jordan Somer, came up with a concept, that later gave birth to program for girls and women with disabilities, that couldn’t be closer to our Jane DO hearts.

Miss Amazing is an organization that provides opportunities for girls and women with disabilities to test their boundaries, take on new challenges, and define themselves on their own terms, including redefining the standard of beauty.  Sounds f*cking cool right?!? Well it is, and this year Jane DO has teamed up with Miss Amazing to spread the love and celebrate women and girls who deserve to be seen and heard!

Miss Amazing uses pageantry as a mode to empower women and girls and celebrate their uniqueness and abilities.  This year, Jane DO is stepping in to lend a helping hand...or at least a helping dancing shoe. Dani and Jacey have dusted off their Rockette moves and choreographed the opening number for the Miss Amazing contestants to perform at the inaugural Miss Amazing pageant.  Watch out Radio City, there is a new show in town!

But we know that you guys want get involved too, so we have some things that you can DO to help Miss Amazing continue to be awesome!  


Community classes at jane do

Upcoming community classes will be donated to the Miss Amazing organization, so that they can continue to open doors of opportunity for women and girls with disabilities.  Check out our April and May class schedule for a community class coming to your home studio!


There is nothing plain about this AMAZING JANE!

These shirts, specifically designed for the Miss Amazing pageant, will have you rocking your Jane swag with a purpose!  TOGETHER let’s celebrate some AMAZING women and girls, and remind them to always wear their crown. Proceeds will go to the Miss Amazing Organization.

Jane's Book Club - Podcast Edition [Winter 2019]

By Cristin Van Horn, Edgewater Studio Manager

Hey Janes, whether you sit in bumper to bumper traffic on the turnpike everyday, stand on the subway for 30 mins, or carpool the kids everywhere, we are sure you have a few extra minutes that you could be using to step up your podcast game.  Here are a list of some of our favorite podcasts, in case your queue needs a little refresher.

2f63f2cc02cdb6f69980e4af3a79e935c626bea560eb92fcd08660f9d3131c016121fbd6a30b18fc8f5431c000234658456b44a98cc8d3b06d1d153a18881fe0.jpeg

1. Unladylike

This podcast is the perfect mix of feminist rage and rule breaking BADA$$es.  Tackling topics from How To Fill in Love with Herpes to How to Slay Sexism like a Professional, there is nothing off limits to this smart and sassy duo.

2. Dirty John

If you like a creepy who-done-it, this LA Times, true crime podcast is for you, and don’t just take our word for it, it was so popular it was turned into a mini series on Bravo.  You have it all; love, lies, and even murder...

3. She Did It Her Way

This full- time freelancer turned business owner shares her business strategies, productivity hacks, and all things entrepreneurial in this podcast.  She also interviews other ROCKSTAR women who have taken the leap and done things their way.

4. Guys We F****d

Ok so not suitable for carpooling the kids, but this podcast by two female comedians is worth the listen.  This self proclaimed anti slut shaming podcast will have you screaming hell yeah and laughing your a$$ off at the same time.

5. How I Built This with Guy Raz

Ever wanted to know how RXBar got started?  What about Wholefoods? Wonder no more, because NPRs How I Built This dives into the stories of how some of the most well known companies were built.

Tell her story!

By Cristin Van Horn, Edgewater Studio Manager

Making HERstory. March is Women’s History Month. So this month we are celebrating US. From the suffrage movement to the Women’s March on Washington, WE have been using our STRENGTH, our VOICE, and our POWER to DO amazing things and make the world a more KICKA$$ place. Let’s take this month to celebrate all the BADA$$ women who paved the way for our achievements, and for our fellow ROCKSTAR females who are currently playing their part in making HERstory.


Dolla Dolla Bills Y’all

Hey ya know what sucks?  That women still aren’t making the same amount as men in the workforce. So, in honor of International Women’s Day, we will be discounting all of our in store merchandise.  On March 8th, all of our Jane DO gear will be 21% off. Take that gender wage gap!

DO what you love!

dowhatyoulove.png

By Cristin van horn, edgewater studio manager

What lights your fu*king soul on fire?  Have you done it least once this week? WHY NOT?

This month, filled with hearts and love letters, we urge you to start DOing what you love FOR YOU!  This doesn’t mean you have to quit your job, leave your husband, and move to India for a year- Eat, Pray, Love, style.  (But hey, if you want to, we are all for it!)

