The best thing about Los Angeles is that it is perfect year-round for outdoor workouts. Unlike New York and Chicago where you barely manage to avoid frostbite rushing from the subway to your class, LA hosts various outside sweat sessions in the “coldest” months. I finally had the chance to try one of the most popular ones, yoga at the Roosevelt Hotel pool.

When Wanderlust opened a brick and mortar yoga mecca right down the street, I signed up on the listserv immediately. Little did I know, they would send everyone on the list a coupon for five free classes. SCORE! From yoga to meditation, breath work to “chillax”, Wanderlust has the most well rounded schedule I’ve seen at a yoga studio. Not to mention the space also offers a restaurant with seasonal food and fresh juices. You could easily spend the day there, and I hope to spend many days there.

Every Sunday when I’m looking for a class that’s going to rejuvenate me for the week to come, I stumble upon this hypnosis class. I don’t know about you, but the only experience I have with hypnosis is when the prom court got hypnotized for one of the spirit days. I remember some having to sit down because it wasn’t working and others dancing around per the instruction of the hypnotist. It kind of freaked me out but I’m all about trying everything once (that’s a lie…I’ve never tried mayonnaise). Continue reading

Us Angelenos—and I can say that now that I’ve been here exactly a year ;)—love to stay in the vicinity of our own neighborhoods. Venturing outside means dealing with traffic and parking, two things that induce way more anxiety than necessary. When I was going to be downtown for work, I decided to take advantage of this momentous occasion and book a class in the heart of Los Angeles. Continue reading
