We're one month into 2017... Hooray! So, be honest: How are those New Year’s resolutions treating you? If they include “getting your wellness on” with yoga and meditation; good for you. I’m a kundalini addict myself and vouch for meditation as the best darn habit you can make; the only one that can help you BREAK the bad ones.
To help you stay on the right track, here are my favorite resources in both NYC and LA, plus a roundup of some truly adorable gear and even FREE leggings to keep you motivated for the next 11 months and beyond...
Stay zen friends!
Wanderlust Hollywood - This Instagram worthy yoga studio goes beyond vinyasa basics with kundalini, The Class by Taryn Toomey, meditations and sound baths - plus an organic cafe and wifi for those who want to plug in before tuning out.
Playlist Yoga - A different take on yoga vibes… Less nose rings and printed pants, more snapback caps and sneakers; these classes are fueled by a beat to keep you pumped. Think SoulCycle without the bike.
Liberation Yoga - Take advantage of LA’s perfect weather and do your downward dogs in a magical garden. Worth the trek to Inglewood, this happy-hippie studio also offers bodywork like reiki and massage.
Golden Bridge - No frills, just magic. Be prepared to get weird with some serious Kundalini practices, and learn how to breathe like you’ve never breathed before. Bye bye bad vibes!
Medi Club - Sign up to one of the biggest social meditation movements around. Medi club is wildly popular, and their monthly meetings typically feature organic treats, musicians and unique techniques, plus a chance to mingle with like minded meditators.
