Frequently Asked Questions

Where should I start?

If you are new to meditation, we recommend starting with 10 minute videos. Two popular themes for beginners are Breath or Heart, but really any theme will do! Try to stick with the 10 minute videos for at least 5 days in a row and build up from there. Our teachers come from many different meditation traditions, so try out a few styles and teachers until you find what works best for you!

Where and how should I sit?

On a MNDFL meditation cushion of course! Just kidding! Set up a little spot in your home that is a designated meditation area: this could be your couch, a favorite chair or even a corner with a meditation cushion. Pick a time of day that you feel you are most likely to have the space and time to consistently show up. Pro tip: Our favorite time is first thing in the morning after we get out of bed before we look at our phones.


When we sit in a upright meditation posture, we stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system (the opposite of the “fightflight” response) because the body understands that it is in a safe place and the mind can begin to relax. You can sit on a cushion with your legs loosely crossed or in a chair (preferably one without wheels so you feel grounded) and start by placing your feet firmly on the ground. Sometimes people wonder if they can lay down – sure! If you have trouble physically, or find that sitting continues to be uncomfortable, choose a posture that brings about dignity and relaxation.To get some cues on posture / how to sit watch this video.

I’ve tried to meditate and it doesn’t work. What should I do?

You are not alone. This is probably the single biggest comment we see from community members in the studio and online. Just the act of taking the time to meditate is practice in and of itself. So be easy on yourself. Some days it will be easy and some days (even for the most experienced meditators) just 10 minutes will feel excruciating.


If you feel like you “can’t turn your brain off” and it’s hard to be alone with your thoughts – we get it. We still feel that too! Try starting with some practices that are a bit more guided, like Heart or Intentions. See if you can find a practice that you can do for 10 minutes and just start there. Keep coming back. It gets easier, we promise!

What if I fall asleep?

Well, you probably need more sleep…but let’s be honest, you knew that already! A few tips if you are really struggling with sleepiness on the cushion:


  1. Try a little light movement or stretching before you sit
  2. Drink some water or tea
  3. Practice with your eyes open (yes this is a thing!). Gaze about 3 feet in front of you in a loose, unfocused manner.
