Catherine Aldana: yoga instructor at Equinox
“I love Essie’s ‘Ole Caliente’ [nail polish] because it looks good on my skin tone—particularly in the summer, when I tend to be tanner.”
“Everyone lotion from Whole Foods is my go-to moisturizer for everything—face, body, hands, and especially my feet. I love the citrus and mint scent, and enjoy how the lotion itself is gentle and light, yet extremely hydrating. It also dries off really fast, which is important when I’m getting ready in the morning, and putting on super tight workout pants every day.”
“If I get my nails done, I go to Colorful Nails in Lincoln Park. Colorful Nails offers a deal for a $28 mani-pedi Monday through Thursday and they do a good, fast job—which I appreciate.”
What about yoga keeps you on your toes?
“Teaching yoga for a living literally keeps me on my toes because I'm always running around from studio to studio on every form of transportation. Also, practicing a handstand definitely requires a lot of jumping off your toes! Yoga is what motivates me every day to get things done, take care of myself, and enjoy everything that comes my way.”
