Shake off the Monday Blues at The Williamsburg Hotel’s MNDFL Meditation

The Williamsburg Hotel is not just for tourists and out-of-town guests — the plush boutique is expanding its public services, and this includes open meditation every other Monday.

Starting this month, the hotel at North 10th and Wythe opens its doors to launch a partnership with MDNFL, a meditation studio with outposts in Williamsburg and Manhattan. With classes in the hotel’s library bar, MNDFL will pop up every other Monday from 7–7:45 PM to help you relax and reflect. Classes cost $10 for hotel guests and $20 for visitors; cushions/mats are provided, but of course bring your own if that’s your jam. There’s no strict dress code — just come cozy.

A certified MNDFL instructor will guide guests through a step-by-step meditation practice, encouraging everyone to turn their attention inward to detox. These evening classes may improve sleep cycles, and more info about future sessions can be found here.

The Williamsburg Hotel has a host of other eventful offerings including jazz nights on Thursdays, Sync Yoga, and — of course — Harvey, the hotel’s on-campus bar and restaurant. If you want to grab a bite after your class — and maybe a drink as well — Harvey hosts Mindful Mondays where guests who turn in their phone get a free cocktail. It’s like a sunnier episode of Black Mirror; you’re rewarded for surrendering technology. It’s the perfect way to cap off a meditation session — that is, if you don’t mind a little extra buzz.
