Nestled on a rare quiet corner along the major Fairfax thoroughfare, Hyperslow is a refuge for those looking to experience life at a slower pace. Offering yoga, meditation, and a cafe stocked with locally grown, organic, and simple fare, this community studio is a one-stop-shop to enjoy a day of reflection, community, and kindness.
Born from a dream, Hyperslow is the collaborative effort of partners Emily Davenport and Asher Luzzatto. From his experience at Burning Man’s Center Camp — a throwback to the communal sacred spaces of churches and community centers — Asher felt a desire to create a space where people could congregate, interact, and most importantly, connect. A student can come to the cafe, enjoy simple foods like fresh avocado, meet friends, and take yoga or meditation. After class, they can float out, lounge on any one of Hypeslow’s eclectic repurposed couches or sit at the decadently long communal dining table to enjoy art, work, and/or great conversation.
Not only does the Hyperslow studio in Hollywood have a café, yoga and meditation studio, they also offer an R&D space for entrepreneurs and artists to work in-house with a gallery space to feature their wares. “We hope to incubate a space for health and wellness companies as well as a place where creatives can connect and collaborate,” says Asher. Pop-up gallery shows, movie and documentary screenings, and live acoustic blues concerts are just a few of the events on Hyperslow’s recent calendar.
“You give the world a blank slate and they fill it in,” says Asher. “We’re happy painting the background.”
A dreamer’s delight and a free spirit’s urban oasis, Hyperslow is a breath of long, fresh, and luxurious air. “If we spend as much time slowing down as we do speeding up, we will achieve the beauty we seek.” Yes, indeed. For more information, visit hyperslow.com.
