Inscape, Fitness for Beauty from the Inside

Recently, many in New York’s Flatiron district have chosen to focus more on their health. They’ve developed a sense of personal design, and boutique gyms line the streets. Clad in rakish outfits gym members come and go, but what’s attracting local attention now is the meditation studio, Inscape. Inscape provides a place to exercise the mind, deepen relaxation, and heighten concentration through mental exercises. Inscape also offers an app that makes it possible to reap the benefits of meditation whenever and wherever you like, without attending a studio session. The meditation exercises, which have been handed down through history, take on a 21st-century flair adopted to match our modern lifestyles, using unique breathing techniques, movements, and sounds.
