Arden learned to meditate while working as an elementary school teacher in Harlem. Her days were long, demanding, and turbulent, and the practice allowed her to stay calm in the chaos. Since learning to meditate, Arden has experienced more self-love, confidence, and happiness than she ever thought possible. After decades of sinus issues, hormonal imbalances, and trouble sleeping, Arden’s physical health is also better than ever. Although her life always seemed great on the outside, meditation has empowered her to finally feel good on the inside. Arden teaches Vedic Meditation to help others uncover their best selves. In addition to teaching, she currently manages content and programming at her new studio in Soho, The Spring Meditation.
