Adding a Den

Since it opened last year, the Den Med­i­ta­tion Stu­dio on La Brea Av­enue and 4th Street has drawn a steady stream of yoga and mind­ful­ness buffs to its all-day classes. Owner Tal Rabi­nowitz has just opened a new Den in Stu­dio City. The 2,000-square-foot space fea­tures an in­te­rior made from re­claimed wood and brick; guests can help them­selves to the gen­er­ous tea and cof­fee bar, and lounge in a read­ing cor­ner stacked with mo­ti­va­tional and in­spir­ing books. Classes in­clude a “Lunchtime De­tox” or an end-of-day “Hap­pi­ness” ses­sion.

Info: $23 per class. Pack­ages avail­able. New cus­tomers can pay $50 for 21 days of classes, plus three special work­shops. 12323 Ven­tura Blvd.; (818) 856-8303. den­med­i­ta­
