At first, We had an impulse to keep this retreat all to ourselves, and yet, we’d love to see you there.
One of our favorite L.A. hotels, the Santa Monica Proper, is hosting a weekend retreat with wellness coach and yoga instructor, Kim Strother. And we’ve got one free ticket to ride!
the Details: Before quarantine, our team nearly lived in The Proper’s stunning lobby bar, whipping up stories in editorial meetings over a mezze platter and over-priced (but worth it!) iced lattes. It’s one of the most stylish new buildings in the city, inside and out, designed by former Guest Editor, Kelly Wearstler and the new home to one of our favorite wellness experiences, Surya Spa.
On June 8 and 9, the hotel is hosting A Proper Reset, a 24-hour wellness retreat at Santa Monica Proper. One lucky Chalkboard reader will win all the Proper Reset includes below (travel not included).
