HOW IT WORKS

30 to 45 Minute Classes. Just Bring Yourself.

 

Our classes are designed for results so that you can access calm, present moment awareness and increase focus, productivity, creativity, memory and sense of purpose and feeling of happiness. All classes are led by highly trained and passionate teachers whose voices make you relax and whose personalities make you want to hang out with them. It’s that easy. Our mission is to keep it simple and interesting enough that you will want to do it all the time. The more you practice the bigger the effects. It works for everyone from the skeptic to the soul seeker!

  6. Leave at your leisure.

principles of meditation

 
  1. Breath. Get grounded and experience your breath
  2. Focus on something (a mantra, a word, your breath, a body part, or a grape)
  3. Let go of the focus and experience the gap of pure awareness of the present moment.
  4. Think. When a thought pops into your head, acknowledge it and let it go.  
  5. Repeat from step 2

studio etiquette

 

OUR RULES ARE FOR YOUR BENEFIT

Unplug.

No cell phones or PDA’s inside the studio. There are no exceptions (we tried). Please turn off your ring/alert /vibration mode and leave it outside of the room. The front desk will hold if you are expecting an emergency or if you would like us to. One little beep can ruin a meditation.

Quiet Please.

Please refrain from speaking inside the room before or after the class. Our meditators like to quietly go in and out of meditation at their own pace.

Shoes.

Please check your shoes in the bench before entering.

Mindful Moving.

We want you to be comfortable so please move quietly when shifting positions and do not change chair positions mid class or rub jewelry or zippers on the ground.

Be Early.

Please arrive 10 minutes early for check in . We respect your time by starting on time. Late arrivals are disruptive and will no longer be admitted. Once the door is closed we will not reopen it. If the class is busy please only take one chair.

Wait To Enter.

Please wait until the doors are open before entering the room.

 

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.

+ Why should I meditate?

If you want to be able to focus on demand, access calm, and control your Google brain, you're going to want to meditate. The benefits of meditation are vast and scientifically proven. Click here to find out more about the benefits.

+ 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.
