We have no specific dress code, however we suggest wearing something you feel comfortable to sit in whether jeans or workout clothes.

Suits or skirts are also welcome although we don’t recommend the mini-skirt, for obvious reasons..
Unwind is here to make meditation accessible to everyone. With that in mind, we have chairs, cushions (zafus and zabutons), and seiza benches (for the least amount of stress on knee and hip joints), for you to choose from. If you are concerned about being comfortable during the session, please call us at 713-446-1371 to discuss further options.
