The sweat set takes posing to a new level

Angeleno, October 2009

The two lithe ladies of the night who help Teddy’s scenesters get blitzed at the Hollywood Roosevelt are now inviting them to get blissed at their new yoga classes, held on weekend mornings just a few steps away in the property’s massage garden.  The A-list hub’s no-nonsense door gal Sarah Pachelli and cutthroat hotel beverage manager Tiff any Russo, both well-versed in the practice, offer classes at 10 o’clock on Saturdays and Sundays. Traditional vinyasa fl ow technique is paired with a cool-kid soundtrack (think Kings of Leon, Iggy Pop and Liz Phair). “It’s like daytime Teddy’s,” says Pachelli, who likes to trade downward-dog tips with friends and is such an enthusiast that she’s been known to play hangman with Sanskrit yoga pose words. Adds Russo of the pair’s unconventional approach: “I think the philosophy of yoga is so important, but it can scare people off . We’re about having fun and making it enjoyable. It spreads the word.” layogacollective.com. –Alexis Johnson
