This Week in Wellness: SurfSet returns to Chelsea Piers, Neti pot warning, and more

SurfSet at Chelsea Piers!

Welcome to our weekly roundup of wellness news we’ve spotted and reported throughout the week. Our Page Six!

Summer may be fading into fall, but you won’t have to stop surfing anytime soon. SurfSet is bringing its classes back to the Sports Center at Chelsea Piers starting September 17, with a four-week surf camp and drop-in classes.

After class, you can stop at the brand-new mini Greenmarket Cart for Chelsea’s Table debuting September 9. The cart will sell fresh, local veggies, fruits, meats, honey, and maple syrup on Sundays in September from 8:00 a.m.– 4:00 p.m.

According to the NY Times, the FDA issued new neti pot warnings, telling users to use distilled or filtered water. The warnings were in response to two deaths last year from a rare but deadly brain infection.
