Suze Yalof Schwartz is the CEO and Founder of Unplug Meditation, the author of Unplug: A Simple Guide To Meditation for Busy Skeptics and Modern Soul Seekers, and the creator of the Unplug Meditation App.
In 2012 Suze learned a three minute meditation that turned her world upside-down and changed her life forever. Prior to this she was a fashion editor and "makeover guru" working at Vogue, Elle, Marie Claire and Glamour Magazine with regular appearances on GMA, The Today Show, CBS Early Show and more. Once she got the meditation bug she was on a mission to keep doing it but found that it was not easy to find a place to learn and pop in and out and practice. Think "Dry Bar" for meditation, walk in icky walk out great in under 30 minutes. After taking hundreds of hours of classes and courses,reading every book possible, and listening to podcasts, lectures, and more from the world’s most famous meditation teachers, Suze realized that meditation needed a makeover and she was the one to do it. Hello Unplug! Suze's mission is to make meditation simple, powerful and interesting enough so that everyone will want to practice it and experience the benefits for themselves.

Why I practice meditation:
When I meditate I feel present, happier, more focused and can literally see my own emotions and press my inner pause button so that I can respond instead of react. Because of meditation I don't get caught up in stress or pettiness.
Why I teach meditation:
When I discovered meditation I was so blown away by how quickly and easily I could move from stress to calm. I am on a mission to share this with everyone who wants to learn. Meditation is the greatest thing you can do for your brain honestly believe that the world will be a better place when everyone meditates.
