For a wellness-focused holiday party, the meditation space Mindset Brain Gym opened in Yorkville in July. With 5,300 square feet of space, the gym is divided into three spaces: the Gallery, Meditation Room, and Lounges, with design from interior design firm Ariel Muller Designs. The Meditation Room is a multi-sensory experience with a captivating LED light wall capable of programmable colors and patterns, a surround-sound system, and ergonomic meditation chairs, with seating for 25. The second-floor basement Gallery is a raw open space with walls displaying artwork by Peter Tunney; it holds 150 people for receptions. The two lounges feature natural elements including a giant 14-foot preserved moss wall, birch trees, and real wood coffee and end tables, as well as comfortable couches and lounge seating to facilitate group discussions, with seating for 10 or standing room for 15. Buyouts are available and can include all meditation services.
