BETHESDA: Meditation and Wellness "Just Meditate" Opening in Woodmont Triangle - November 21

Just Meditate is opening its first studio on Monday November 21, 2016. The studio is based at 4928 St. Elmo Avenue, centrally located near the Bethesda Metro Station and Bethesda Row, in the Woodmont Triangle area of Bethesda, Maryland.

With the rise of meditation’s popularity and proven benefits, it may come as a surprise to many that Bethesda does not have a dedicated meditation studio. 

“But not to me,”,” said founder Amy Thaler. "As a native Washingtonian I’ve seen first-hand how much stress and worry plague everyone – from parents, to lawyers, to government workers. There should be meditation studios on every corner!”
That’s precisely why Thaler founded Just Meditate. She wanted a way for people to check “life” at the door and bring more mindfulness into their daily lives. “After this election cycle, Just Meditate is needed now more than ever,” said Thaler. Just Meditate offers customized meditation classes as well as private sessions, all taught by meditation experts and innovators. Classes incorporate ancient meditation practices but are delivered in with secular tone, and are guided so students new and experienced can ease into their practice.
“It isn't surprising that DC is one of the fittest cities in the nation,” said Patricia Ullman, Just Meditate’s Senior Instructor. “Our goal is to shift the area's focus from fitness to overall wellness, which includes meditation. Meditation has been proven to improve happiness, communication, focus, productivity, creativity, and memory; reduce high blood pressure, pain, stress, and anxiety. Our aim is to help bring the benefit of meditation mainstream and make our community healthier."
There are eight different types of classes such as “Just Meditate” (the 45 minute signature class), “Just Breathe” (focused on deep breathing), “Just Love” (focused on loving kindness, compassion, and acceptance), “Just Recovery” (for those battling or recovering from an addiction) and “Just Enough,” an abbreviated signature class only 30 minutes long making it easier for the average Washington Work-A-Holic to squeeze in some time for their well-being. All classes are uniquely customized for each theme, are absent of music or other distractions, and are led by instructors with vast experience.

Just Meditate will kick off its opening with two free classes this Friday and two free classes this Saturday.
