Sometimes we need to take the time to step back and breathe. Sarah and Lisa and the boss babes behind Modern + Mindful and they are here to bring just that!

What do you make / sell? Tell us about yo’ self.
We wanted to create a space for people to enjoy a moment or two for themselves on a daily basis. We understand what it’s like trying to sit still for a few minutes, and just how difficult it can be. This is why our classes are a quick 30 minutes- long enough to feel the many scientifically proven benefits of meditation, and short enough to fit into your day.
How long have you had your business?
January 2017
How did you get started?
Bringing a brand new experience to Calgary,  as sister-in- laws (Lisa Webb and Sarah Webb) we want you to feel the benefits of hitting the pause button. We have come together to open Calgary’s very first modern meditation studio, Modern + Mindful.
Both busy, working moms with five kids between us, we’ve experienced the benefits of meditation first hand. We found our way to meditations through different routes, as told further on, but are unanimous in the passion they have for sharing it.
Who or what inspires your work?
I am very inspired by the simple effect that meditation can have on each persons life, and the trickle down effect that meditation can have within a family or a community. I love knowing that we have created a space for people to find calm and relaxation.
What do you dream for your business in the future?
We would like to expand to several locations in Calgary to make mediation even more accessiable to all calgarians, and expand our offering for children and teens.
What’s your favourite social media platform and why?
We love Instagram! It has been our tool to recruit many of our instructors, and we have found a lot of our guests are discovering us on Instagram. We love being able to visually display the best parts of our business
How do you pick yourself up when things go wrong?
Meditation helps refocus the brain on a new direction! Physical activity is very important too- a great boxing class at Rumble always helps. Plus reminding myself that “what is the worst that can happen if I try something new”.
What’s one thing no one knows about you? Give us an interesting fact!
I can say the alphabet backwards, and I once hitchhiked across Ireland in my crazy youth.
If you could have any super power what would it be?
The ability to remember everything I’ve ever read- – photographic memory!