DOing what you love can simply mean to spend a little more time doing what lights you up!  Get back to painting. Find time to read. Dust off the piano keys or camera or hiking boots or makeup brushes or whatever!

...Not all of us have found our passion yet, and that’s OK!  DOing what you love can be as simple as finding time to share a cup of coffee with a girlfriend, or finally taking a day off.  Real life is REAL, but finding and more importantly CREATING JOY in your life right now, is just as important as paying your bills and helping your kids with their homework.

Take the time NOW to DO more of whatever it is that turns you on...no we don’t mean in the bedroom...although ‘tis the season for that too.

She's a GOALDIGGER

By Cristin Van Horn, Edgewater Studio Manager

She’s a GOAL DIGGER, way over town.  Who digs on me…


Hey GOAL DIGGERS, we want you to dig on us this January!  At Jane we believe that together, not only can we set new goals for ourselves, but that we can crush the SH*T out of them.  

You are a GOAL DIGGER if you’re not afraid to put in the work to reach your full potential.

You are a GOAL DIGGER if you aren’t scared to roll up your sleeves and get a little dirty in order to get what you want.

You are a GOAL DIGGER if you don’t care about anyone else’s definition of success, because you are too busy DO-ing YOU and finding your truth!

Alone we are strong, but together we are fucking unstoppable!  Make this year YOUR year by being a GOAL DIGGER with us!

Dig deeper within yourself to set and crush your goals.  Dig deeper in the studio to gain strength and confidence.  Dig deeper at work to crash through that glass ceiling. Dig deeper in your friendships and relationships to make bigger, better, brighter memories.  

Join us for the JANEuary challenge, where TOGETHER we will inspire, motivate, challenge, and commit to being and DO-ing more in 2019.

Lessons learned dancing with the Radio City Rockettes

By Jacey & Dani, your founding sisters and a$$ kickers

Hey Janes!
Jacey and Dani here to kick off the holiday season by sharing some lessons we learned dancing with the Radio City Rockettes

Surround yourself with strong ass women
As a precision dance team, you are only as strong as your weakest link.  The same goes for the tribe you surround yourself with everyday.  Find a team of women that are encouraging, honest, and give you the confidence to keep DOing. 


Attention to detail

What distinguishes the Rockettes from other dance groups is the uniformity that comes from the attention to detail. Honing in on the small stuff can set up apart from the rest.  We all know a little bit goes a long way and refining your attention to detail can give you that extra edge.    


All that planning and shit stills goes wrong 
Despite striving for perfection, the most memorable moments were the ones when things unexpectedly went wrong.  Whether it was a shoe flying off during a kick line or part of the set getting stuck off stage, these moments are the ones we still talk about today.  Embrace the imperfections life throws at you and roll with the unexpected cards you are handed.

Happy Holidays!
Jacey & Dani

POWER POSE

girls.jpg

Jane DO encourages women to stand together in their POWER POSE. Stand beside each other to empower one another, behind each other to support one another, and when needed, in front of each other to guide one another. We know that together, the strength of women is UNBREAKABLE. This is why we #POWERPOSE 👑💪🏼

Check out some of our Janes in their best #POWERPOSE!


Say no to the sorority squat!

Be sure to show us your #powerpose! Tag us @janedo and use the hashtag #WEAREJANE so we can see it! We will be reposting our faves every week!

Let's Hear it For the Boys

By Cristin Van Horn, Edgewater Studio Manager

mustache.png

As the saying goes, “a man is only as strong as the woman who stands behind him.” Here at Jane, we prefer to think that we are standing right next to the men in our lives, to support them as much as they support us. So this month, LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE BOYS!

As you may know, this month has begun to align with a movement surrounding men’s health awareness and cancer prevention.  You may have heard of No-Shave November, where men are encouraged to showcase their mustaches for a good cause. Movember is the leading charity dedicated to changing men’s health, including prostate and testicular cancer awareness and prevention, mental health, and suicide prevention among men.  Basically Movember is super cool and Jane thinks they are awesome. Since we are boy crazy, we wanted to team up with them.

Jane is excited to share with you our Jane DUDE campaign.  Jane DUDE is our exclusive line of men’s apparel, for the Jane DUDEs in our lives.  


But who is Jane DUDE?

