Wanderlust Hollywood


If there’s one city in the world that loves a wellness centre it’s clean-living, kale-munching Tinsel Town. The Lululemon-clad lovelies of LA are positively spoilt for choice when it comes to downward dogs and detox juices – just think back to Downtown’s The Springs.


But now the city has a game-changing, lean green queen in the form of Wanderlust Hollywood, a 10,000-sq-ft tri-level oasis for yoga, mindfulness and guilt-free munchables.


The first permanent incarnation of the ‘lifestyle festival’ events of the same name, Wanderlust is a world of serene spaces dominated by a sized-up studio known as The Greatest Place. Here flexi folk of all levels can work on their sun salutations in hourly classes that cover everything from simple sitting meditation to the most advanced pretzel-like poses.


But the feel-good fun doesn’t stop after you’ve merely aligned body and mind. This health haven also offers some retail respite in the form of a svelte store selling Spiritual Gangster workout wear and Veronica Rose healing jewellery. Then there’s the perf patio-sided all-day cafe with ethically farmed coffee and seasonal veg-centric pickings crafted by awarded chef Seamus Mullen.


And the perfect spot for a quick post-sup sip? The members-only speakeasy dubbed ‘The Library’ where you can indulge in a well-earned gargle. Wander-ful!
