Yinshi Pods seek partner to trial new meditation pod

Providing meditation classes – which many companies now do – is fantastic, but the lack of apt space to meditate daily, at times when we need it, is still a big issue for many people. In practice it’s the biggest obstacle for people sticking with a regular meditation habit or getting the sleep they need to combat stress and anxiety.
