Where to Find Balance in New York

We all could benefit from bringing more balance into our lives. Our busy work and social calendars can burn us out and tire us out easily. That’s why we’re bringing you a series of recommendations for the best places to find disconnection and balance. We still believe leaving the city is the best way to recharge, but that’s not always possible, so it’s important to find sanctuaries even in the middle of our cities.

Here are some of our recommendations for our favorite places to rejuvenate in New York.

For Meditation


With a mission of making humans feel good, MNDFL is the perfect space for someone looking to integrate meditation into their routine. In addition to a variety of classes, the space also offers space for self-guided practice when there are no sessions.

For Yoga


New York has an endless supply of wonderful yoga studios, but a great one to try is Yoga Vida. With a wide variety of classes and a mission to make yoga accessible and inclusive, it’s the perfect place to find your new yoga community.

For an Immersive Wellness Experience

If you’re looking for a new and different way to relax, consider Modrn Sanctuary. The wellness center aims to be “a haven for those looking to calm their senses and relax.” With everything from personal meditation domes to Himalayan salt baths, it’s the ideal place for anyone looking to explore the newest trends surrounding a balanced lifestyle.

For Greenery


For those looking to head, the best place to disconnect in the middle of the city is Central Park. While some parts may be filled with tourists during the warmer months, there’s still plenty of space for you to take a break from the hustle and bustle and go for a stroll.

City Escape

These are all great practices to build balance back into your routine. Sometimes nothing beats a quick and simple escape from the city.
