Announcing Saturday Sept. 21 - Grand Opening of Chicago's Newest Yoga and Meditation Center

Sep 9, 2013

CHICAGO, Illinois (September 9, 2013) — Meditate, a new yoga and meditation space at 4237 N. Lincoln Ave on Chicago’s north side announced its Grand Opening will be Sat. Sept. 21 to coincide with the arrival of the fall equinox. Guests who stop by for the opening can take any of six yoga classes or four meditation classes, all at no charge.


The center, which opened quietly in early July of this year, has been warming up the Northcenter neighborhood with its integrative approach to meditation and yoga with open meditation classes, guided twelve week mediation courses and a variety of yoga styles including Yoga for Runners, Restorative Yoga, as well as several levels of Vinyasa and Hatha. On Sat. Sept 21, beginning at 9 a.m. and going until 5 p.m., a full schedule of classes will be offered for no charge for those stopping by.


“We conceived of Meditate to create a convenient, clean space to practice both yoga and meditation and help people to reach a more peaceful inner state,” said owner and meditation instructor Andrew Shykofsky. “I think one of the reasons we are drawing people in is that our meditation classes take people beyond the normal accepted teaching that often leads to frustration and giving up,” Shykofsky said. “It is absolutely untrue that people need to sit cross legged in Lotus position and strive for a state of no thoughts for 20 minutes in order to have a meaningful practice.”


Meditate yoga teachers are selected based on an attitude of wanting to serve the students sincerely, as well as their years of yoga experience. “Everything about this place is focused on giving our all to those who come to practice. We chose teachers who understood how to really care for the clients. The less ego in here, the better!”


To view the Grand Opening class offerings and new fall schedule, Grand opening attendees will also get access to lower monthly rate pricing of only $75 month for unlimited yoga and mediation classes. Those interested in attending the guided meditation courses are encouraged to sign-up early to guarantee a place in the class.
