You are reborn with the roses every Spring ~ Juan Ramon Jimenez.
As we emerge from Covid, Malibu is the perfect place to celebrate Spring! California’s beautiful wildflowers are blooming in the nearby Santa Monica Mountains. Start getting beach-ready by taking a lovely hike or doing a challenging, invigorating workout with celebrity trainer Neda Soderqvist, Creator of Juicy Athletic Moves (JAM) Malibu @jammalibu. Neda combines pilates, strength training, and dance into her sessions. You can also catch Neda on her SLYDE app for a great workout. Can’t get in the groove to focus on working out? Try Strong. Confident. Living. & flip any manifesting mistakes with Laura & Scott St. John. Featured in SHAPE and Women’s Health, the dynamic duo inspires fitness and health, starting with your perspective.
Don’t know where to start? Do you feel completely out of shape, and are you fighting Covid-fat? For a private/semi-private/small-group workout, contact Coach Jennifer at (818) 262-1711.
Or, be your best self by looking inward. Be introspective and nurture your inner beauty. Glamifornia Style Lounge supports local Malibu businesses as they collaborate to celebrate Spring. Real Coconut Kitchen and The Mindry are hosting a guided conscious cleanse to renew your mind, body, and spirit.
