Living in Los Angeles, we are used to hearing about different ways we can better ourselves. With so many options, it can often have the opposite effect and be quite overwhelming. However, Open offers a solution to that.
“We’re increasingly understanding meditation as part of a solution to our modern day maladies. But the popular notion of meditative practice remains narrow. Millions of meditators today are still sitting alone in their living rooms, peeking at the clock, wondering if it’s ‘working’ yet.” says Open, “But as mindfulness continues to grow in popularity, we’re seeking new ways to deepen, expand, and explore the practice.”
This mixed modality app and studio uses traditional practices—but with an added twist. What sets them apart is that they combine meditation, yoga, breathwork, and music together. Yes, even music! Throughout your meditative experience, there is music playing to guide you through your wellness journey.
“Our approach grounds the experience in your senses,” they state. “Using music, sound, breath, and movement to interrupt the chatter in our minds and anchor in the here and now.”
Benefits Of Open Breathwork And Meditation:

The amazing thing about Open is that you don’t have to be an L.A. local to enjoy them. No matter where you are, you can have access to their practices and teachers right through the Open App. The classes are live so you can interact with the teachers and fellow students directly. Don’t worry if you don’t know where to start. Their app offers a survey so you can set your goals and find out what class is right for you.
If you are in the area, their studio is located in Venice where their doors are open to all. After the class, you are welcome to make new friends while enjoying tea on their rooftop with a beach view. As Open teacher Ally Maz puts it, “Open is all about becoming present, together.”
Take it from us: no matter how you experience Open, one guarantee is that you’ll leave their class with a new-found sense peace and clarity. It’s something that you need to feel for yourself to believe it. If you’re interested in Open and their amazing wellness classes, they’re having a June challenge that also offers a 14-day free trial.
