Why should I meditate?

We all experience daily pressure to succeed and are self-critical when we don’t. We rush around in the daily grind of life and then fall into bed exhausted, just waiting for weekends. This day-to-day overwhelm is why millions are flocking to mindfulness. This powerful practice offers you the ability to pay attention and become present to get the most out of your life. Mindfulness teaches you how to more calmly respond to situations, recognize unhealthy habits, become more tolerant, less judgmental, and kinder to yourself & others.

The best way to understand & develop mindfulness is through meditation. This universal practice has nothing to do with organized religion or dogma of any kind. Meditation is effortless concentration. It can lessen anxiety & stress, improve your health, and give you more restful sleep.

Why meditate at ZenCat Lounge?

When you practice meditation at ZenCat, you receive one-on-one guidance from experienced meditators who can help you choose a guided meditation from our curated selection, provide feedback & support, and act as a mentor on your meditation journey. You’ll have a personalized experience that is tailored to your needs and skill level. You’ll also have access to the Muse headband, a neurofeedback device used by health professionals and universities around the world, to have a deeper and more rewarding meditation.

By meditating at a studio, you also have the opportunity to be part of a community of people like you who are incorporating mindfulness & meditation into their daily lives. You can share your successes and setbacks, support each other, and even make new friends. Think of a meditation studio as a gym for your mind. When you join a gym, you’re making a commitment to yourself to improve your health and your life. Attending a meditation studio is the same, without the sweat. Plus we offer something no other gym or studio does: the chance to do good & warm your heart by spending time with rescue cats. When you’re feeling like skipping your meditation time today, imagining their adorable faces can be just the motivation you need!
