The Power of WMN

Culver City’s enlightening new wellness retreat puts women at the center

Enlightened L.A. women have a new place to commune thanks to Venice doula Paula Mallis, a longtime leader of well-attended women’s circles timed with the moons, equinoxes and solstices, who recently opened WMN Space. It’s an intimate and light-filled center in Culver City—Moroccan rugs, French white oak floors, a shearling chair—for one-on-one and group classes and workshops dedicated to all things women’s wellness. Think prenatal yoga, somatic bodywork, ayurvedic healing therapies, yoni steams and birth prep. “I felt it was time to bring the work I was doing at home out into the world,” says Mallis, who curates apothecary offerings, too. “When we gather as women with intention and come from a loving, supportive place, magic happens.” 10764 Washington Blvd., Culver City, 310-570-9492; wmnspace.com.
