An update on the Sender One Westwood bouldering gym

We’re excited to announce that after 2 years of delays from COVID and city permitting, construction on our Westwood bouldering gym is finally underway. Just as UCLA students are returning to campus this fall, we’re making progress on turning the Mann Festival Theatre, which closed back in 2009, into a beautiful climbing gym. 

Sender One Westwood will feature 10,000 square feet of climbing, yoga, and fitness. This space will even include an upstairs mezzanine dedicated to climbing-specific training, including equipment like adjustable training boards.  

Progress in building up this gym is especially meaningful, as our CEO and co-founder Alice Kao (UCLA ‘01) fondly remembers watching movies at the Mann Festival Theatre during her time as a student. With these nostalgic memories, her excitement for the new gym opening is mixed with some sadness in seeing the historic theatre go. 

We are so proud and feel fortunate to have the opportunity to be part of the growth of Westwood Village while building up the future of rock climbing as a community and as a sport. Follow along for more updates via our website and social media platforms. For more information and Sender One Westwood, visit this article from the UCLA newsroom and this blog post!

Join Sender One in celebrating National Yoga Month!

Yoga originated thousands of years ago and has grown to be widely practiced all over the world. In 2008, the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (N.C.C.I.H.) designated September as National Yoga Awareness month to highlight the many physical and mental benefits of yoga. From increased flexibility to stress relief to improved heart health, yoga's benefits are too many to count!

Yoga is also for everyone! Many types of yoga are practiced today and are available here at Sender One. Whether you're into a low-key Yin class, or balancing a friend on your feet in Acro Yoga, there's a yoga offering that fits your speed.

To celebrate the joys and benefits of yoga, we are excited to announce this year's National Yoga Month Challenge! Throughout this month, take as many Sender One yoga and fitness classes as you can for a chance to win some awesome prizes!

To start, you'll earn a free guest pass for every 5 classes you take! Take ten? Two passes!

For our top yogis, the prizes get even cooler:

First place winners at SNA and LAX will receive a 1 month free membership and mug. Second place winners will receive a Manduka mat and mug. Third through fifth place winners will each receive a Sender One mug.

September's truly the month to discover what a new yoga routine could do for your life. See you in the yoga studio soon!