The men who love us, the men who challenge us, and the brave men who work out right beside us are all Jane DUDE. A man who knows that supporting the women in his office only elevates his team, is a Jane DUDE.  A partner who admires your drive and passion at home and also at work is a Jane DUDE. A father/brother/best friend who is there to help you anytime you need him, from apartment moves to career moves is a Jane DUDE.  

Snag our custom Jane DUDE t-shirt for the men in your life this month and all proceeds go to the Movember foundation.  Not only will your dude be rocking some cool duds and making a difference while DO-ing it, he will be reminded that he is only as strong as the badass women by his side.    



Live Your Breast Life

By Cristin Van Horn, Edgewater Studio Manager


Hey Janes, this month’s newsletter is about your GIRLS… the ones in your sports bra.  Knockers, tatas, jugs, or bee stings, we are celebrating your breasts this month!

October is breast cancer awareness month, so get comfortable with your girls!  And while breast cancer cannot yet be prevented, early detection can save your life.  So, if you don’t give yourself breast exams yet...what are you waiting for?? Pour yourself a glass of wine and get to groping.  If you’re not quite sure the best way to self exam, just check out the guide in all our Jane DO showers! Doctors recommend giving yourself a quick check at least once a month, to really get to know your body, that way you can recognize any changes early on.  Mammograms can detect tumors even before you can feel them, so if you have concerns, or are over 40 you should be getting a yearly test.

But this month is about more than just breast exams and an excuse to wear pink, it’s about body awareness, taking charge of your feminine health, and celebrating your sisters.  October is filled with walks, marathons, and gatherings to support and uplift cancer survivors, their families, friends, and advocates. And shouldn’t we all be advocates for our bodies and boobies!  

So grab your girls (the ones down your shirt and in your circle) and get to walking, talking, and celebrating your health, happiness, and strength this October.

Want to get involved? Jane DO will be leading the warm up for the entire Hudson County walk which will be taking place on October 28th at 10am in Lincoln Park. If you want to join our team for the Making Strides against Breast Cancer walk, sign up here. Create a login, join the walk, and search “Jane DO” under teams. We hope to see you there!

We are also selling tanks and a portion of sales will go to our team fundraiser for the Making Strides Walk! Get yours here.

Jane's Book Club - Fall Reads 2018.

The-Handmaids-Tale.jpg

1. The Handmaid's Tale, Margaret Atwood. 
Recommended by Jacey Lambros & Taylor Green

Offred is a Handmaid in the Republic of Gilead. She may leave the home of the Commander and his wife once a day to walk to food markets whose signs are now pictures instead of words because women are no longer allowed to read. She must lie on her back once a month and pray that the Commander makes her pregnant, because in an age of declining births, Offred and the other Handmaids are valued only if their ovaries are viable. Offred can remember the years before, when she lived and made love with her husband, Luke; when she played with and protected her daughter; when she had a job, money of her own, and access to knowledge. But all of that is gone now... Buy the book here.

2. Give A Sh*t, Ashlee Piper.
Recommended by an Edgewater Client! 

It's time to put your good intentions into action. It's time to give a shit -- about your health, your footprint, and your planet. Give a Sh*t guides you through the transition to a kinder, healthier, more conscious, and sustainable life like no book has done before. With a humorous and nonjudgmental tone, savvy eco-friendly lifestyle expert Ashlee Piper walks you through easy-but-impactful shifts anyone can make to live and be better every damn day: 
In your home - Room-by-room guidance and tactics for a chic, affordable, sustainable living space, no matter where or how you live.
In the kitchen - 20+ unfussy, quick, and delicious plant-based recipes for every life occasion, from pantry staples like White Witch Almond Milk to exciting everyday fare like Walnut Chorizo Tostadas to kick-ass desserts like Jamocha Silk Pie.
In your closet - Advice for building a polished, ethical wardrobe in a world of fast fashion
In the mirror - Beauty and grooming tips and DIY products (from skin care to foundation to, ahem, ladytime provisions) that are safer, natural, cruelty-free, and, best of all, effective.
In the wild - How to maintain your values (and your moxie) at work, in your social life, and when abroad. Give a Sh*t isn't a manual of restrictions -- it's a practical handbook that meets you where you are and finally harmonizes doing good with living well.

