  • February is Meditation Month! Paid Member

    This year, a few of us in the Tricycle office promised ourselves to spend a little less time stalking getting to know others online and a little more time getting to know ourselves on the mat. Well, a month has passed and we need some help committing. Lucky for us, it’s Meditation Month! What is Meditation Month, you ask? We’re committing to sit every day in February, rain or shine, good days and bad, through headache, hunger, and polar vortexes. No excuses.
