Are you overwhelmed? Do you live your life in a frenzy? Unplug Meditation founder Suze Yalof Schwartz says it’s time to live your life in the present, and you can learn to do it in a fun class or from an easy App. Here’s how.
“Meditation may cause increased happiness, focus, memory, compassion and productivity… it may also cause decreased stress, anxiety, optimism and inner peace.” That’s the ‘warning’ on the homepage of Unplug meditation, the first ‘meditation only’ studio in the country.
Unplug is the brainchild of formerly stressed out fashion stylist and on air talent, Suze Yalof Schwartz, 52, and also the mom of three high energy sons.
Today two studios, Unplug in Santa Monica and in West Hollywood are packed with classes from 9:30 in the morning until 9 pm at night and have names like, ‘Aromatherapy Meditation,’ Awakening Positivity,’ ‘Mind-Body Communication,’ ‘Saturday Night Sound bath and Self Reflection Meditation.’ For those who want to get the Unplug benefits of meditation but live outside of LA, there is the Unplug: Guided Meditation App, which you can download and use for $7.99 a month or $59.99 a year.
Yalof Schwartz insists that just 10 minutes of meditation a day which you can do while commuting on a train or a bus trip to work is enough to change your day and even your life.
“Meditation works for everyone. I’ve never met anyone who tried it and it didn’t work for,” Yalof Schwartz tells HollywoodLife in an EXCLUSIVE interview. “People become less angry, stressed and anxious. If meditation was a pill, everyone would be addicted.” Having discovered meditation herself, later in life, Suze now insists that “stress is optional.”
