Westsiders, rejoice: a hub for all things healthy (à la Wanderlust Hollywood or The Springs) is now a freeway-free drive away in Los Angeles. Meaning you can get in on the all-in-one wellness refuge trend without a dose of traffic stress first. (Woot.)
Venice’s brand new 30Fifteen studio is that inspired offering. It has an ambitious menu full of fitness classes (yoga, Pilates, and Yogalates), plus massage therapy, energy healing, meditation, tarot readings, and workshops, all nestled in a secret garden-style space off Electric Avenue. (Perhaps the only thing missing is a café to grab your post-class green juice—but who needs one when Abbot Kinney is just steps away?)
The space doubles as the US showroom for British activewear brand 30Fifteen, but you wouldn’t necessarily know it—there’s no retail component, and founder Emily Tonkin, who attended LA’s Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, intends to keep it that way.
“I’m trying to offer as many tools as possible to empower women so they feel good going out into the world and doing what they love,” she explains. “Everything starts from the inside, and the studio is an expression of that… retail isn’t what I was looking for.”
The studio shares its garden with two other businesses that are also all about girl power: women’s co-working space One Roof (an Australian transplant) and Good Enough Therapist Dana Maloney. You’ll also likely see some of Venice’s top yoga instructors roaming the grounds before their classes, including Courtney Harms, Arielle McFadden, and Mandi Vazquez (who you may recognize from Instagram).
On weekends the space will host workshops and special events—like an upcoming Valentine’s Day session on self-love and self-care—as well as, perhaps, some global outposts of the 30Fifteen studio brand. “My dream is to have three spaces—one in LA, one in London, and one in Dubai,” says Tonkin.
“LA is the center of the universe. People are looking at it for celebrities, for pop culture, for trends. And if I can make this work in LA, I can definitely replicate it.” —Erin Magner
