'The Local Skill' is not just a fitness group, it's an artistic fitness collective.

The wellness events are put together by Shay Kostabi and take place in Los Angeles. For a typical event, people are invited to "come dressed in your best, colorful fashion-forward fitness gear" on a tour of multiple stops that relate to fitness, food and creativity. A typical series of events might begin with a Flight class (a hybrid of yoga and dance cardio), followed by an Acro yoga perfromance and end at a gallery party filled with treats and refreshments.

One of the next events from The Local Skill is a free-to-join 5k street art run that will be a treat for the body and the eyes.