3. Primates of Park Avenue, Wednesday Martin.
Recommended by Sai Somboon

Like an urban Dian Fossey, Wednesday Martin decodes the primate social behaviors of Upper East Side mothers in a brilliantly original and witty memoir about her adventures assimilating into that most secretive and elite tribe. Intelligent, funny, and heartfelt, Primates of Park Avenue lifts a veil on a secret, elite world within a world: the exotic, fascinating, and strangely familiar culture of privileged Manhattan motherhood.

4. Sharp Objects, Gillian Flynn.
Recommended by Margaret Barschow

Fresh from a brief stay at a psych hospital, reporter Camille Preaker faces a troubling assignment: she must return to her tiny hometown to cover the murders of two preteen girls. For years, Camille has hardly spoken to her neurotic, hypochondriac mother or to the half-sister she barely knows: a beautiful thirteen-year-old with an eerie grip on the town. Now, installed in her old bedroom in her family's Victorian mansion, Camille finds herself identifying with the young victims—a bit too strongly. Dogged by her own demons, she must unravel the psychological puzzle of her own past if she wants to get the story—and survive this homecoming. Buy the book here.


Back to Werk

By Cristin Van Horn, Edgewater Studio Manager

September marks the unofficial start of a brand new year- the kids go back to school, we have to stop taking Summer Fridays, and the appropriate time to start drinking is no longer 11 am. As the days get shorter and the air gets cooler, you may find yourself missing your carefree beach bum mentality, but instead of letting yourself feel the summertime sadness, grab your P.S.L. and let the fall help you RECHARGE and RESET.  

September happens to be Self-Improvement month, so take this time to get back to yourself and revisit the goals you may have let fall to the wayside during the summer heat.  

Self-improvement can also mean self-care, so now’s the perfect time to put in some low-lights, get a facial, and get back to wearing your favorite burgundy nail shade.

Check out our studio schedules to get back into your workout groove and don’t be afraid to set some new fitness goals for yourself.  Try a new class, new instructor, or pick up a heavier set of weights for a new challenge. If you took the summer off, now is the time to get back on track with your old healthy habits!  

We’d love to see you get your a$$ back in class, but remember, self-improvement is about more than just your biceps.  Check out our reading list to spark your brain power. If books aren’t your thing, there are plenty of podcasts and TED-Talks that are bound to quench your inner nerd and reignite some office motivation.  Check out Dani and Jacey’s favorite podcast on Spotify “How I Built This."

This time of year is also a really great time to try something new, like a new hobby.  There are plenty of adult classes that start back up in September, so no matter what your interests are, you are sure to find something this fall.  From photography to wine tasting- this is the month to jump in and give your spirit, social life, and soul some self-love.

Still not excited to get the fall ball rolling?  Luckily, Starbucks release their P.S.L, Chumpkin Latte (chai and pumpkin), and Caramel Apple Cider on September 1st...so if nothing else, at least there’s that!

don't worry, beach happy!

By Cristin Van Horn, Edgewater Studio manager

And just like that, the summer is ⅔ of the way over.  Your inner child is screaming WAIIITTTTT  I haven’t even been to the beach yet!!  We hear you, but before you let those summertime blues creep in,  here are some ideas, that even the busiest among us will be able to squeeze in before the leaves change orange and our FROZÉ becomes a Pumpkin Spiced Martini.  

beachhappyt.png

For the Work all Week then Adventure on the Weekend type:
You work hard during the week, you deserve to get away for a few days.  These are some of our favorite weekend adventures.

  • See how beautiful New York State really is, with a weekend in the Catskill Mountains.  From breathtaking waterfall hikes to tasty wineries, the Catskills are for everyone in your group.
     
  • If you make it there, check out Dani’s favorite spot Scribner’s Catskill Lodge.  If that’s just a bit too far, try a day hike and dip in the lake at the beautiful and dog-friendly Ramapo Valley County Reservation.
     
  • If you are less of lake and more of an ocean girl, GET YOUR ASS DTS (down the shore for those of you who are living under a rock).  New Jersey literally has dozens of amazing beach towns to choose from. Not a big drinker? Spend the weekend in the gorgeous South Jersey family town of Ocean City and grab a slice at the world famous Manco and Manco.  Want something a little closer to home? Take the girls to Spring Lake or Long Branch for the day.  If you make it to Long Branch, stop at Max’s Hot Dogs...it never tasted so good to be bad!  And don’t forget your hangover cure from Rook Coffee for the drive home!

   

For the Busy Can’t Get Away For A Weekend type:
