Inhere Unveils Innovative Meditation Pod in London Workspace

In an effort to help stressed out Londoners address their work-life balance, drop-in meditation studio Inhere has debuted its innovative meditation pods in a London workspace

Work-related stress has climbed to its highest rate in 16 years, with a 7% rise in stress related reports in the last year alone. For this reason, Inhere has partnered with luxury co-working space, Uncommon, to unveil its first workspace meditation pod at Uncommon Borough on 16 October.

The pod will offer a quiet place to step out of the daily grind and into a calming space to unwind, relax and reflect. With a selection of 10, 15, 20 and 30-minute guided meditations, you can choose from over 20 original tracks, ranging from mindfulness-based meditations to a variety of calming sounds like ocean waves and forest rain.

Created from natural materials, in collaboration with Design and That³, the pod allows natural light to flood in to create a bright and airy space while affording you the privacy to relax. You can sit, lounge or lay fully horizontal, place the headset on and, with the easy-to-follow guidance, ease your mind from thoughts of stress or anxiety.

Inhere – meaning ‘to exist within’ – provides the space and tools for busy, anxious urbanites to incorporate highly-beneficial meditation practices into their daily lives in a convenient and practical way.

The benefits of meditation are well documented. Research shows that meditating, even just for a few minutes at a time, can help us manage stress, think more clearly, sleep deeper, work more effectively and live in a calmer, more considered way.

Similar to Inhere, these values also resonate throughout Uncommon’s workspaces, currently located in Borough, Fulham, Highbury & Islington and soon to open in Liverpool Street. Health and wellbeing, design and technology are at the heart of the workspaces to create an environment for productive working and strike a healthy work-life balance. And now, at the Borough venue, you can use the pods as a meditation tool, or simply somewhere to escape to and reset the mind.

Inhere, which launched in May 2017 as London’s first drop-in meditation studio, will also opening the capital’s most advanced drop-in meditation studio in Fitzrovia in December. Founders and meditation experts, Adiba Osmani and Ghazal Abrishamchi, will offer a range of specialist group and individual classes and workshops for novices and experts alike.
