The Meditation Lab was founded in 2016 by longtime yoga and meditation teacher Jennifer Monness. Inspired by the impact practicing meditation had on her own ability to navigate the stress of working and raising a family, Jennifer began leading corporate workshops, sharing the benefits of a regular meditation practice along with simple ways to integrate the practice into one’s life.
Throughout her 25 years of teaching, Jennifer gained first-hand experience of the powerful impact the mindfulness practice can have on building inner resilience to navigate physical, mental, and emotional stress.
As a parent to middle school, high school, and college-age children, Jennifer was all too familiar with the overwhelming pressure students feel to achieve in their lives. Seeing a need for a program that would teach children simple practical tools and techniques to help relax the body and settle the mind, she was inspired to expand her work into the field of education Whether she’s working with students, faculty and administrators or in a corporate setting office with business executives and support staff, Jennifer simply loves teaching people how to meditate and sharing how the practice can help one deal with life’s stresses and pressures.
"A consistent meditation practice can play a key role in overall mental health and well-being. By increasing one’s capacity to focus attention and manage challenging emotions, meditation helps the practitioner navigate work demands and personal challenges with a greater overall sense of ease.”
