373. Former Fashion Editor Suze Yalof Schwartz Gives Meditation a MAKEOVER

Aug 9, 2021 | Interviews, Podcast

Suze Yalof Schwartz is the creator of Unplug Meditation, an in-person studio (as well as an app) that has Los Angeles going nuts. Her career has been amazing. From working in the fashion industry with Anna Wintour, being a makeover specialist on The Oprah Show, and a fashion correspondent on Good Morning America, she eventually hit a point of burnout.

It was then that she was introduced to meditation and it was a game changer. When she moved to LA she expected meditation to be so common that you could just drop into a studio off the street – but she couldn’t find anything. So she built it instead. 

We talk about her former career, running a physical meditation center during a pandemic, the process of creating an app, and more.
