Did you know Chakra 5 also works with college students and staff? The Fashion Institite of Design & Merchandising, or FIDM, is a private college for students in the Fashion Design that was founded in 1969. Their flagship school is located right here in downtown Los Angeles. Chakra 5 has been working with them since 2009, partnering with Student Activities to offer everything from yoga and pilates classes to stress management workshops during final exams.
We recently interviewed Molly Hedges, Director of Student Activities, about her thoughts on working with Chakra 5:
Why did you decide to offer wellness classes at FIDM?
We have Health and Wellness Fairs and throughout the year try to stress the importance of staying healthy.
Why did you decide to partner with Chakra 5?
We love to support local businesses!
Tell us how the classes have been going and the benefits the students have enjoyed as a result?
Our students really appreciate the student discount and supporting Downtown!
