Greener BeeGreen LivingNew dating app matches the meditating, green living, ‘conscious eating’ crowd

A new studio replaces a former institution on the yoga scene; a day of fitness with L.A.’s hottest trainers; and a dating app for people into all things good for you. Here’s what needs to be on your radar.

Yoga for the mind and spirit

Mandala occupies the Santa Monica space that once belonged to the Golden Bridge Yoga Center, which focused on kundalini yoga. The new studio, which had its soft opening May 19, has extensive offerings such as yoga for healthy backs and chanting 101, with emphasis on yoga for the body, mind and spirit.

“It’s important that the practice is taught in a holistic way,” said co-founder Saul David Raye. “It’s not just a physical practice for a healthy and fit body, but for mental and emotional healing as well.”

Meet-ups app devoted to the mind

After recently receiving $1.8 million in seed money, 2-year old Denver-based dating app MeetMindful is expanding into multiple markets, including Los Angeles. The app seeks to match singles who are interested in meditation, green living and “conscious eating.”

“It’s common on most dating apps to just throw out some photos and tweetable text,” said founder and Chief Executive Amy Baglan. “We wanted to put the intention back in dating.” Los Angeles has the the second-highest concentration of people on the site after Denver, and most potential matches are between 35 and 55.

Basic membership is free. Premium membership ranges from $9 to $29 a month, depending on length. Info: meetmindful.com
