    Whether you’re a green juice junkie, a SoulCycle addict, or just trying to maintain a working relationship with your skinny jeans, healthy living is always in style. So we’ve tapped the wellness masterminds at Well+Good — the go-to-site for cool, healthy-leaning women coast to coast — to keep you in-the-know.

    With the boom of barre workouts from coast to coast, many of us have come to equate tushy-toning with tiny, concentrated movements.
