In a bustling city, meditation rooms can provide an escape. (Saint Marks Place via Grain London) In a bustling city, meditation rooms can provide an escape. (Saint Marks Place via Grain London)
Like yoga before it, meditation has recently gone from a niche activity to a mainstream practice. That was especially the case during the coronavirus pandemic - meditation app Headspace reports that its downloads have doubled since March 2020, and its competitor Calm recently surpassed 80 million downloads. As studies have shown that meditation can reduce negative emotions, increase patience and creativity, and lead to better stress management, it’s not surprising that many would wish for these during a stressful time.

However, the benefits of meditation are not always easy to achieve in an apartment - the sound of a partner’s Zoom call or TV show bursts through thin walls, pets whine or scratch at a closed door, and shutting oneself in the bathroom for a session lasting at least 10 minutes isn’t an ideal solution. For some lucky New Yorkers, this is where in-building meditation rooms come in. Gramercy Square led the charge with a studio co-designed by MNDFL, and a crop of new developments has added meditation rooms to their health and wellness amenity packages. These are not white boxes, but space intentionally designed with a tranquil atmosphere to help residents in their practice. We take a look at new developments with meditation rooms among the amenities package.
