Founded by Suze Yalof Schwartz, a former editor at Vogue and Glamour, Unplug is a mediation studio that's designed to do away with all of the new age nonsense and holier-than-thou attitudes that surround the practice of mediation.

Unplug studio is described as an environment that's clean, modern, secular and easy to attend—as Schwartz describes it, Unplug is like "A SoulCycle for meditation." Set up like a modern yoga or Pilates studio, Unplug has spaces for shoes and mobile devices to be stored during practice. Hoping to appeal to people who are overly stressed with work or their personal lives, the studio provides about 30 classes weekly, ranging from 30 to 45 minute sessions, including spots to squeeze in during your lunch break, guided classes and even lessons for kids.
