Online Wellness Community, InnerRewards launches local guru advice on spa deals, best restaurants, outdoor exercise tips, new yoga studios, and more for locations across the U.S.

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) June 3, 2009 — News Facts:
InnerRewards, Your Guide to Living Well, launches brand-new Local Insider Guides for cities such as Dallas, Miami, Chicago, Tucson, New York, Los Angeles, Atlanta, and Seattle. Women interested in living healthier can find local tips, insider advice, and advice from gurus and peers. Many InnerRewards gurus are yoga instructors; massage therapists, salon owners, or women in the know. The brand new release of Local Insider Guides enables members to get the insider scoop on the best Yoga studios, newest beauty salons, sign up for wellness retreats and spa days, discover the best places to run, find healthy and organic eats, and much more. Local gurus start discussions and lead the way, but all members of the community can participate, create their own “top 10 lists,” and help others live healthy and well.

Helping People Live Healthier Lives
Local community groups, particularly those around health and wellness can help people live healthier lives, and make better decisions about nutritious food, exercise choices, and reducing stress. “Not only are social support and camaraderie in the community good for our souls, they also exert a positive influence on our physical health and wellbeing. There is some very convincing research about the health benefits of strong social ties and social safety nets,” says Dr. Christina Economos, an InnerRewards contributing author.

Members Can Take Over a City
The Local Insider Guide can be professionally described as a geography and community-centric micro-blogging platform, and all InnerRewards members can participate and contribute to the local guide blog, top 10 lists, add photos and soon videos, and write posts about things they love to do in their location. Members can now write articles, stories, and create full-blown guides on what to do or little-known city facts. Members will soon be able to add their own city. Members are empowered to contribute to thousands of other people passionate about living a healthy life. This is the first time a Website enables a community to formally share their expertise and tips on wellness, wellbeing, and helping to guide others to live healthier. Members become bloggers, authors, and gurus, taking user generated content to the next level.
