It turns out that the newest studio trend doesn’t involve much movement, but it’s still a great workout – for your mind, that is. Meditation studios like Unplug Meditation in L.A. and MNDFL in New York are becoming increasingly popular, thanks to benefits like reduced stress, improved focus and a boost in creativity. Whether you’ve tried meditating or not, a meditation class is a great thing to add to your routine.
It Helps You Commit
While meditation might be something you want to accomplish in your day, this doesn’t mean that you’ll always fit it in! By signing up for a class and adding it to your calendar, you’re committing to that session, which means that you are that much more likely to show up. Attending a regular class is also a great way to get into a routine with meditation, making you more likely to practice mindfulness skills more frequently. You can even agree to attend a class with a friend, making you accountable to each other.
