Snapchat Vacates Venice

Snapchat Vacates Venice

Another small business pushed out by Snap was Turning Point Pilates, whose previous studio on Abbot Kinney and Venice Boulevard was taken over by the tech-giant in 2015. Without giving a reason why, their landlord told Turning Point that they had to find a new location.

“It was much later I found out it was Snap as it became apparent Snap was scooping up tons of Venice real estate and I learned other business owners found themselves in the same predicament,” said Robin Solo, owner and founder of Turning Point Pilates. “I was a basket case for six-plus months trying to find a new studio home.

Thrive Global - Cut Your Inner Critic Loose: F#@% off Charlie!

The inner voice seems to take over our brain getting us to believe some pretty negative thoughts about ourselves. In the past my voice has assured me that I'm not lovable. I'm not pretty enough.  I'm not smart enough. I can't possibly do x, y or z. I can't possibly have what I want or my great idea is too difficult, or too time consuming, or who will take me seriously. Even as I write this, I hear a faint whisper calling "nobody will read this and your no authority." I say F#@% off Charlie

Sauvignon Planc - Footwork & Facials: An Interview with Robin Solo of Turning Point Pilates

A few weeks ago I had the awesome experience of taking my first EVER private Pilates session with Robin Solo, the owner of the awesome classical Pilates studio, Turning Point Pilates in Venice. I haven’t had private anything since I was 16 and went to a nutritionist, so I was a little nervous to be under such one-on-one scrutiny. Not to mention, I Wazed to the wrong address and parked 4 blocks away from it and ended up arriving a full 30 minutes late. #LAproblem

When and how did you first explore Pilates? I was working in commercial and film production for 12 years and at some point it wasn't satisfying on a deep level. I know I want to do something more fulfilling. I was taking Pilates and loved it and the equipment and decided to pursue the certification.

Why did you choose to open a studio in Venice? Venice embraces a unique and wide demographic of age groups and income levels, all of whom can benefit from classical Pilates. The strength of the Pilates method is that it is exercise for everyone, as powerful for those who can't do higher impact activities. I opened Turning Point as a way to introduce the classical Pilates method to the neighborhood...

BlogTown - The Classical Studio In Venice

I just took my first Pilates class ever. And I loved it. It always seemed like a lot of rigamarole for a lady who prefers to do my exercising outside, preferably free and alone on the beach so I can think, with no one yelling at me what to do, in my own world. Classes, equipment, a bunch of other sweaty people ... none of that is really my style. Then one day Robin Solo, owner of Turning Point Pilates in Venice, reached out to me and invited me to come and try a class. I'll pretty much always try something, so I went. And I can still feel it - in a good way...
