From increased energy and productivity levels to clarity of mind, meditation, just like a tropical getaway, is almost always a good idea. The only difference being is that said tropical getaway isn’t always possible during your lunch break. Meditation, however, is always there for you even when you don’t have the motivation to do it yourself. From Sydney to the Big Apple, there’s been a rising trend for meditation studios, in addition to yoga studios, offering guided meditation practices amidst our hectic schedules and lives.
Since being mindful is in, we’ve selected a few studios in Australia for you to try out and get your bliss on. Whether you’re a total newbie or an advanced practioner, these studios have got you covered.
