Sweatheory

The newest addition to the infrared sauna scene in LA, this spa also offers IV drips and B12 shots. Book your own room complete with a personal infrared sauna and shower and sweat your way through a 60 minute session at 130F. Sweatheory recommends to start from 30-45 minutes and offers amenities like cayenne shots pre sweat to increase detoxification benefits and a mineral shot of magnesium and sea salt to restore electrolytes. The shop also offers meditation and card reading and sells all kinds of crystals, tonics and skincare. Their adjacent neighbor is Lifefood Organic where you can grab a juice or raw vegan meal post sweat.

The Den Meditation

360 S La Brea Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90036


A super cozy and inviting space reminiscent of a gypsy caravan. The Den offers a large variety of complimentary herbal teas you can grab along with a book of their shelf and curl up on the couch after your class. The studio also offers workshops, sound baths and drum circles.

Lifehouse Tonics and Elixirs

7515 Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90045


A different kind of juice bar, focused on highly curated superfoods and adaptogenic mushrooms. The menu consists of smoothies jam-packed with ingredients like reishi, cordyceps, acai and ashwaghanda, as well as tonics infused with rosehip, turmeric, charcoal and aloe. Try their superfood brownies and coconut yogurt, too!

Honey Hi

1620 Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90026

A new addition to the Echo Park food scene needs to be included for their well edited menu of local and seasonal ingredients. The cafe's attention to sourcing is incredible and the berries in my cashew parfait (made with homemade granola and an LA based yogurt company) were purchased at the Silverlake farmer's market. I will be back to try their grain bowls and smoothies.

Griffith Park

4730 Crystal Springs Dr, Los Angeles, CA 90027

One of my favorite hiking spots in the city for the best views of Los Angeles, the variety of paths and beautiful nature. You can experience different levels of intensity, forests and deserts all in one place. Not to mention, the Griffith Observatory and the Hollywood sign are some of LA's most notable landmarks.

Wanderlust

1357 Highland Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90028

This community center is the epicenter of all things wellness in Hollywood. The four story building houses a vegan friendly cafe, two yoga rooms, a clothing shop, a meditation space and a rooftop. Wanderlust is also responsible for hosting yoga festivals around the world as well as retreats and workshops. The space is constantly scheduling events, conferences and special lectures that are worth a visit.

Lassen's

1631 Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90026

This vegan friendly grocery store is the perfect spot to pick up your favorite nut cheese, kombucha and almond butter. They carry brands that are not found in other health stores in the city and they have their own line of prepared foods, smoothies and juices. Try their BLK Detox drink for a tasty charcoal lemonade remix.

Space Fifteen Twenty

1520 N Cahuenga Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90028

This trendy concept store by Urban Outfitters holds an art gallery, Free People store that sells FP Movement (super cute workout clothes) and a UO shop specializing in collaborations with everyone from Adidas and Moon Juice to Herbivore cosmetics. Their beauty shop is packed with all kinds of natural goodies like Korean face masks, coconut oil hair spray and vegan nail polish. 15/20 also organizes pop ups like flea markets and pumpkin carving workshops, so check their website for upcoming events.

Hollywood Farmer's Market

1600 Ivar Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90028

One of the biggest and most varied markets in all of LA, this one is not to be missed. From mushroom stalls selling varieties you haven't ever heard of, to raw sugar cane juice, prepared foods and every fruit imaginable. You can also find clothing and jewelry here from up and coming local brands. Every Sunday.
