OUR TEAM

Jonathan Marcoschamer – Founder & CEO.

After learning the ancient meditation practice of Vipassana through a 10-day silent meditation course, Jonathan became aware of the power of meditation and understood that it is a skill that everyone should learn and practice. He noticed his heightened ability to focus, gain clarity, and cultivate equanimity, but most importantly, he noticed that people liked him more when he was heavily meditated. The idea for the pod came while sitting in an open-floor office space with nowhere to do his breathing exercises, so he envisioned a pod that allows for privacy and the integration of other therapeutic modalities that can help people chill out quickly and effectively.
