My favorite place to shop is The Social Club - a true gem here in the Arts District! I love to stop in when I need a gift for any occasion and always tend to find a little something for myself.

Nourished Food Bar is my go-to for workday lunches or a feel-good fix! Over the years, I've grown in friendship with owners Jamie and Lindsey Conway by dropping in the food bar each week. They are both a wealth of knowledge when it comes to nourishing food and the goodness it adds to our lives. If you have the chance to stop in, I recommend the golden milk smoothie.

 P L A Y 
Myriad Botanical Gardens is a few blocks east of the studio and my go-to for a mid-day walk or weekend picnic with friends. In fact, it's so close in proximity to the studio we take many field trips to the gardens with our students for outdoor activities and adventures.
