On a busy Saturday afternoon in New York, I decided to steal away for some quiet and calm at MNDFL, having heard about it on MindBodyGreen. The uber chic center for mindfulness offers drop in meditation classes on the hour and it seemed like the perfect opportunity to give my overloaded mind some tender loving care.
MNDFL offers an excellent online booking service where you literally book your cushion for each scheduled class. The cool interior complete with bolster pillow and matching grey mat is set against white bare walls and light wooden floors. Our meditation teacher Marisa calmly opened the class equating the breath as your own personal best friend. She encouraged the class to use the breath as a constant guide no matter what was going on in our lives.
