LaLaScoop, in partnership with Andiamo Body (LaLa Lady Rochelle Robinson’s super fitness company), hosted a yoga series at the eco-friendly Ambrose Hotel in Santa Monica this summer and fall. The Ambrose is the first LEED for Existing Buidings (EB) certified hotel in the country since 2008. Fellow yogis were treated to complimentary classes with Rochelle’s charismatic personality. Her soulful classes come from intense yoga and fitness training. As the sun dipped below the horizon in the Santa Monica hotel courtyard, this well trained yogi left us feeling a sense of calm after her candlelit sessions under the stars and palm trees.
Each yoga session included all abilities with basic stretching, toning, and balancing moves with options to enhance your practice with more challenging positions. Rochelle’s gentle touch at the end of each class helped you feel at peace, while the soft background music composed by her boyfriend lured us into a Zen-like trance.
After bonding with fellow Angelenos, guests were given complimentary Voss water to start followed by a post workout nosh session with appetizer bites and cheese platters from the Ambrose Hotel. Yummy in your tummy Lucky Buddha Beer and our favorite red, Ziobaffa wine organically grown and imported from Italy, were a fun way to toast the end of each weekday night session.
