FAQs

 

+ Where should I park and enter the building?

Unplug Meditation in LA is located on the north side of Wilshire Blvd. We proudly offer our guests parking spaces directly behind the meditation studio (it is $3 with validation) in addition to the metered on-street parking on Wilshire and South Carmelina. Adjacent Centinela has free two hour parking.

(tip: check the signs for street cleaning days and parking bans.) You may enter the studio through the lobby via Wilshire Blvd or the rear parking lot.

+ What classes are good for beginners?

All of the classes are designed for new students, but can also work for the pro. The classes meet you wherever you are.

+ What if I can't sit still?

That's okay. We won't hit you with a stick (like they would at a zen monastery). Here, we just ask you to move mindfully to reposition.

+ What if I can't stop thinking?

Thinking is natural in meditation. In fact, the practice is noticing what you're thinking, being aware of what you're thinking, and then redirecting your focus to a single focal point that your teacher will guide you to. Think of it like bicep curls but for your brain. The more you do this the more you will actually strengthen and grow your brain.

+ Can I bring my kids to class?

Yes but only if they are 16 and older. If they are 12+ they must be accompanied by a parent and have no issues with sitting still or uncontrollable giggling. They will not be permited into our breathwork classes. Anyone under the age of 12 can take our wonderful Unplug Kids Program, so please check our schedule! The Dalai Lama once said,

If every 8 year old in the world is taught meditation, we will eliminate violence from the world within one generation.

Unplug kids is a meditation program that is developmentally appropriate for your little ones.
