MNDFL in the City
I want to introduce you to a beautiful new space where you can literally find the calm in the midst of the chaos. MNDFL is opening their door to New Yorkers and inviting them into the heart of a meditation practice. The minute I stepped foot into their gorgeous, serene space, I knew I had discovered something special.
The concept is genius. I love that you can take a moment away from the hustle and bustle and drop in . . . to yourself. It feels so relevant to have a space in the middle of this crazy city where New Yorkers can come and sit and be quiet. Hey, if you can meditate here, you can meditate anywhere!
Ellie Burrows and Lodro Rinzler, the creators of MNDFL, are two of the nicest people you’ll meet. They really “get it” — New Yorkers want a meditation practice that feels real and accessible, and that meets them exactly where they are.
Their thoughtful approach to the practice is conveyed in the studio’s stunning design; every element of the decor is, well, mindful (pun intended). Honestly, they had me at the brass geometric lights and Aesop soap in the bathrooms (I mean, they get it).
Classes at MNDFL are drop-in and thematic; you can choose a thirty or forty minute sit focused on whatever you may need on any given day: intention, breath, mantra, sound, sleep, etc. Their teachers come from different backgrounds and offer accessible approaches to meditation. When classes are not in session, you can pay $5 (or, if you’re a member, it’s free) to use the space for self-guided meditation. How cool is that? I could sit there all day and drink
coffee tea and drool over their decor meditate.
MNDFL is a warm, authentic, and welcoming space that will help you discover, cultivate, and deepen your meditation practice. I’ll be leading a class at MNDFL this Sunday, March 13th at 11am designed to help you set an intention for your day/week/life. Come by! I would love to welcome you to this beautiful space.
