Rooftop Yoga at Alo Yoga

The Alo store in Beverly Hills has the most beautiful rooftop yoga studio and offers yoga classes daily. Don’t worry, half of the studio is enclosed and the other half has an awning to shield you from the summer sun. But the entire space gets a glorious breeze and feels like the outdoors. The most exciting part is that AKT is going to start holding our weekly LA Happy Hour there in the fall! Shop around their gorgeous workout clothes or hang out in their lounge area after class. Enjoy cold brew on tap, Kombucha or Stumptown (a personal favorite)!

I love all of their locations but go to the new Beverly Hills location most often. And it just happens to be right across the street from Alo! It’s probably my favorite restaurant in LA. Everything is organic, vegan and delicious! They have plenty of gluten-free options as well. It’s reasonably priced and the best part is that you place your order as an affirmation. My favorite is the “Glorious” with pesto added. It’s a tempeh caesar wrap with AMAZING coconut bacon. It’s sooo LA and I have to laugh at myself every time I order: “I am Glorious.”

Outdoor movies all over LA!

I’ve been meaning to go to one all summer and FINALLY went last week with a fabulous AKT client and friend. We saw Mean Girls in Pasadena and it was a blast. Bring low-back lawn chairs or yoga mats to sit on and blankets for when the sun goes does. There are food trucks and live music. Or you can bring your own picnic to ensure that you stay on track with your health and fitness goals. Definitely an LA summer must-do!
