Being MNDFL in New York City

Being MNDFL in New York City

January 03, 2017

In New York City, one of the most stressed out cities in America, MNDFL serves as the premier meditation studio for hundreds of new and experienced meditators every week. At the beginning of 2016, MNDFL opened the doors to their first studio in Greenwich Village, and has since rapidly expanded with two more studios on the Upper East Side and Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Co-founders Ellie Burrows and Lodro Rinzler created a “modern, non-religious, drop-in studio where [you] could explore traditional meditation techniques in a contemporary context.” Along with their excellent in-house teaching staff which includes Lodro who is a teacher of the Shambhala Buddhist lineage, Megan Mook, Ralph De La Rosa, and Thupten Phuntsok, MNDFL's peaceful, modern spaces have been host to special events for everyone from Sharon SalzbergAtonal Meditation, Sara Auster, LGBT communities, mothers, and socially conscious corporate companies.

We were so happy to have the opportunity to outfit their three studios with our Stone cushions customized with embroidery and coordinated with their beautiful interiors designed by Home Polish. Meditators have a choice of either round cushion or gomden on top of a flat cushion Cushions are also available for purchase in their boutique.
