why we love Silver Lake


Silver Lake CaliforniaIs it Silver Lake or Silverlake? Who knows. All we know is that we love it here!

Why Silver Lake? Because this place is special! After moving to LA from the suburbs of Detroit, MI we were searching for a place that felt like home. A place that had heart, soul, creativity and community. We found it. In a city like LA we are so grateful to have found a place with the best of everything – great hiking, awesome city living, less than horrendous traffic, a place where the people are real(er) and there is always something to do (yoga?). The perfect place for our yoga home!
