San Diego Neighborhood Guide: Bankers Hill

Bankers Hill This Month:

New Moon Manifesting Circle, Sojourn Healing Collective, March 15

Energy Balancing 101, Thread & Seed, March 22

Sojourn Healing Collective

Hardcore yogis say your studio shouldn’t matter, but it doesn’t hurt that Sojourn is plenty pretty, from the exposed brick wall and lush plants in the yoga room to a bright boutique selling essential oils, palo santo sticks, and tarot cards. They also run guided meditations and workshops on chakra balancing. sojournsandiego

 

Extraordinary Desserts

Karen Krasne’s sweets emporium has been a staple of the neighborhood since 1989. This fall she’ll move the operation to The Louie condominium building on Fourth Avenue. Hers will be a LEED space with indoor-outdoor seating and a more modern vibe that’s in line with her Little Italy location.extraordinary_desserts
