Most Common Questions

I’ve never meditated before- how do I start?

Simply book one of our classes (meditation 101 is ideal) and show up at our studio. We have several class styles to choose from, and all of our friendly teachers will make you feel comfortable beginning a meditation practice, or just trying it out to see what all the fuss is about. One time may make you feel more relaxed, but do note it’s when you commit to a regular meditation that your brain will start to physically change (for the better!)

Which style of meditation is best for me?

We recommend trying all of our classes, and seeing which one feels the best for you. It is quite likely that your favorite class will change on a regular basis depending upon what you feel like that day/week.

I have a difficult time sitting on the floor- can I still attend a class?

We have 5 chairs available for each class, for those who prefer to sit on a chair rather than a floor cushion. The chairs are along one side of the room, for ease of access.

I work out regularly and find it to be a very mindful experience. Would meditation still be of benefit to me?

Yes- it can help hone in your focus on a run, and help you mentally push through that last set at the gym. Plus meditation is a great daily practice you can incorporate into your life in your day to day clothes, as there is much less sweating!

Am I meditating properly?

Some classes will feel easy, others more difficult, but if you are taking the time to come to a class and breathe, you are doing it right! Some days you will crave the experience of meditating, other days it may be the last thing you feel like doing, but either way, there is always going to be benefits felt each time you meditate.

What should I wear?

Anything that you feel comfortable in. Or in the event that you wish to change out of your workwear into loungewear to meditate, we do have a change area in our locker room for your convenience.

Where do I park?

There is paid street parking along 11th avenue and also along 4th street SW during daytime and evening hours. Note the times for each zone as to when you pay, and that rush hour on weekdays is a no parking time.

There is an impark parking lot on 11th avenue across the street from the studio.

What if I am running late?

For the comfort and focus of other guests attending a class, we do require that class begins on time.  If you are running late, we welcome you to grab a kombucha and have a seat in our waiting lounge until the next class begins.

Can I bring my cell phone into class?

We have a strict no cell phone policy within the studio.
