“How do you keep mindfulness a priority all through out the day, aside from your morning routine?


I have a membership at The Refuge Meditation near Fair Park. This studio space saved me after a difficult 2018 and continues to be a huge influence in my life.

"Purely," says Rachel Fox, owner of The Refuge Meditation, a newly opened yoga studio in Dallas, "it's getting volumes of oxygen into the body."

Towards the end of last year, I went on an Outdoor Voices-organized nature hike with an assemblage of cool fitness people, and heard one woman say The Refuge was the best thing in their life. That’s an endorsement….” continue reading

“Today we’d like to introduce you to Rachel Fox.

Rachel, we’d love to hear your story and how you got to where you are today both personally and as an entrepreneur.
In the present, you will usually find me at The Refuge Meditation in Exposition Park, a wellness studio I own and operate in partnership with my younger brother Alex. I compose these words from the loft of the private gallery + studio residence we share a few blocks down the street….” continue reading
