Discovering East Hollywood

Jan 24th, 2024 oddfam Blog, Community

This is a tale of new beginnings. As you know, ODD Silver Lake moved to East Hollywood in December of 2023. Why, one may ask? The simple answer is that a lease ended, and a new door (and chapter for ODD) opened. The yogic answer: we accepted that the nature of nature is change and embraced what lay beyond the horizon. While Silver Lake will always be founder Jessica Rosen's first ODD baby, the new space, nestled a half-block from the intersection of Hollywood & Western (hello, easy public transportation and access to neighboring communities like Los Feliz, Hollywood proper, Franklin Village, and more!), offers so much to discover and love.

The new space is everything; you'll have to stop by yourself to see what I’m talking about. I'm East Hollywood's location coordinator, and I'm new to LA (and East Hollywood), so I'm also learning as I go. Spending so much time at the studio and in the neighborhood has been exciting! Getting to know the area and its inhabitants while discovering what this vibrant community has to offer has been so fun!

The best part? We are in the heart of Thai Town! Did you know that Los Angeles is home to the largest Thai community outside of Asia? Some pretty impressive historic landmarks nearby are also an absolute must if you're killing time between classes, showing visitors a good time, or just looking for new things to do in a neighborhood with which you may not be very familiar.

Do you like music as much as our yoga teachers? The historic Greek Theatre is located within Griffith Park – a mere 10-minute drive from the studio. After you CHILL with Dylan, MEDITATE with Emma, UNWIND with Elisa, get FIT with Eduardo, or chat with me about your next transformative yoga workshop, touch up at our refresh station and head out to one of our top picks for the best things to eat, drink, and enjoy in and around East Hollywood, even if you’ve been before – especially if you've been before! You can never try something just once.
