Allomi. 1612 S Catalina Ave, Redondo Beach, CA 90277
Allomi is a mindfulness, yoga, rebounding, and dance studio which boasts jaw-dropping views. Located one block from the ocean with huge windows, the space is serene, brand new (since January 6), and arguably the most visually appealing of all South Bay studios. The “Allomi Moms” class started with 10 minutes of reflection, journaling and sharing and segued into an upbeat Plyojam dance workout and then into a tabata-based high intensity series which worked arms, legs, core, obliques and more. The studio emphasizes wellness classes with the notion that taking care of ourselves, both physically and mentally, enables us to better take care of our families.
PARKING: Immediately in front of the studio, metered parking is available for $1.50 per hour. Free parking can be available in the Avenues, a 3 to 6 minute walk from the studio.
