Makeover guru makes over meditation in new L.A. studio
Los Angeles, CA (April 8, 2014) — A peaceful haven is emerging in a surprising location. As drivers whiz past concrete buildings on Wilshire Boulevard in West L.A., they speed by an oasis of calm they’d be delighted to discover. Hidden next to a courtyard, with a bamboo garden and 15-foot water fountain, is the perfect place to take a grown-up time-out.
Starting April 15, 2014, unplug meditation will provide a serene studio where you can take a break from traffic, devices, kids and bosses, morning, noon and night.
Suze Yalof Schwartz, whom the New York Times called “the fairy godmother” of makeovers, is now making over meditation. The busy mom and fashion editor was looking for a place to meditate but couldn’t find anything that fit her fast-paced life and high-end taste. She tried all the venues at which you could possibly meditate in Los Angeles, but instead of tuning into her breath, she cast her editor’s eye on all the things she could make better, from the spaces to the classes to the instructors. Yalof Schwartz wanted to merge soul with science, and balance the best of both.
So she took over a dark, grey, head-hunting office and transformed it into a contemporary, clean, light studio for meditation. And she set classes for 30- and 45-minute intervals, so busy people could drop in, tune out the world and tune into themselves.
“Can you meditate at home?” Yalof Schwartz asks. “Absolutely. Do I wish could? I could, but I don’t. I’m much better when I’m guided. And frankly, it’s a lot easier.”
Yalof Schwartz wants to disprove the most common meditation myth: I can’t meditate because I think too much. The truth is everyone thinks too much and everyone can meditate. It’s all about learning how to deal with those thoughts and move back to your focus point. “I’ve yet to meet anyone who has been able to stop thinking,” she says.
unplug medition is a space for people who want to try out meditation and learn that they actually can do it. But it is also a great space for experienced meditators to get away from the world and be guided by exceptional teachers who understand real people.
“Meditation has a host of scientifically proven benefits, yet so few people know how to do it,” Yalof Schwartz says. “I want to show everyone just how easy it is to learn, and how great it is for your mind, body and soul.”
Opening April 15th, unplug meditation, 12401 Wilshire Boulevard, Studio 101, will offer daily classes at all hours, including lunchtime “quickies.” Clients can drop in and pay $20 per-class, purchase packages of 10 or 20 classes, or buy unlimited monthly memberships.
