People don't often associate technology with meditation, but Hoame -- Toronto's largest meditation studio -- is aiming to change that, by balancing modern wellness with age-old techniques, to offer the city's inhabitants a break from the noise.
Trend Hunter sat down with Hoame's founders, Carolyn Plater and Stephanie Kersta, to learn more about what the studio had planned for Trend Hunter's Future Festival in Toronto, where Hoame is hosting an immersive Trend Safari, as well as an installation at the event's Future Party.
Infrared technology, color therapy saunas, starry sky simulations, salt caves, and musical integration are just some of the experiences guests can expect from a visit to Hoame. While modern and experimental, each class is expertly crafted with the same core values in mind -- deep relaxation and proactive wellbeing. Hoame's classes were designed to benefit seasoned gurus and beginners alike, offering a safe space where guests can freely immerse themselves in unique meditative experiences.
