WE’RE ALWAYS on the lookout for fresh new wellness-minded hotspots to introduce to our readers – the kinds of places that make us fall head-over-heels in health-land love and inspire us to up our wellness game just a little bit more than yesterday.
Our newest obsession is Wanderlust Hollywood. This all-inclusive wellness center slays when it comes to health on a holistic level. Brought to us by the folks behind the now-famous Wanderlust festivals (check out our inside peek here!), this space is a hybrid of a yoga studio, favorite restaurant, and hang-out hotspot all in one place. Alexa Gray of Super Food Super Life has the details on why we’re enamored with every nook and cranny of this new local fave…
Modern day life is jam packed, but we still want to take care of our mind, body and spirit. The new Wanderlust Hollywood lets us schedule all of our wellness needs into one day, bringing the best of yoga, meditation, food and community together under one roof. Wanderlust is a studio, restaurant and community space that is fresh, inviting and conscious. Here are five reasons we’re in love (and you will be, too):
5 REASONS WE LOVE THE NEW WANDERLUST HOLLYWOOD
The Fix is a vigorous 45-minute flow class and a straight-up shot of all the good stuff. Set to a kick-ass, carefully curated soundtrack, you will move, breathe and sweat, community style. This mashup of asana and pranayama yoga is radically fresh and you will leave feeling satisfied and fully fixated.
The center’s “Greatest Place,” an amazing brick studio, offers yoga, film screenings, farm-to-table dinners, jewelry making and more! You can also drop in for an eye-opening lecture or give one of your own with “The Speakeasy” talks. This is an ongoing lecture series that will take place on subjects pertaining to a mindful life. There’s always an inspiring lineup from prominent authors, yoga teachers, musicians, health experts, business leaders, filmmakers and more! It’s a chance to interact with, and learn from, some of the most engaging thinkers of our time.
Soulscape classes offers the integration of music with a microcosm of the Wanderlust Festival experience. These collaborations between incredible teachers and popular musicians/DJs range from soulful Sunday morning jams to high-energy evening extravaganzas. Beat aligns with breath and musical intensity aligns with flow. Come for the amazing yoga and masterful mixes, stay for the combustion of community.
Their meditation program is also a must-try. Be sure to book a “Mindful Morning” meditation class or a “Miracle Meditation” and leave with a clear and relaxed mind. All levels are welcome.
Nourish your body and brain with seasonal food, regional wines and beer, all curated by celebrated chef Seamus Mullen. Stop in for breakfast, lunch, happy hour and on-the-go food and drink.
Try the Forbidden Black Rice Bowl with steamed bok choy and coconut and yuzu vinaigrette for lunch. For breakfast, go for the savory breakfast tacos with heirloom corn tortillas, scrambled eggs, charred tomatillo and avocado. You can’t go wrong!
