Meet our guest, Amber Susa Jewett. After an early career as a child actor, Amber learned to use movement to relieve stress and manage challenging situations. Amber used her love of fitness to open a successful fitness studio. Due to “divine timing” and physical hardship, Amber began to practice meditation. It motivated her to share the power of mind over matter. Amber now operates a new studio: Allomi - “Sanctuary for Holistic Health and Healing.”
Today, we are talking to my one of my life long besties! She is an incredible woman with a powerful breakdown to breakthrough story. We never become immune to the breakdown – breakthrough cycle because that is how we grow. That is how we expand and see the truth about ourselves – which is that we are more powerful, courageous, creative, and capable then we realize.
You’re standing on the sun-drenched, sea-breezy corner of Catalina and Avenue I in Riviera Village, and you see yourself reflected in the glass door of Allomi. As you open the door and step inside the light-filled main room, you know you’ve entered a very different kind of fitness studio.Bringing together movement, meditation and mindfulness, Allomi is a workout on every level.
Founder and owner Amber Susa Jewett started a unique holistic health sanctuary when she opened Allomi in Redondo Beach in January. With this studio, located in Riviera Village, Jewett was determined to “integrate movement, meditation and mindfulness.”
Jewett says “Holistic health is an ancient approach to life that considers the whole person and emphasizes the connection of body, mind, and spirit. Our schedule includes yoga, meditation, cardio dance, rebounding, and fitness classes. We also offer nutritional counseling, life coaching, holistic health and creative living workshops, massage therapy, physical therapy, acupuncture and Reiki.”
Aqua cycling, yes, spinning underwater, virtual reality fitness, and pounding the floor with drumsticks are just a few of the ways South Bay fitness studios are innovating to offer fun ways of reaching your fitness goals. With parents’ busy schedules and the physical demands of caring for little ones, there’s an especially pressing need to find efficient workouts as well as mentally stimulating ones that will help keep you coming back for more. Whether you are a new mom looking for ways to recover from childbirth or a parent of school age kids and want family yoga time, the studios below have something to offer.
Today we’d like to introduce you to Amber Susa Jewett.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Amber. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
Allomi is a manifestation of my desire to live a fully expressed life and share what I have learned. I have come to understand that I must nurture my mental, emotional, spiritual and physical life to achieve complete health and live my best life. On my spiritual journey I have come to accept, appreciate and embrace all-of-me. It is my intention to create a space that supports each individual to live their best life through movement, meditation, creative living and community.
