Want to Start Meditating? Here Are Some Studios and Apps to Get You Started

Below, a few Manhattan studios that offer group meditation classes, and apps to help you get started on your own.
This NoMad meditation studio opened in 2016 and features two stunning meditation rooms and a schedule of classes of various lengths and themes throughout the day. The studio also carries a small shop of books, snacks and accessories. Not in New York? The subscription-based Inscape meditation app offers guided meditations.
Particularly beginner-friendly, MNDFL has two studios in Manhattan — in Greenwich Village and the Upper East Side — as well as one in Brooklyn. The studios feature serene white brick and living walls, and offers group classes in addition to drop-in hours.
