These days, meditation can be found in all areas of life – from hospitals exploring its benefits for patients with serious illnesses to schools who recommend it for children.Rinzler refuses to talk money, revealing only that classes are often full – and the 75 numbered pads in his studios have been reserved online 70,000 times in just 18 months.Companies are also reaping meditation's benefits.Emily Fletcher, an ex-actress who has taught meditation since 2012, launched a special program for companies 18 months ago.Meditation's newfound popularity is of such high intensity, neither Rinzler nor Fletcher is concerned about competing studios popping up over time.
