The Meditation Lab was founded in 2016 by longtime yoga teacher and mother of six, Jennifer Monness. As a parent to middle school, high school, and college-age children, she was all too familiar with the overwhelming pressure students feel to achieve in their lives. A certified yoga and meditation instructor, Jen has first-hand experience with the powerful impact yoga and mindfulness can have on building inner resilience to navigate physical, mental, and emotional stress.
"A consistent meditation practice can play a key role in the overall mental health and well-being of teenagers. By increasing their capacity to learn effectively and assisting in their ability to manage challenging emotions, meditation helps students navigate their academic demands and personal challenges with a greater overall sense of ease."
