Inspired By A Cancer Survivor's Journey, Mobile Meditation Studio "Calm City" Opens in NYC
Long-time meditator and breast cancer survivor, Kristin Westbrook saw the need for a convenient, calm space to relax, so she opened "Calm City". Kristin was the Creative Director for DirecTv when she was first diagnosed with breast cancer. Her health issue caused additional stress and when she was unable to find a place to mediate in the crazy, chaotic NYC, she took it upon herself to create "Calm City."
Calm City is New York City's first mobile meditation studio that's relieving stress in the heart of the busy big apple. "It's a crazy, chaotic environment where you see a lot of stressed out time-starved folks that could really use meditation," says founder, Kristin Westbrook.
Calm City offers audio-guided meditation sessions every 15 minutes for up to 9 meditators at once. Westbrook renovated a 1976 GMC RV, so she brings the meditation to you offering a 10-minute class that can change your day in a snap, making Calm City as convenient as a food truck!
You can either book online or simply walk-in and take a class. Calm City is also available for exclusive bookings for hourly, half-day, or full-day events including: health fairs, fundraisers, team-building, company outings and pretty much any other special event you can think of.
"People know there are benefits to meditation: not only stress-relief, but better focus, creativity, and a better connection with themselves," says Kristin.
Thanks to Kristin and Calm City meditation teacher Marlie McGovern, 10 minutes is all you need to be happier, less stressed, and more relaxed!
