New heights: Yoga on a helipad

If you’re afraid of heights, helicopters, or are still mastering your tree pose—this class is not for you. But those looking to take their practice to new heights won’t have it better.

Serene Social, the cool women’s wellness community that brings you summertime yoga with Freedom Tower views on the James Hotel rooftop in New York City, is now offering yoga on a helipad in Los Angeles. It has views of, well, everything.

The series, which kicks off at the end of June at the Loews Hotel and newly expanded Exhale Spa in Hollywood, is taught 20 stories up, during sunset. Classes are Sunday, cost $45 per class for non-members and $35 for members, and cap at 12 people. All the better for a safe perimeter, we’re thinking.

“The views are extraordinary and you’re surrounded by this vast openness—you don’t see bars, barriers, or limits. It felt like a dream when the opportunity came to us,” says Erin Ralph, co-founder of Serene Social, which is also launching a weekly session in London at the super chic Coq D’Argent rooftop.
